Read-A-Thon Hour 19

My midnight snack ended up being a Tim Tam, the unofficial BookCrossing Candy, and some jujube honey tea. I got that from a Korean grocery store; jujube is like a date, and the honey is like a thick jam/preserve. I melted it in hot water and it’s sweet and warming. I usually buy the citron honey or the ginger honey, and come to think of it, this jar was a gift. Either way, it’s delicious.
