home_bg.jpgWhat do you drink with your favorite book? Over at Bookninja, readers are comparing drink recipes to accompany their favorite books. The blog includes Sex on the Beach for reading Andrew Davidson’s The Gargoyle and a $1,500 bottle of Chateau Petrus for reading Michael Ondaatje’s Divisadero.

Add your favorite author and drink pairings in the comments section.
