A Warm Cup of Tea and a Good Used Book = Heaven


Stone Leaf Tea House in Historic Marble Works

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”  – C.S. Lewis

“Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.” – Bill Watterson, The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book 

“If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her.  – Rosemarie Urquico

“This is what we do. We make tea and read books and watch people die.”  – Megan Crewe, The Way We Fall


Warming pot of tea

“She sits in her usual ample armchair, with piles of books and unopened magazines around her. She sips cautiously from the mug of weak herb tea which is now her substitute for coffee.  ― Alice Munro, Too Much Happiness

“There are few nicer things than sitting up in bed, drinking strong tea, and reading.” – Alan Clark

IMG_1699When you show your receipt from Otter Creek Used Books at Stone Leaf Teahouse you get 10% off a pot of tea. You can’t get any better than that on the winter days we have been having. Enjoy the soothing, relaxing experience of a carefully poured cup of tea from Stone Leaf Teahouse.  You owe it to yourself to take a moment of time to sit with your newly purchased used book. Read, sip and enjoy. Unwind.  I’ll head out to check my mailbox, drop off my mug and on the way back will pick it up and come back to put my feet up and take a moment to read a few pages. Perfect!

“Tea would arrive, the cakes squatting on cushions of cream, toast in a melting shawl of butter, cups agleam and a faint wisp of steam rising from the teapot shawl.”  – Gerald Durrell, My Family and Other Animals [Had to include a quote from one of my favorite books.]
