I am a person who loves to read, and I read a lot of book blogs and review sites. One of my favourites is Smart Bitches, Trashy Books and it is the smart bitches I have to thank for alerting me to my latest favourite timewaster, Literary Starbucks, a Tumblr run by three students from Carleton College in Minnesota, USA. This is hilarious. According to their "About" page,
This page is run by two English majors and one History major who have WAY too much time on their hands. One day we thought, what would all of history’s famous authors and characters order if they lived in modern times and went to Starbucks?
The rest is history.
Give it a look! I loved the George R.R. Martin one, and the Wordsworth one is pretty funny too. The Tolstoy entry reminded me of this scene from the IT Crowd.
