Reading Between the Grinds

Beverages, Events, What are we up to?

We all know that a story isn’t just a cluster of words and a person isn’t just flesh and bone. Stories are ideas, opinions, and expressions. People are so much more. Here at Between the Grinds, we never make the mistake of judging a book by its cover.

This month belongs to the Brits

Our featured British author of the week

Did you know that Disney turned down Huxley’s draft of a screenplay for Alice in Wonderland? It’s important to understand that many great writers have been rejected at some point in their careers. We must follow their example and persevere when facing opposition. Never give up!

Help yourself to other interesting facts about

Aldous Huxley.

Rent your copy of Brave New World today! Our book club meeting dedicated to British writers takes place on February 27th at 6pm.

The Grinds

Get your morning cuppa at Between the Grinds. Our monthly theme demands an appropriate drink so try our London Fog today. This delicious full-leaf black tea is infused with bergamot and lavender. Add a splash of cream and you’ve got a foggy London day in a cup. If you strike up a conversation about our British author of the week, refills are on the house.

  1. I have always been a huge fan of Aldous Huxley! I read Brave New World in high school and just recently read The Doors of Perception. That’s where the rock and roll band The Doors got there name from, fun fact. I like how your page has a lot of information on exactly what the purpose of your blog is. For now, Jill Brockmann is the only one who knows the purpose of my blog. I am currently reading A Clockwork Orange, it’s always been one of my favorite movies and I thought I should read the book as well. Your page looks great by the way!

  2. Thank you very much for all of the positive comments. Ashley, Game of Thrones is one of my favorite book series. I certainly hope George will finish the story in his lifetime. You should check out Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy if you are a fan of fantasy. J1584245, I did not know about the influence Huxley had on The Doors. A Clockwork Orange is an amazing book. I really enjoyed reading it. The slang language they use was a little confusing at first but its easy to adapt after a few chapters. Thank you for sharing!

  3. One of my all-time favorite writers is Irish novelist and poet James Joyce. I spent a college semester reading and studying his novel “Ulysses” at the same time that I was thinking about my life in a big way. Like the protagonist Stephan Dedalus, I was figuring out how to break away from a traditional Catholic upbringing and political conditioning. It would be great to start up a James Joyce book club and discuss the takeaways over Irish coffee. How can we start one up?

  4. This blog post is amazing Jodi!! I’m already looking forward to reading your newer posts! Thank you for sharing the London Fog drink! It sounds delicious! I’m going to have to give a try one day, either in person or with the recipe!
    Before school started up I was reading ‘The Alchemist’, by Paulo Coelho, that I got from my parents for my birthday! It’s a great book about following your dreams! I never got a chance to finish it but I try to get a few pages in every weekend. The one book that I read a year or so ago that really moved me was ‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak! His writing style drew me into the book from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down! The movie was equally as amazing!
