Almost two years ago I had an idea to create a blog about a few things I love: eats and reads.

The vision was to pair good eats and drinks with good reads. Great idea except that I was buried under dissertation research and a book manuscript. I had little time for reading anything other than my data and my own drafts. Still the idea lingered.

Typically not one to wait until “someday,” somehow my vision remained just a dream. Then in early February I was awakened, literally and figuratively, by a dream about a blog called Eat Eat Read. Later that morning I put this blog in motion and here we are.

Life is meant to be savored today. Food and reads are my way of doing so. Join me.
