When I was a kid, I loved to read and did it nonstop, especially over summer vacation. I could finish multiple books a week for sure.
It's been a while since I've read at that rate! Now I'm lucky to get through a book every couple months.
So I was really excited to try the NOOK GlowLight Plus, Barnes & Noble's eReader.
Of course, I had to channel my youth, and I immediately start reading Judy Blume's latest book, In the Unlikely Event. It's just one of more than 4 million books, magazines, and newspapers available!
My favorite thing about the new NOOK? It's definitely the small size and light weight.
It's light enough to carry in my purse, which makes it perfect for subway reading and traveling.
And of course, it's perfect for curling up on a couch with my fave Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea!
I've been sneaking in a few pages whenever I have a minute.
The built-in ambient light makes reading equally as pleasurable in light or dark, rain or shine. I've been reading in bed more (no bright light to disturb my sleeping husband).
And I can't wait to tuck it into my beach bag next summer!
I love trying out new cookbooks, so I even downloaded The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker and got to work on a new recipe!
The new NOOK has definitely helped me rediscover my love for reading, and this Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea is the perfect thing to pair with my new books!
This wonderful, lightly sweetened drink is the definition of comfort. It's warm and creamy with a hint of cinnamon and so quick to make.
A sip is like a hug in a mug ... especially when paired with a few cookies!
How to Make Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea
I usually drink my tea plain, but the addition of a few simple ingredients makes this Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea a delicious treat.
To make this easy milk tea, you'll brew a batch of tea flavored with a few cinnamon sticks. Once the tea is ready, you'll sweeten it with a little maple syrup and vanilla, then add in hot milk.
It only takes a few minutes to make this wonderful milk tea, which I love (almost as much as the yummy taste)!
So grab your favorite book and relax with a cup of this Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea!
Customize Your Tea
Try customizing this Sweet Cinnamon Milk Tea by adding more/less sweetener (my version is mildly sweet) or your favorite blend of spices.
Cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves would all be wonderful.

P.S. Isn’t my cutest mug? I get so many questions about it! I bought it years ago from Starbucks, and I kind of live in fear it will break … ha ha. This Knit Hand-Warmer Mug is similar.
