Books and booze

AbeBooks (who gets far too much of my disposable income) has a feature on "Best Booze and Books Pairings". My favorite is this:

Read: Busman's Honeymoon by Dorothy L. Sayers
Drink: Anything from Château Lafite Rothschild

Sayers’ posh sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey enjoyed the finer things in life and that included good wine. A classic red from Château Lafite Rothschild (perhaps out of our price range), one of the most famous producers of Bordeaux, would be his cup of tea.

Why yes, thank you, I will have a glass of that, Lord Peter, and a little John Donne would not go amiss.

They also pair Oscar Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray with something called Oscar Wilde Mild, brewed by Mighty Oak Brewing Company in Maldon, Essex. That sounds like a bit more work to acquire than the wine (though indubitably cheaper!).

Read all their suggestions here. Hm, maybe a New Year's resolution: try all of these!

Speaking of booze and books, check out firewhiskeyfic. I'm amused by the premise.
