Literary Libations: Flor De Campo

Share it Please

I'm sucker for red wines with hints of raspberry or strawberry and, lucky me, Flor De Campo has both! My house has been so hot I've had to keep it in the fridge so that it doesn't turn, but normally you could keep it on your counter. Keep in mind, most red wine will turn if they reach 80 degrees or higher for an extended period. I actually found that I liked this wine chilled, it made it nice and refreshing against the hot temperatures inside and out!


I know I'm a little late to the party, but I've finally begun to read Life Of Pi. So far it is a very interesting book and I'm intrigued, largely by Pi's knowledge about animals and general acceptance of everything around him. He has yet to get stuck floating in the ocean, which I believe is most of the story, so I'm still in the trial period.

Life of Pi is probably not a book I would ordinarily purchase, however I didn't have to because I'm currently using my 30 day free trial of Kindle Unlimited. At the moment I'm seriously considering joining for a paid description. I normally purchase about 2 kindle books a month at about $8.99 each. With Kindle Unlimited after paying $9.99 a month you get access to the entire Kindle Unlimited library for no additional charge per book. That means as long as there are books I want to read, I come out ahead! Keep in mind not all Kindle books are a part of Kindle Unlimited. I highly recommend doing the 30 day trial and spending some time vetting the reading list. Are there titles you want to read? Authors you like? How quickly do you read? If you aren't going to read more than one book a month, it might not be worth it. However, if you read quickly or have a lot of free time, this just may be the best way for you to whip through several books a month with out stressing your wallet. Worst case scenario you get to read at least one book for free and then cancel your subscription.

Have you read Life Of Pi or watched the movie? If so, did you enjoy it? (No spoilers, please!)

Do you use an e-reader? And if so would you use a subscription service for books?

  3. I am a huge book worm. I swear I have to read a novel a week. But I've never been a fan of digital books I've always preferred paper versions.

  4. I don't have an e-reader, I prefer actual books- that's so weird, considering I'm high-tech with everything else! :)

  5. That wine looks delicious. I want to get an e-reader. I've been on the fence about whether to get a Kindle or the one from Barnes & Nobles. Lately, I haven't had a lot of time to read, but I was reading once a month. I think I'm going to wait until the end of the year or beginning of the year to make a decision. Just to see who comes out with what. LOL
