Summertime Drink and Book Pairings - The Food, The Family, the Relationships

What says summer more than curling up with a good book and a nice glass of  . . . something? Unabridged dives into book and drink pairings in this episode. We share some books we've read, some books we hope to read, and the drinks that pop into our minds (sometimes spontaneously, and sometimes after a bit of Googling).

After you listen, head over to social media to let us know what you think of our recommendations and what you'd recommend! You can find us @unabridgedpod on Instagram and Twitter, at Unabridged on Litsy, and on Facebook.
