Portable Magic

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

PM's Melbourne Cup Day Task 3


Melbourne Cup Day (Nov. 5) Task 3: Aussies shorten everything, so Melbourne Cup Day is just called “Cup Day” – post a picture of your favorite cup or mug for your daily fix of coffee, tea or chocolate.


Although I have some very nice coffee cups that match my tableware set, I usually get my daily coffee in one of a few favorite novelty mugs. But my Banned Books mug is my absolute favorite, not only for the perfect size and weight, but also for the unique look and meaning of it.


I took some close ups below, and in some of them you can very faintly see that BANNED is embossed on the front, in the same color black as the mug.
