I’ve eaten a lot of ice cream. I’ve read a lot of books. Enjoyed separately, ice cream and books would both easily make a list of my top 50 things of all time, but when enjoyed together I experience a level of bliss that’s difficult to top. I like my ice cream with maximum mix-ins, and my books with maximum relevance. And so it was inevitable: A relevant book pairing for every single Ben & Jerry’s flavor I’ve ever eaten.
