Chat Between Chapters: Where do you like to read?

 Do you have a special reading spot, or do you read anywhere you can? Where do you like to read?

Julie Review Avatar Julie:

I have a spot specifically designated for reading. It is a recliner in my library. But I haven’t once read in there. WHY? Well I haven’t quite gotten into a routine in this new house yet since we’re still transitioning and making changes here and there, so I simply haven’t had time to sit down and read for long periods of time. So for the time being, I read anywhere I can. Lately it has been in the car on my commute on audio books, or at lunch at work on ebooks on the computer. But I do prefer to read on a couch or recliner because I can get comfortable and not quite be sitting up and not quite be laying down. Perfect reading angles.

My favorite reading spot comfort wise is the sofa in my library. It is the perfect size for me and oh so comfy. However, like Julie, I rarely get to read in the actual room I have designated for just that. Instead, I read mostly on my ipad mini at work on my lunch break, audio books while I am working, and in bed at night before I fall asleep. One of my other favorite reading spots is in the bathtub beacuse it is one of the only places where I can be and not get intruded upon, but here lately I have been so tired that I fall asleep in the tub!!! This is NOT cool because not only do I not get any reading done, but I almost dropped my kindle in the water last night. NOT okay!!!!

What about you? Where do you get most of your reading done????

      Tina, I read anywhere as well.. in line at the grocery store or in line at the cafe at work, or in the truck while the boyfriend drives us somewhere. I used to get car sick, but I read so much in the car now, that it no longer bothers me.

    Julie, I have a recliner in my library too that doesn’t get sat in often. 😉 And Rose, I couldn’t read in the tub – I would absolutely drop my book or ereader in the water! 😉 I read pretty much anywhere I can but my most favorite spot is in an Adirondack chair outside under the trees. Of course, I can only do that during warm weather months. 🙂

      reading outside is nice, but not with an ereader. The sun interferes. Go Figure.

        But your Kindle is e-ink right? So there’s no glare. I like reading outside with mine.

          I have this wonderful paperwhite kindle, and yet I find myself carrying my ipad mini around every where while my paperwhite sits neglected.

      Hehe that’s cute. If I want to read outside I have to do it during the colder months. Cause Texas summers are not comfortable reading environments lol.

      • Rose

        But Texas summertime outdoor reading is never a lonely event… you have tons of bugs and mosquitos and other misc. biting stinging incects that keep you company while you read! FUN!

      I miss reading in bed. But, I think the bed makes it hard to stay upright just enough to be comfortable without falling asleep lately lol

    Terri, I do this, too, but I am constantly falling asleep and never remembering to mark my spot. I have also dropped my heavy hardback on my face while reading in bed. People do not tend to think of reading as dangerous, but after having 4 pounds of book knock you right in the face, tell me again reading is not an extreme past time!

    I read in bed, like the lazy bum that I am 😉 Preferably with my fluffy orange cat on my feet, and a diet mountain dew nearby. ‘Cause that’s how I roll, LOL.

      Have you ever dropped an eReader or a hardback on your face? Yea you won’t love reading in bed as much after a while of that lol
