My designated leave me alone I’m reading spot is my recliner in my library. I can close the doors, bring a snack and water, and just read. Sometimes the kitty comes and sits in my lap when I’m in there (since she has a cat door to get in – we use the closet in that room for her litter box). Nowadays I don’t really read all that much, but I can bring baby in there too in his bouncy chair where he can sit and watch me read heh.

My favorite reading spot should be here:My Library 1This is my library. The problem is, I can never seem to find the time to actually spend in said library. Nine times out of ten, I end up reading in the bathroom, stretched flat out on the floor on my stomach, while the hot water fills in the big soaking tub… Although I have carpeting in my bathroom, this position is still not the most comfortable. And then I fall asleep! The boyfriend usually comes in at some point. Shuts off the water and brings me a pillow and blanket. He knows better than to disturb my slumber nowdays. I wake up sometime around 3am stiff as a 90 year old man and wonder where I am. I always regret falling asleep on the bathroom floor and wasting all that hot water… but hey, it beats the alternative of falling asleep in the tub and dropping my book! YIKES!


I really don’t have a favorite reading spot, per se. I do like to read outside. So long as there is some shade and no bugs. But I could just as easily curl up on the couch when the weather is blistery, Texas, hot. I could totally see myself reading here: 


With an adult beverage. In a coconut, or at the very least with a little paper umbrella.

    I love to read in the lounge room where it is air conditioned as it is hot all year round. I usually sit sideways on my recliner so the light from the window is on my page, with one leg hanging over the side, sipping a cup of coffee.

    My other favourite place is sitting outside in the late afternoon, with a glass of white wine, watching the kids play while listening to an audiobook.

    Favorite reading space?? Ummm. Anywhere! LOL! I passed a guy walking in Sam’s the other day with his head in a book & I thought that would so be me if I didn’t have to push the buggy around!

    My favorite spot is in my bed. I’ll lay down on my stomach with a pillow propping me up and just read. I love the solitude, I can really immerse myself into the book.

        Sometimes, but I’m a sucker for punishment evidently since I keep doing it. Unfortunately my room is the only ‘free zone’ for me to read. I’m thinking of getting a comfy chair soon.

      My arms get tired when I read laying down too, but laying down is really nice. I like to read on the couch too.

    I have 2 favorite reading spots. The first one (and where I most often read) is on our reclining sofa in our living room. I usually start out with my legs curled up underneath me leaning against the arm of the sofa and then when my legs get tired I recline the sofa, which has on a couple of occasions led to a nap. My second favorite spot is outside in our back yard when it’s a cool, sunny day. I sit at this round white table with some ice tea and enjoy the weather and my book.

      I like to read reclined too and I’m so with you that reading outside when the weather is nice is so lovely!
