Where do you like to read? post #1  quote:



Everyone has their little niche in the world where they can hang out and dive into a book.

Personally, I sit in front of the TV. I know, it's weird. Growing up with a big family I have the uncanny ability to tune out other things, so I always find myself on the couch in fron of the TV when I read. It's not really intentional.

Anyone chill at the book store, like Borders or Barnes & Noble? Sipping coffee and all that?

I usually read at night in bed, on my back, poorly illuminated from across the room. It's the perfect opportunity to grow heavy eyelids and pass out.

Well, I can read, anywhere, at any time. I have a book on me almost all the time.
If I'm not carrying a book, then I've got my palm pilot on me, which has about 20 books loaded on it at all times.

Where do I prefer to read? Somewhere that is relaxing, and the temp is comfortable.
I like to lay in bed at night before going to sleep and reading a chapter or two.
I also love sitting in the Lazy-Boy chair and reading.

But, I read at the dinner table, at my desk at work, in the car, etc....

Reading is just so wonderful. Like you, Heck, I can read with music or the tv at top sound.
I don't allow other things to distract me. I fall "into" my books... and shut everything else out.

It's funny, reading in the library is just too quiet for me. Sometimes I laugh or slam the book on the table and get loud. I don't want to get shushed.

I've done that too, chodder. It's nice... because, for the most part, a bookstore is treated with the respect of a library. It's quiet, and comfy.

I've been sitting in my chair this morning, reading, right by the window. It's so nice and peaceful...

I prefer reading somewhere outside, in the park, by the beach. Or in a library so long as there are WINDOWS. Somewhere without distractions. Let's the imagination wander better...

Well, that and I tend to react ALOUD to what I'm reading.

Illuminate... I used to go to the park with a blanket and lay down and read for a few hours. That is such a relaxing thing to do. I should go and do that more often. And the beach.... that's cool. You can take a chair and an umbrella and sit out on the sand for awhile as well. I really need to do that some weekend.

I take the train to and from work everyday and that is my main reading time, it is about half an hour each way, so an hour a day, and I absolutely chew through books.

After four + years, I have had to re-read so many of my books and borrow off friends to keep me going but now they are building a new library just across the road from me , so I will never be without new things to read!!!!! YAY!!!!!

I read during my classes. Hey -- why waste any time? Just like HECK, nothing can distract me, so I can as well read in my living room with my brother and sisters fighting all along, and I often do. I also love downloading books and reading them in front of computer screen... Hey, is there a *bad* place to read??

I like to read lying on the ground with my feet on the couch, almost upside-down. I have to orient myself so the sun is coming through the window and shining on the pages.

I like to read in the bath tub. Nothing like running a nice hot bath and reading. It's about the only time I get to myself. Besides that, in the winter I have a nice comfy chair by the fire place I like to curl up in and read.

N, I want to get one of those bathtub racks, that goes from one side to the other, and you can put a book there, a drink, candle, whatever. That would be the perfect gift... and I would be a wrinkled prune, because I would stay in there for hours and just read.

I know, I'm always trying to think of ways of making something that will hold a book and have something you can turn the pages with. I cn't use those bath rack things because I have and oddly shaped garden tub.

get one with a fridge, microwave, wheels, and an internal combustion engine and you'd NEVER HAVE TO LEAVE

Like some other people on here....i can read wherever i am...in bed, in the bath, in front of the tv, at school, in the middle of the road...
and people cant disturb me, they will call my name numerous times and recieve no answer they have to come over and snatch the book out of my hands! Cant tell you how many teachers have had to do that!

If we all leave you alone, Tear, will you give up and go buy LOTR?????
