.........mmm....... I'd hate to barge in on this very social conversation..... :P

best place to read huh...? mmm.... anywhere as long as I can read, not be rude while reading, not feel like vomiting afterwards, have ENOUGH light, where no one will ask for me (nearly impossible in school...), when I'm not eating, when I'm not wet, when I'm not a 'visual' audience (hey, people can talk and talk to me, but that doesn't mean I'm physicly there.)... when my siblings aren't argueing, when I'm about to sleep .....

anywhere except when it is inconvinient. Personally, I have not found a favorite spot due to uncomfortable reading positions.... specially when the book is heavy. I can't sit and read it.... too uncomfortable. then lying on your somach... well, it's uncomfortable to the elbows, specially in bed. I don't know. maybe my bean bag?
But the best way to read?comfortably, if not entirely peaceful like a park? is at the dinning room with the long huge mahogany table.... peaceful enough, too, as it is blocked from all others but the door to the kitchen and the door to the hallway.

*shruggs* I really haven't thought of it before.

I tried to read outside but a fly kept buzzing around, driving me insane. For some reason I tend to be easily distracted when reading.

I know its a cliche but i love reading in the bath. I could lay there for hours and i do whenever i can. Also whenever I am forced onto a bus i have to have a book with me otherwise i feel totally weird. Don't ask why! I always have a book with me however to pull out and read at the first opportunity.

One place I don't like to read is at the library. It is so noisy in there and the noise doesn't come from the patrons, it comes from the employees. Whatever happened to the librarian who always says "Shhhhhhhhhhhhh?"

The library near my home is part of the city library system. The libraries of my childhood were always silent. This particular one is incredibly noisy, as I said,
it's the employees of the library who talk so loudly, not the patrons. They actually shout across the room to one another. They do not use hushed tones.

If it has a quiet study I haven't found it yet. Other than the ladies restroom. There's a Barnes and Noble's nearby and I would much rather read there. Lots of people come and go, but at least they're quiet.

Mine, fortunately is hushed. The employees are loud out back and quiet around the main area. (I used to work as a volunteer so I know.)

My Father started me reading, He would take me into a book store, hand me a book, and have me sit in the corner and read till he came back(yes in the store) Ever since that, I could read anywhere. My best spot to put down a few chapters is in a nice quiet bubble bath...( with the doors bolted shut) Thank god for 2 bathroom homes...

So if you really want to know about where do i like to Read, then i will tell you that i do like to Read from Library more than other Places. Because Library is that Place, where we can have any type Book to Read. Like General Knowledge, Religious, Historical etc...............
