BookBlogWriMo: Where I Read

Today’s topic for BookBlogWriMo is “Where You Read.”

I prefer to read curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, but like I said in my How I Read post, I can pretty much read wherever I am. Standing up at the kitchen counter. Lying in bed. Sitting on the porch. I don’t really like reading in bed because it makes me too sleepy and I only really get a few pages in, but as of late, I’ve been using up that time as well, as it helps clear my mind and settle me.

If I’m really into a book, I could read in the middle of a crowded party or at a huge football game or alone in my living room. However, I find it difficult to concentrate on a book in public if I’m still trying to get into it.

Preferred places to read are my couch or on the porch early in the morning during a cool fall morning with a cup of coffee in my hand. I live on ten acres of land, so it’s nice and quiet and calm.

I’ll say that if I had all the money in the world, this is how I’d read (except I’d be next to a fireplace with a cup of coffee and a puppy in my lap):

  2. First off, that beautiful chair in the picture looks so amazingly comfortable. I think I’m in love. As for reading I can’t focus at all when people are talking. Other noises are fine but hearing someone talk takes my complete attention off of my book and on to them. I wish I could immerse myself in books when in public places. My favorite reading spot is my couch also, coffee or tea in hand. 🙂

  3. I’m like you. I can (and do) read anywhere at any time. And ditto reading in public places. Even if it is a quiet waiting room, like at the doctor’s office while my neighbor is getting her treatment, I prefer either a book I’m well into or a series book where I don’t have to worry about no knowing the characters.

    If I wake up in the night for more than a couple of minutes and know I won’t go right back to sleep, I read. Usually I can then sleep within half an hour or so. If it stretches longer, I rejoice in the additional reading time! I’m retired, so have the luxury of sleeping later on most mornings if my body wants to do so.
