This week's topic is: ..Freebie! So, I went with an old one...Top Ten Favorite Reading Spots
|My cozy corner of the bed with my |
1. My bed
I actually only read in bed at night. I'm not sure why, but it feels weird to me to sit in bed at any time of the day other than nighttime so this one is reserved specifically for bed time. Although, if the book is good enough, actually bed time ends up being hours after I get in bed :P
|She's quite the ham.|
2. The couch
For some reason it's never just reading when I'm on the couch. Maybe because it's slightly uncomfortable. No matter the reason, when I read on the couch the tv is usually on or my computer is in my lap. No, it's not really productive, but I enjoy multitasking.
|Don't judge the pattern, it was cheap.|
3. The papasan
This chair is the bomb for reading, especially if you're in for a good nap too (as my dog always seems to be).
|Top: reading room.|
Bottom: whole library, all glass
4. The library
There's just something about being surrounded by all those books and bookish people that makes it a perfectly lovely reading spot. Plus, my library has everything from cozy nooks to this super-cool glass atrium.
|Coffee shop of choice. |
It's literally a 60 second walk away
5. Coffee Shops
Most have that cozy feeling and they stay nice and hushed without feeling like staying quiet is a rule. Plus, the smell of coffee doesn't hurt.
|Gas Works Park. Plenty of grass & sun|
6. Outside on a sunny day
I don't care if it's sitting on a park bench or lying on a blanket in the grass anywhere will do just fine as long as the sun is beating down on me. I'm kind of like a lizard when it comes to soaking up the rays :P
|Tea + Book = Perfect|
7. Curled up with cocoa or tea on a cold day
Not to be outdone by sunny days, nice rainy or snowy days are good for curling up somewhere with a blanket, a warm fuzzy friend, and a nice warm beverage.

8. In the car
Not while I'm driving, of course (most of the time), but if anyone else happens to be in the driver's seat I tend to get plenty of reading done. I think it helps to not own any sort of 3G device so the car makes for a nice distraction-free zone.
I know, that's not a full top ten list, but I honestly can't think of anywhere else. Some people like the bath, but I'm deathly afraid of ruining the book (I'm a klutz so it's likely).
