Location, location, location!

Happy Thursday!

Today I'm participating in the Booking Through Thursday meme hosted by Deb. Click the button below if you'd like to play along.


Here's today's question:

What’s your favorite place to read? Do you have more than one? Can you read anywhere, or do you need things to be “just right?” Bonus points for sharing a photo of your favorite spot.

I can—and do—read just about anywhere: in the car, in bed, in the bathtub, while lying on the couch or sitting on a hard bench at story time as someone else entertains my kids. I read while I brush my teeth and when I cook dinner. I read at the computer and outside at the patio table and during commercials when I'm watching TV. When I was a kid, I even read during church. I know, I know... ☺

My kitchen table, a few of my current reads, and my favorite
mug. (Yes, it's a Santa mug, but I use it year-round!) Behind
the mug is a pine tree branch that my son found and asked me
to put in water. What we won't do for our kids! ☺
My favorite place to read right now, though, is at the kitchen table, early in the morning before anyone else is awake. I get up at around 5:30 each weekday, pack my son's lunch, and then sit down with a cup of coffee and a book for a few peaceful minutes before I need to rush on to the next thing on my to-do list. I love easing into my day by immersing myself in someone else's story.



What about you? What's your favorite place to read?

  2. It's so nice that you have a few minutes of reading time before the chaos of the day starts! I curl up in a chair in my bedroom, and if I'm cold, I wrap myself up in a blanket!

    1. It definitely comes in handy during boring waits at places like the doctor's office. :)

  6. My favorite spot is actually on an airplane or an airport for completely (almost anyway) uninterrupted and sustained reading. At home though I like my living room because it's so under-used but light and cheerful.

    1. Both sound good to me. I especially like the idea of reading in an underused room. Wish I had one! ;)

  7. I'm like you - I can read anywhere - and I do like me a nice cup of steaming hot tea when I'm reading.

    1. Oh, I agree. Tea or coffee make reading all the better!

  8. Oh how I wish I could read in the card! If I even read a single word in there, I get instant car sickness. I love to read either curled up on our comfy couch or in bed.

    1. I love reading in bed, but it's dangerous because I often just end up falling asleep. :)

  9. I like to read at the library in quiet. They have a wonderful desk near the magazines that has a elevated slant where it's easier to read.

  10. My favorite place to read is in bed, just before I fall asleep. It is my sleeping pill! I also like to read in my rocker/recliner that my husband bought me for my 50th birthday. But it almost ALWAYS puts me to sleep, even in the middle of the day!

    1. Reading in bed works like a sleeping pill for me, too!

  11. I can read anywhere too. I feel so sorry for those people who get carsick when they read. That would completely suck!

    My favorite place to read is anywhere someone isn't bothering me.

  12. I used to read anywhere, too. Nowadays I am home alone all the time, so I enjoy being quietly in a nice comfortable chair with a cup of coffee. :)
