Today's Topic: Where You Read - Pretty self-explanatory. Bonus for a picture!
Sorry, no picture! I have too many places I read! I sort of mentioned this in my last post but in the summer, I read on my screened in porch on this comfy reclined porch chair. It feels so amazing to be reading a real book under the warm sun in a comfy chair with a cat sitting on my feet ^.^
Next then! I always read at least an hour before bed in bed. Usually I read from my kindle then because it's more comfortable to lay sideways with my kindle rest on the bed (less arm strength required) than to hold up a gigantic book while I'm lying down. After a while, my arms would feel all numb and tingly which I take to be a bad sign. So I've mostly restricted myself to my kindle at night. Of course, sometimes I just can't resist finishing a hard copy that's so good.
I also read at school if I've finished a test or something early and have some extra time on my hands. I mostly carry my kindle around for that because there's absolutely no room in my backpack for a nice hard cover book.
If it's winter and I can't read my hard covers outside, I'll lay on my couch in front of the fire and read them! That's the best way to relax after a long day in the winter - curl up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate, a good hardcover, and a cat sleeping on my feet (yeah my cats love sitting on me...).
And last but certainly not least, I read at mealtimes. Mostly at lunch on weekends. I can never read during breakfast on a school day because I'll keep telling myself 'just one more chapter!' and soon I have 2 minutes until I have to leave. Yeah, not good. So I keep it confined to weekend lunches and sometimes dinner if my parents are gone (note to self, don't read at the table when other socializing people are present).
Also, I try to never read outside of any of those times and get my homework and other things done first. Because once I start reading, it's impossible to stop. I'll say to myself 'just one more chapter!' and then soon it's 2 in the morning and I haven't done any homework. I realized this was a serious problem a while ago and am still working on my self-control xD
Where do you read?
