Where is your favorite place to read? Do you enjoy reading at home or do you like to read at a library or while out having coffee or tea? I’ve never read a book while at a restaurant or out having a cup of tea somewhere but sometimes I think I’d like to. I think some people do go to the library just to read but I go just to check out books. By the time I have the stack I want to bring home there’s no time left to sit and read there. I know that some bookstores allow you to sit down and read but I’ve always been a bit nervous about doing that especially if I might not buy the book. Have any of you done this before?
I think I like to read the most while I am home, stretched out across the bed on my stomach or curled up in a corner of the couch. If I am reading a particularly good book that I don’t want to put down, I have worked on supper at the same time, stirring whatever I am making while reading. That is when you know it’s a good book!
I think a good book and a cup of tea go together quite well. Someday I will enjoy a cup while I am out and about and I will do some reading at the same time. I guess as long as I’m not keeping other customers from coming in it shouldn’t be a problem! Maybe the key is to go at a slow time of day when tea rooms or coffee places are not too busy.
I read while waiting for appointments but I can’t say that I really enjoy it. I’m always interrupted or not able to focus for some reason. It isn’t a time to read a book that I am really into because I WILL have to put it down sooner than I would like unless I know that I will be waiting for a lengthy period of time.
Sometimes it’s nice to read by a lake on a warm summer day. I think as long as there’s a little breeze to keep the mosquitoes away it can be the perfect place to read. Maybe you read on the subway, a bus, a plane or even on a boat! I’ve seen people, book in hand, reading as they are walking down the street. That could be a bit hazardous! I guess no more so than the people we see walking down the street texting though.
