I was realizing the other day, that I only actually read in a few places. My favorite place to read is in my library/art room. I have a glider chair that I like to curl up in and can read there for hours. It’s only a few feet away from my computer, so that makes it super easy to review whatever book I’ve just finished. If of course, I don’t procrastinate doing so…
I also read on my exercise bike. I try to do 30minutes 3-4 times a week. Sometimes I don’t make it that often, and sometimes I manage longer. But either way, sitting on the bike gives me 30min of reading time for that day no matter what else I’ve been up to. (And it makes actually using the bike go faster! I don’t tend to stick to the 30minutes unless I have a book to read.)
I may have said this before, but I LOVE my job! And after 2.5 years at a job that I can honestly say was the worst job ever (can we say 10-16 hour work days with no breaks??), almost anything would be wonderful. But this current job? Lets me read at work. If of course, it’s slow and I’ve processed all the faxes as they come in. Some days I get in 6-7 hours of reading, because no one calls and no one faxes anything over. If they didn’t let me read I might go just a bit crazier than I already am!
The final place I read is in the car. I know a lot of people who can’t read in the car, but it’s never bothered me at all unless we’re driving on winding roads with lots of trees all around us. Since I don’t drive (yes, I know. I’m insane. That is a well-established thing. *nods*) I have plenty of time to read while on the way to other places.
I read in bed as a child, but living with cats means that if I’m in the bed, so are they. And they will do anything in their power to make it so I cannot read. Rubbing on the book, sticking their heads between me and the book, reaching out a paw and pulling down on the edge of the book, standing or laying on the book. Pretty much anything goes. And if a book is left somewhere they can get at it, Miles especially loves to lay on it so it can’t be seen. She then refuses to move and glares at me if I try to take it from her.
Where is your favorite place to read? Do you read in lots of different places, or only one or two?
