How do you read?

My bookends

It may seem like an odd question, but how do you read? I don't mean mouthing the words, following along with a finger type reading. I mean how do you read? In the bathtub, curled up on the couch with a cat on your lap? At a table with a cup of coffee and a cigarette, in bed wearing warm fuzzy socks?

I have a few ways that I read, OK more than a few.

The couch in various spots, curled up, stretched out, laying down. Sometimes covered with a blanket or a cat sometimes not.

The bath, there is nothing like a tub full of water and a good book.

I also read at the gym when I am on the boring elliptical, more often than not this  is on my Nook. The nook is wonderful for that, it fits just right in the book holder and I don't have to worry about loosing my spot if the book is thicker than the space provided.

So, how do you read?

I read a lot on the bus. But at home either curled up on the couch or laying in bed. But anywhere comfortable is a good place to read.

I would love to be able to take the bus to work, just so I could read. Alas, here in Oly the busses just don't run when I need them to. You are lucky in that regard.

I'll read pretty much anywhere, anyhow, but it's best when I can put my feet up for some reason. I love the read in the bath, but for some reason that only happens about twice a year, darn it!

Shelley, you so have to get more bath reading time in. I try for at least once a month. That does not always work out but when I do get a bath read in. It is wonderful.

My favorite reading spot is in a hammock beneath a shady oak. Or in my rocker on the porch. Or laying on the floor in the living room. I guess I don't have a favorite spot! I'm a very tactile type and love "books" for their beauty and feel. I think I need an iPad, also, so I can read more, so I can learn more technology stuff, so I can get more gadgets to read about.

I would love to have a hammock to read in. Maybe I can talk Honey into getting one.
