Kellyn Thompson (authorkellyn) | 1 comments As a kid, I loved reading in my bed in my room. As I got older, I loved reading outside at the park or at the beach. As an adult, I love reading on the bus/tram as I commute to/from work -- I even find excuses to run errands so I can take the bus because I love reading there so much!

What about you? Where do you love to read, and has that changed over the years?

Jess Penhallow | 35 comments I like reading on public transport to. I can just escape into my book and ignore how awkward everything is! I also like reading in bed before I go to sleep.

Whatever makes you comfortable to read is important. I know I spent my fair share up a tree as a teen.

Paige (peyancy) | 5 comments I like to read stuffed up in a corner of my sofa, with a blanket and coffee.

Jan Pearson (janpj) | 4 comments I like reading on a recliner chair. I stopped reading in bed because I fall asleep at some novels; or sometimes remain sleepless.

Tammy Shu (tamutheshamu) i prefer reading at home on my "reading" chair, but most of the time i end up reading at night on my bed, which leads to me falling asleep (oops).

message 7: by Klain (new)

Klain reading in a train/bus is one of my favorite things ! I also love reading outside if the weather is good. By bad weather I'm reading in my bed, but I really dislike it because I get really fast, really sleepy.
I really want a reading chair, but well, I have no room for it (:

message 10: by Matthew (new)

Matthew Cross | 18 comments until up to 3 years ago on week days id mostly read on the 10 minute bus ride to work, try to read on my lunch break ( but when there's loads of people talking really loudly I cant do that) and the hour or so bus ride back home ( due to heavy traffic) but because used to work the un godly hours of 7 am to 7pm I was lucky if I got to read for half an hour at home . but now after not being able to work any more due to work wearing out the lower four disks in my back I can ideal read when ever I want but when my step kids are here and awake that's not as much as id hope but I do love to read sitting in a nice quiet living room with no distractions

I don't care where I read; just what I read. I can enjoy a book anywhere: whether it's in class when the teacher is yelling about differentials equations, or while commuting, or in my room with very poor lights, I find every situation conducive for reading. Unless, of course, there is nothing to read.

Matthew Cross | 18 comments your lucky being able to read that way i find it really annoying after sitting in a quiet room reading for half an hour and people come in and talk really loudly it makes me loose concentration and loose my place

Hallie (inkyhallie) | 5470 comments Mod
I've heard a lot of people say that. It just doesn't disturb me. I usually just block out the noise anyway.

message 17: by Heather (new)

Heather (hebbiezwill) | 1 comments My favorite is on a blanket in the backyard in the sun with my dog. Sadly I'm in Central New York so only have a handful of days like that in the summer.

message 20: by Kaye (new)

Kaye (kaye007) | 2 comments I love reading in my reading chair, curled up with a cup of tea. Or in the summer sprawled on a blanket under a tree in the park.

J.W. Ellis (jwellis) | 10 comments I prefer my recliner in my library, but normally its at work, or in my car waiting on my teenager

Melissa Eisenmeier (carpelibrumbooks) | 80 comments I like reading in bed or in a coffee shop, sans cell phone. It's easier to read if I don't have the distraction of a cell phone in my back pocket.
