My most favourite place to read is bed, either in it, or on it! And I also can't go to sleep at night without snuggling up in bed with a good book, for at least an hour, often much longer;D

Where does everyone else love to read? Do you have multiple places you love to read? Where do you find you get your best/most uninterrupted reading done?


message 2: by Sam (new)

Sam  (sam222) I usually read in my bed at night under the covers, because I really can't focus very well during the day, because there is just to much noise during the day for me to focus enough to read.

That's different Michael, at the bottom of a tree! But beautifully shady, and relaxing, so it'd be nice!

★ Jess  | 3068 comments In my bed, curled up at nighttime. Nothing beats that :)
During the day, I love sitting on a floating/inflatable chair on the pool, with my legs half in the water.

Laura | 4298 comments On the airchair when it's a lovely warm day :) Used to love sitting in a park against this huge sandstone wall and read for a while.

I tried reading in the bath but i always found it uncomfortable and the book would get affected by the heat :s

message 14: by Lynxie (new)

Lynxie | 698 comments I pretty much will read anywhere... but my favourite place would have to be either in the recliner in the lounge room or snuggled up in bed.

message 23: by Kim Marie (new)

Kim Marie | 894 comments Growing up as a teenager in a house full of annoying brothers, I found the only total privacy and peace & quiet for reading was to be found in the bathtub!

These days I retire to the bed for a peaceful read with a big curved pillow at my back. I've also done a lot of reading over the years of train travel but there was always the chance that I'd become so engrossed that I'd miss my station :((

Jussy (j-s-e) | 6 comments Comfy chair, complete silence, tim-tams and a ginger tea :D Might do that now actually.

message 28: by Graham (new)

Graham (giraham) | 60 comments Don't really read in bed, usually on my couch, I live near a beach so I like taking a book down in summer and sit at the quiet end, or in the nearby park. Or down the pub in the afternoon and have a couple of cheeky beers. Or at work when there's nothing to do.

message 39: by Dean (new)

Dean Mayes My favorite place to read is on the balcony of my parents in law's holiday house overlooking Pelican Lagoon at Kangaroo Island. I shall be doing that very thing in about a month. I'll get to finish "The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society"

What a wonderful place to be able to enjoy reading, and relaxing Dean! I really enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society when I read it last year:)

I have visited Kangaroo Island - a beautiful place! Don't know Pelican Lagoon though - we stayed at Penneshaw and West Bay and tried to cover as much as we could. Love that seal colony!

Frances Clark (throughtime) | 14 comments In the doctor's waiting room. No I'm kidding. It's actually in bed. The problem is the book keeps hitting me on the head and waking me up.

message 46: by Sharon (new)

Sharon | 4396 comments I love reading in my comfy recliner and I love reading in bed especially at night when it's nice and quite. Although sometimes I tend to fall asleep and lose my page :(


message 47: by Abby (new)

Abby Min | 60 comments I love reading anywhere listening to music.... :)


Liam || Books 'n Beards (madbird) I used to read in bed, but found that it put me to sleep too fast. So now I tend to read at my computer before bed, or pretty much anytime during the day.

The best place I have ever read in is probably in the Mortlock Building in the South Australian State Library. Very relaxing.


message 49: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 20 comments In bed! If I read anywhere else I get too distracted
