Book Blogger Hop: Favorite Reading Place

Book Blogger Hop

I had so much fun last week, I'm participating in the Crazy For Books Book Blogger Hop again this week. 

Today's question is: 

"Where is your favorite place to read? Curled up on the sofa, in bed, in the garden?"

My answer:

Anywhere I can.  I typically read on the love seat in the living room so I can keep an eye on the kids. Actually, I do just about everything on there - work, eat, pay bills, etc. - because I can see most of the house from my vantage point and make sure Thing One and Thing Two aren't getting into too much trouble.

However, I've been known to read in bed, at the kitchen table, in the bath, in the car, at the park, at the coffee shop, and sitting in the hallway outside my university classrooms while waiting for my professors to arrive.  The only place I have not managed to read is while sitting on my woefully underused exercise machine and only because I need both hands to use it.  As soon as I figure out how to compensate for that, guess what I'll be doing...

  1. Just hopping your blog and your "curl up and read" spots.

  2. Hi, visiting you on the hop!

    I had to laugh - I find that the only way I can do the cross-trainer at the gym and get some cardio in is to read at the same time! I have to use the right kind of book - something trade sized with a soft spine that won't crack, or a not-too-fat hardcover - that I can prop up. I find I can't do it otherwise; I get so bored! You need a machine that has a kind of stand that will hold the pages for you, too.

  3. I usually end up watching TV or listening to music when I exercise. I hate doing it, so I have to find an almost Zen headspace to get through it. One of these days I'll get a treadmill or a machine with one of those stands so I can read. It's good to have goals, right?

    Thanks for hopping by!
