[Coffee Shop Talks] When & Where Do You Read?




Two years ago my answer to this would have been whenever and wherever. I was easily devouring 3 books a week. Not so much anymore. Now most of my reading is done in bed at night after the kids go to sleep. Other than that, I try to read a few times throughout the day when I have a little quiet time available. There really isn't much of a routine involved.


These are the places where I read when I'm at home - 
In the bed, at my computer, or stretching out on the floor in the living room where I'm always joined by Jean.


 



During the summer we spend the majority of our time at my grandparent's house. It has been this way ever since I moved out as a teenager. I love my old home, I love spending time with the lovely people who raised me, and I love sitting by the pool watching the kids play. There are also plenty of great places to read.

Some of my favorite places are on the porch swing (image of the beautiful view included) & by the pool.

I love the porch swing! If I had one like that I would definitely curl up there! And isn't Jean a little sweetie too!

Thanks, Traci! I have another cat too, but Jean is always the one that lays in the floor with me. She's my baby =)

That porch swing looks amazing! I actually really prefer reclining when I read so sitting at cafes and outdoors to read is not super comfy for me. I prefer my couch or bed or laying on the beach (when possible).

If I could lay down or recline on that swing, I would end up sleeping instead of reading ;-) Laying on the beach to read sounds fantastic.

I tend to read in my second bedroom where I have a recliner and a reading lamp. I can also be found reading in bed if it is early enough in the morning. I sometimes read on the go at random places if I have a book with me but I don't often carry around books for fun these days but since I'm finally graduating in a week I hope to read more!

That porch swing!!! Wish I had a house, I'd put one out on the porch :) I read on the couch or in bed.

Oooh..I love the porch swing. I wish I have something like that. haha! :)
I usually read in bed, too. These days, I also try to catch up on my reading in the office between breaks. It's pretty quiet so it works. ^__^

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. I really appreciate it! :)

Ok what the heck - can I come vacation at your house? I promise I'm a good guest! Well only if you cook for me that is.

I know what you mean I still read everywhere I can but a lot of it is done in my office chair or in bed these days.

I particularly fond of the porch swing - seems a prime reading location! :) I read on the sofa in front of the fire during the winter months. My library chair or outdoors during warmer weather.
