My favourite places to read

Hello again, fellow bookworms!!

I thought it would be fun to talk about my favourite places to read and why I love them!

1. My bed

I guess this one is fairly obvious. It’s comfy and cosy and I love to read until I fall asleep. When I’m working, I don’t have as much time as I’d like to read, so I like to go to bed maybe an hour before I plan to sleep and curl up with a book. Even better if it’s raining because I sleep in an attic and I love hearing the rain on the roof.

2. The living room

I don’t know what other people call this, my family just refer to it as “the room” but other people say “living room”, “sitting room” or “lounge”…but you know where I mean. My house isn’t always the most peaceful, but after eating in the evening, I like to curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a blanket and read. This is improved by the presence of my dogs asleep on my knee/feet.

3. The car

If you have read one of my previous posts (the one about having no patience with people who say that they don’t have time to read), you may have assumed that I’d have the bus included somewhere in this list. But now I’ve left college, my daily bus rides aren’t as long and due to my panicking about missing my stop, I daren’t read on the bus anymore. But I love reading in the car. Long journeys are a great way to catch up on your reading (providing someone else is driving, obviously) and, thankfully, reading in the car doesn’t make me feel sick as I know it does to some of my friends.

4. The bath

Last on my list is the bath. I don’t often have the time, but one of my favourite things to do is run a bubble bath (or use a bath bomb) and just lie there, reading. Face masks are a bonus, although I tend to lose track of time and forget how long I’ve had it on for! Unfortunately, my family aren’t keen on me reading in the bath as it means no one else can use the bathroom!

Do we share any of the same favourite places to read? Leave me a comment!

One thought on “My favourite places to read

  1. I love reading in my bed, but I have the annoying tendency of always falling asleep after two or three chapters. Even when I’m wide awake! It’s freaky sometimes!
    So I’d rather read on the couch or – even better – my especially begged-for armchair! [It’s a really old thing that doesn’t fit with the rest of our furniture at all, so I had some serious begging to do with my boyfriend before I was able to get it, haha.]
    I wish I could read in the car, but it makes me nauseous every time I try.. So that’s a no-no. Besides, I’m the one driving almost every time, so it isn’t a good option anyway, ha.

    And I don’t have a bath.
    God, I miss my bath.
    And the bubbles.
    Bathbombs!
