The quick answer to that question would be; anywhere but there’s specific places I like to settle down comfortably with my book and enjoy my time reading. Unless I’m comfortable, I find it hard to concentrate on my book and obviously I want to devote as much attention to the story as possible! So here are a couple of my favourite places I like to read!
Probably the most obvious choice, but I love curling up in bed with a good book, a cuppa and my dog laying on my feet. It’s one of those rare, perfect moments when you’re completely content with what’s going on. I rarely read in bed at night anymore, which is a shame but whatever time of day, I always get a lot of reading done there because it’s my safe haven – it’s where I feel most comfortable and safe where nothing can get me in my little book bubble!
In the garden
This is probably my favourite ever place to read; nothing beats a gorgeous summers day in the garden with a good book; I have lost count of the amount of hours I’ve spent out there reading. Luckily, I live down a small street, mostly occupied by older people and my garden doesn’t back onto anything; so it’s quite secluded and private – which I love. We have a swinging hammock chair which is where I spend most of my summer days sitting, reading.
On a beach/by a pool
I’ve got lots of good memories going on holiday with my parents as a teenager and even then, I was a complete bookworm so never went on holiday without a book. I remember one particular holiday to Gran Caneria where I spent hours and hours working through Breaking Dawn (which, if you’ve read it, will know it isn’t a 10 minute read!) Reading in a gorgeous country, by a beach or a pool, is always so relaxing.
In a hotel / cottage etc.
Wherever I’m staying when I go on holiday, whether it’s a hotel or a cottage in the countryside or a chalet; I always take my book and always give myself time to read in accommodation. I like the feeling of being away from home, in a different place but still having the normality of settling down in bed or on the sofa to have a read; despite everything else going on around you.
