Yep, that’s what I want to know today. Do you read sitting in a chair? While in bed? Soaking in the tub?
I was thinking about this last night as I was turning the pages in the bathtub. I don’t read as often in the tub anymore, but sometimes a page-turner will insist I not ignore it. Usually, I read right before bed, in bed. I have a handy-dandy little nightlight that clips to the bedframe and I can twist it to shine on the pages. I will read about half an hour to forty-five minutes. Yes, it takes me a loooong time to read a book. And generally I have 3 or 4 books going at a time, a couple fiction, at least one non-fiction.
Now, I know some of you out there can read a book a day. That fascinates me! Are you a speed reader? Or do you just have the time to do that? Or are some like me, and it takes forever to read a whole book? Do you steal a half hour here or there, or do you find long periods of uninterrupted reading time? Or maybe you snatch five minutes while stirring the spaghetti?
What about place? Chairs, couches, hammocks under the sun, the middle of the kid’s playroom while they’re battling it out with nerf sabers and sound effects? Where’s your favorite place to read?
And what form do you read? A paperback? Do you crease the spine (please say no, please say no). A hardback? Do you slip off the dust cover (like I do) before reading the hardcovers to keep it pristine? Or maybe you have an electronic book reader? I use my Kindle about 30% of the time, the rest of the time it’s divided between paperbacks and hardcovers (sans dust jacket).
And lastly, what genres are your favs to read? Romance here! But I like a mix, so fantasy, fiction and non-fiction as figure in.
Let’s talk about how we read today! This should be fun!
