I was wondering if most people have a favorite place to read. I don't really have one, I just like to read no matter where I am.
I've often thought that a big bay window with a window seat would be the ideal place to read, but then I'd probably be too busy looking outside to get much reading done.
I know some people like to read in bed. I do at times. But I've found that if I'm really into a book, I keep reading way past my bedtime and I pay dearly for it in the morning so I try to limit the time I read in bed.
The reason for my wondering about favorite places to read is where I found myself reading yesterday.
See the past week or so I haven't been able to read as much as I wanted to, so I'm behind on some of my reading. This week I've finally got a chance to start reading.
I tend to take the book I'm reading with me where ever I go so that way if I'm delayed, I'll have something to do. If I'm not currently reading anything I take my knitting or crocheting instead. I can't seem to sit and do nothing.
Anyway, this new book I'm reading is really good. The main character in it reminds me of several people I know (one for the physical appearance and another for the actions).
Yesterday I found myself wishing the red lights would hold longer and even hoping there was road work so I could read.
I was able to read a few pages waiting in line at the bank's drive thru (no way I was going inside when I could sit and read). And usually when you leave the stores you have to wait in long, long lines to get out into the highway....not yesterday. Everywhere I went, traffic moved way too fast.
I didn't take any chances by not paying attention to the road or my driving (I don't try to drive and read or text). It was just those moments that I usually have when driving that make me crazy for waiting, didn't yesterday because I had something interesting to do while I waited.
I'm taking the book with me again today.
Oh, the book is "Pretty Is As Pretty Dies" by Elizabeth Spann Craig. I love Myrtle ... I think I hear her calling me now. Gotta go read. Have a favorite place to read, let me know.
