Hooray! It’s Tuesday!
After skipping last weeks option, which is secondary characters that deserved more love (I swear I sat down to do it and my mind just went blank), I figured it was time to get back to it with this weeks list.
A list of favorite places to read.
But what is the TTT, you may ask?
“Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”
On to the list!
1.My Comfy Couch.
This is my favorite spot in the whole house. I can sit and watch TV, read, embroider, read, cuddle with my cat, read. I do an awful lot of reading in this spot. Also, I put my TBR cart right next to it so if I need a book I can just reach over and grab one.
I traveled a lot more pre-Covid, and once I got my vaccine I’ve travelled quite a bit since then. But the airplane has always been one of my favorite places to read. Mostly because reading on a plane gets my undivided attention. It also makes flying a little more bareable.
So this is a weird one. And pre-pandemic I did this a lot. I would end up in a long line at the grocery store or somewhere, and be bored. I started having a book on my kindle app just for this purpose. I would only get a few pages in at a time, so some may say this one is weird, but it works for me.
4. On the Beach
Now, anyone who has actually met me knows that I dislike the beach, on account of how my fair skins burns like a lobster in a pot in 5 minutes flat. The only thing that makes the beach bearable, besides sunscreen and a jaunty hat, is a good book. Okay, so maybe this isn’t a favorite place, but it’s a place where you can always find me with a book. Always.
5. In A Hotel Room
Trips are often hectic times with lots of stuff planned to do, but when you get back to your hotel, winding down is important after such a busy day. That’s when I pull out the Kindle and read for a little while. Kindles are great for trips, aren’t they?
Well, this had to come up eventually, didn’t it? I mean, we knew it was going to happen. Reading in bed is my way to relax my brain after the long day of reading I’ve been doing. I can’t sleep if I haven’t read something whilst tucked in.
7. In the Salon Chair
I dye my hair lots of fun colors. It’s been purple since December and that’s probably going to change soon. But a great way to pass the time while my color is processing is by reading. This goes back to having a book on my phone at all times. It really helps and I highly recommend it.
8. In the Chair at My Mother’s House
Sorry folks, no picture of this one, as I am not currently in Florida to get one. But I will tell you, this recliner is so comfy. And it’s got a good sized table beside it for snacks and beverages. Always a plus.
9. The Lanai at My In Laws House
I’m sorry, but look at that view. That’s the view from my In-Laws back patio. I will forever love taking a book out there. They have such cozy chairs too.
10. Pretty Much Anywhere I Am
Is this one a cop out? No, I don’t think so. I’m happy to read anywhere. In the car going somewhere, at someone else’s house, on the moon…with Steve. If you get that last one, we can be friends. In short, I’m happy to plop down anywhere there is space for some book reading. Aren’t you?
Where do you like to read most?
