This post is in some ways a no-brainer as I love to read pretty much anywhere. After a bit of thought though I came up with my five favourite places to delve into a book. Here goes...
1) Snuggled up on a chair
I think this is my favourite way to read. Conventional and predictable but totally relaxing, I love to settle down with a book after a busy day. I wrap myself in a fluffy blanket and get transported to a faraway place through the pages of a book. This is especially perfect on a dark night with rain hammering against the window-it feels indulgent and safe. Even better with a bar of Dairy Milk.
2) On a train
I love reading on the move. There is something magical about it, something that makes me think of a black and white film-the world whizzing past outside the window, another world whizzing around my mind. It is a real pleasure to be whisked away in every sense.
3) In Bed
A wonderful way to unwind. I either plump up the pillows behind me and lay back or else lie flat on my tummy with the book resting on my pillow. It is rare a day goes by when I don't read in bed.
4) On the loo
This isn't exactly one of my favourite places to read, but I do value the peace and quiet the bathroom brings. When my son is driving me crackers I will retreat there and read a few pages to unwind, solace from five minutes alone with a book in the smallest room.
5) In the park
I love finding a shaded spot on a sunny day, pulling my knees in towards me and reading. Hearing the wind rustle the leaves on the trees, the gentle hubbub of people walking dogs or pushing buggies, life going on around me as I am sucked into a page-turner, only semi-aware of everyday life.
I would love to hear from any blog readers about where they most like to read. Feel free to comment below or tweet me @bookswithbunny.
