Where do you read?

Sunday, March 14, 2010

The truth is, I read, whenever I get the chance, no matter where I am. I can read in public, like in the book store, the library, the park, in the car, etc. I have to admit though, my two favorite places are where it allows me to be alone for a while, lost in whatever the book is.

I have to say, without a doubt, that my favorite place to read is in my bed room.
I love this place! It's nothing too big, or grand, but to me, it's just perfect! It's cozy, and has everything I need -- a lamp, my closet, a dresser, a study table, my books & my bookshelves, and a bed. What else can I ask for?
I will spare you though, and not show any pictures, but I will show you another one of my favorite reading spaces.
This is actually my mom's reading nook, but I go here too, whenever I get the chance. But as much as I would like to stay here more often, I actually don't, because the TV in the living room is usually on, and I tend to get distracted. But I love this place all the same. The reading lamp is just perfect, and the couch is comfortable -- and quirky looking, yes?
All that's left for me to do is curl up with the current read on my hands, and my usual English Breakfast tea sitting on the coffee table right in front of it.

How about you, where do you read? Where are your favorite reading spaces? Do tell :)


  1. great post! I'm the same way, I read whenever and wherever I get a chance! My favorite spot is probably my bed ha because I can lie down and curl up in blankets: perfection. I also like going to school and going to the tenth floor of the library and curling up with my book, It's quiet and no one bugs me.

  2. great post! my fav reading spots are my bedroom and the living room. I love curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.
    your mom has a nice reading spot! cute couch :)

  3. I can read just about anywhere, including the car, and am the person you trip over at the library or in the bookstore, but my favorite place to read is my old, "comfy chair." It's almost as great as your mom's couch!

  4. Ooh, I love you and your mom's reading nook! It looks cozy.

    I also read everywhere I can, but mostly like reading in my room, or in the corner of my couch.

  5. Well, lately I've been reading mainly in the car. I like reading in bed, at the breakfast table or on the couch--- but anywhere will do.

  6. That looks like the perfect reading spot. Cute chair too.

  7. @Sarah: That is pretty much my main reason why my bed in my room is my favorite place. It's the most comfortable spot/position to read, isn't it? And I also just love privacy when I read too, where it's really just me and the book.

    @naida: Thank you! I love tea, haha. This is super random, what is your favorite kind? :)

    @ds: Thanks, I'd love to see your couch :) I am also actually that person at bookstores and libraries people trip over. (and glare at when that happens) LOL

    @StephtheBookworm: Thank you! My mom actually kicks me out of that couch most of the time -_- haha.

    @Cozy Book Nook: I actually notice nowadays I've been doing a lot of reading in the car; whenever I wait till I start a class or a work, or something. It's a pretty convenient way to kill time.

    @Lauren: Thank you so much! :)

  8. Your mom's reading nook looks funky & cozy. I can see why you'd like it, sans TV noise.

    My usual spot for reading is in bed. My favorite spot is on a sandy ocean beach, and my second favorite is stretched out on the couch. But we live in Denver (no ocean), and my husband is often on the couch with the TV on. So, bed it is.

  9. @Cara Lopez Lee: How I'd love to read at the beach! What you just said made me wish for vacations that are impossible to have anytime soon, due to the unpredictable weather of San Francisco. Oh well, it's nice to dream about it for now.
