I know that everyone who reads does it a little differently. I’m sure we all have that amazing spot where we get a lot done. So it’s got me wondering, do we share similarities in our hangouts or are we completely different?
I have three places where I like to read the most actually, and sometimes I switch between them throughout the day. The first is across our couch, so that I can put my legs up and relax. Unfortunately the armrest for my back is a bit uncomfortable after a while, even with a pillow. I also tend to sometimes read at the desk while I do blogging stuff, but not as often since I get massively distracted by Twitter. My favourite spot is the bed, where I’ve arranged the pillows so I’m either propped up, or I can lie down to read. And I get great sunlight during the day!
I also tend to read on the bus a lot too, especially since my old job used to take me an hour to get there. But when I start reading in public, that’s when I have to try and drown out the sounds of the city. For the most part I’m pretty good at it, unless there’s screaming children or other obnoxious people being really loud. At home there isn’t a whole lot of noise to contend with, my family doesn’t usually talk while I’m reading, and if they do at least I can pick up easily where I left off.
So now I ask you, where is your favourite spot(s) to read? Do you find it hard to read with background noise or can you drown it all out?
