Booking Through Thursday - Location

This week's Booking Through Thursday question(s): What’s your favorite place to read? Do you have more than one? Can you read anywhere, or do you need things to be “just right?”

Here's my response and don't forget to check the comments on the BTT site for everyone else's.

I tend to read in bed. I know, you're not supposed to do that. It makes it hard to fall asleep. But it's just so comfortable. I don't just read in bed at night - I can read in bed at any time of day. Even first thing when I wake up.

The bed's my most common place to read, but I can read anywhere. I read on the couch with the TV on; in a car on a roadtrip (except when I'm driving - then it's audiobooks); on the top of a mountain or secluded beach. If I want to read then nothing distracts me.

However, often when I try to read I am easily distracted. That's a sign that the book hasn't really captured me (it's the book's fault, not mine). When that happens I let it happen - I read for fun now, so I don't force myself to read. I read because I want the story to distract me from everything else in my life. If that happens, I'll keep reading anywhere.


  1. I read in bed, too, but I have to be careful because I have a tendency to fall asleep. :)

    Here's mine: Location, location, location!

  2. I am another one that reads anywhere and everywhere. I've been known to read at redlights. Having books on my phone makes it easier than ever to do that! I love the time we live in. haha

  3. I read anywhere - but I think the bed is my favorite spot too.
