Friday Favourites - Places to Read

There have been many discussions about whether people prefer to read an actual book or an e-reader. I like both and I like the variety of both. There's nothing cooler than the smell of a book, and being able to turn the pages is delicious, but I love the fact I can have a stack of books at my disposal all on one little device. Now I wouldn't be without either. I love seeing my bookshelf stuffed with books and I love having my kindle in the drawer beside my bed or in my bag.

The reason I am starting with an e-reader/book discussion is because depending on where I am, depends on what I like to read.

For example, if I'm lying in bed (one of my favourite places to read), I want my kindle. It's light, easy to hold and I love just being able to press one button and voila! I have a new page.

 However, if I'm anywhere with one of those delicious satellite chairs (we call them nixie chairs) that you just sink into and never, ever want to get out of, then I want a book. I want to hold it in my hand and turn the pages as I half-sit, half-lie in blissful comfort. Oh yeah - and did I mention the chair needs to be in a quiet room that is bright and sunny?

Where's your favourite place to read?
Do you need quiet or can you tune out noise?
Do you prefer snuggling under blankets or basking in the sunshine?

Ahhhh - just talking about it makes me want to hide away and read. Maybe if I tap my heels together and say, "There's no place like nixie." I'll transport myself there.


  1. I'm not sure I have a favorite place to read--anywhere I'm at works for me.

  2. I love to read in bed, and even though I read ebooks on my iPod Touch, I refer the real deal. It's just my bookshelf that doesn't. :D

    1. LOL :) I know what you mean! Book shelves are meant to be jam packed in my opinion. I love walking into a room with shelves of books. It's the coolest thing :)
