I have decided to continue with my Thursday posting of books, author spotlights, etc. but I am now going to add a Monday posting entitled Monday’s Musings where I will post on whatever I feel like. This week I have been thinking about favorite places to read. A couple of years ago my husband gave me a hammock for Mother’s Day (no, I am not a mother but I have him convinced that I deserve a gift every Mother’s Day because of the labor I will someday go through). My favorite place to read is in the sun, on the hammock, with a soft pillow and a cool soda beside me. My other favorite place is snuggled under the covers in my bed with my kitty curled up next to me.
My husband will tell you that I read everywhere: the futon, the kitchen table while eating lunch, the car (but not while driving), and obviously the yard. I am the oldest of five children and while I was growing up we had numerous cousins and neighbors live with us. I spent the first seventeen years of my sister Jocee’s life sharing a room with her. Needless to say it was hard, at times, to find a place to read without being bothered by someone, so growing up one of my favorite places to read was in the bathroom. I would lock myself in there for hours at a time because I knew I wouldn’t be bothered while I was in there. Of course, once Jocee realized what I was up to in there she took great pleasure on pounding on the door until I got out, not because she wanted to use it but because I was hiding in there. (You know how siblings are, I did my fair share of pestering her in retaliation.)
Where do you like to read?
