Blogging A to Z Day 16: Preferred Place to Read

Welcome aboard, train wreck.

Do you have a favorite spot to read? Maybe it’s in your backyard under a tree, or at the beach while listening to the waves crash. For me, it’s on my couch with a cup of tea and my cat or dog by me.

I love reading, but there are a lot of places that I would rather not read. For example, the dentist’s office is one of those places. I don’t enjoy getting poked in the mouth with metal tools, so it’s not the best place for me to be reading a book. The DMV is another place where I don’t like to read because it’s always so crowded and noisy. My couch, on the other hand, is my favorite place to read because it’s comfortable and quiet.

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen.

This is the age old question, isn’t it? Where’s the best place to read? Some people might say in a quiet, isolated place with no interruptions. Others might say you should read where the action is. But I think I’ve found the perfect place to read – my couch. It has all the benefits of both places mentioned above, and it’s especially great when I don’t have time for either! Plus, there’s something about reading on a couch that just makes me feel cozy and comfortable. Has anyone else ever felt that way? Let me know in the comments!

I used to be a big reader. I’m talking stacks of books high kind of reader. But then I had kids and my reading time went the way of my free time – out the window. Now, if I’m lucky, I might squeeze in a chapter or two before bed. But mostly I’m too exhausted from chasing after little ones all day to do anything but pass out. So when my book club decided to start meeting online, I was pretty excited. Reading has always been my favorite form of escape, and now I could do it from the comfort of my own couch!

There’s something special about reading in my favorite spot on the couch. It’s like the world outside fades away and I can just focus on the book in my hands. I can curl up under a blanket with a cup of tea, or stretch out and prop myself up with a pillow. And if I get really engrossed in what I’m reading, I might even forget to eat lunch and dinner. But that’s ok. The kids remind me they’re hungry. Whether it’s reading the latest bestseller or rediscovering an old classic, there’s nothing quite like getting lost in a good book.

When it comes to reading, I have very specific preferences. I like to be cozy. My couch is big and soft, and it begs to be curled up on with a book. I often have a blanket handy, in case I get chilly. And if I’m really in the reading mood, I’ll light a candles to set the mood. My reading time is sacred to me, and I like to make sure that I’m as comfortable as possible. That’s why my couch is the perfect spot for me. It’s my own personal reading corner, and it’s where I escape to when I need a break from the world.

My reading habits have always been a bit erratic. I’ll go through phases where I’m reading constantly, and then I’ll go through long periods where I don’t pick up a book at all. But over the past year or so, I’ve found that my couch has become my constant reading spot. No matter how long I go without reading, I always end up back on my couch with a book in hand. I’m not sure what it is about my couch that makes it such a great reading spot, but it’s definitely become my favorite place to read.

I think part of the reason why my couch has become such a great reading spot is because it’s comfortable. It’s the perfect size for me to curl up.

I’m not alone in my love of reading on the couch; it’s a popular spot for readers all over the world. In fact, a study by the National Endowment for the Arts found that people are more likely to read books if they’re in comfortable surroundings. So next time you want to curl up with a good book, make sure you’re doing it in your favorite spot!

I think it’s safe to say that we all have a favorite place to read. For some people, it might be in a quiet spot outside under a tree. For others, it might be at their desk at work with the door closed so they can focus. Personally, my favorite place is definitely my couch. It’s big and comfy, and it’s in the perfect spot in my house where I can just kick back and relax. Plus, it’s close to my bookshelf so I can easily grab whatever book I want to read. I sometimes feel like my reading time is the only time I really get to relax, so I like to make sure I’m in a comfortable spot. Where is your go-to place for reading?

If anyone sees you reading on the couch and says you’re doing nothing, just tell them you’re practicing self care.
