How do you read? Sitting in a chair? Laying on the couch or bed? With a TV or radio on? What about an iPod on while reading? Inside or out?

My fave - outside in my comfy folding camp chair.

And in bed before sleeping or napping.

No music.

Usually curled up in bed or in my big chair with music on in the background (most often the Spa channel on XM televsion). With a glass of tea or diet coke.

I liked to be stretched out on my bed or outside at night on my porch.

I'm usually stretched out in my chair with my ottoman. Sometimes I read between commercials with the tv muted but generally I go for silence or if I'm trying to learn something very low classical music.

Standing up. ;)Honestly, my back hates sitting positions. I sometimes walk around as well.

Reading standing up?

I have read while walking down the sidewalk from the bus stop to home because there was a part I just HAD to finish! When I was finishing The Agency by Ally O'Brien, I did that because I was at the end and I couldn't wait to get home to read the last 5 pages LOL

I'll read almost anywhere I get a chance. I read in bed. I also like to read when traveling..in the car, airplane. I also like to read sitting on the patio or on the beach.

Oh, I would love to be able to read in the car or on the plane - so much wasted time there. But I get horrible motion sickness, and reading seems to be a major way to set that off.

I can read almost anywhere, anyhow, too. I even "read" audiobooks while walking, and Michelle, they're great for car/plane travel.

Yes audiobooks are a great tool too and a lot of libraries carry them now. My son gets car sick too but he is the opposite, reading helps him.

Outside when the weather permits. Or, while in bed when everything is quiet, and I have at least 45 minutes to myself.

Sitting in a chair (any kind so it can be a couch or whatever) with no music or any other noise.

In bed, on a comfy chair, stretched out on a couch with lots of cushions, on a bus or train, in a cafe with a pot of tea on the side, on a bench in a garden on a nice day.

In the corner of my great room couch under a standing lamp. I also like a glass of tea or water at my side. Since it is winter I like to sit under a crocheted throw that my sister made for us. smile
