The Best Places to Read

The Best Places to Read

I can read almost anywhere, but there are a few special places the are perfect (or almost perfect) to read in. Here are my favorite places to read:

  1. My bed. This is my ideal spot to read when the weather is anywhere below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I can burrow under the covers while I loose myself in a captivating story.
  2. The couch. In my house there’s a couch upstairs that is perfect for reading on. It seems to be the exact length for me to stretch out and read. The only downfall to it is that it is usually occupied by my brother, leaving me to retreat back to my bed.
  3. The library. The library in my town isn’t the quietest, but I still love to read there. It’s fun to sit on the chairs and ignore the world around me. The open atmosphere of the library is always welcoming to read in.
  4. My grandparents’ chair. Going to my grandparent’s house is always great because I can read in their chair. It’s one of those chairs that kind of resemble a basket or nest and is very fluffy. To add on the experience I can look out their giant window onto the pasture of cows that is below them.
  5. The car. This is a bit of an odd one because some people can’t read in the car. Of course, I don’t mean trying to drive and read at the same time (that would be stupid), but when someone else is in the car it is so relaxing to listen to music as we travel down the road.
  6. The morning. This last one is a time, not a place, but I feel like it deserves a spot on this list. I love to wake up an hour earlier than usual and read before anyone else in the house has gotten up. Reading in the morning always seems to wake me up and prepare me for a focused and productive day.

So where do you like to read? Can you relate to any on this list? I’d love too know!

Bookshelf Solution

Bookshelf Solution


If you’re anything like me you don’t have the money to buy a bookshelf and have books piling up everywhere. I have come up with a solution! All you have to do is stack books on a hard surface! That’s what I did above (please ignore the fact that not all of them are the best books, I get most of my books from the library) and it works great! Of course it does have some problems, I can’t make a second layer, it isn’t very professional, I have to put them in my closet (ha ha…), but it will work until I get a real bookshelf.
