I read everyday at lunch, everynight in bed and in the car on long trips.

I mainly read at home on my sofa, but if I have errands to run or an appt. to go to, and know I'm going to have to sit and wait for a length of time, I always take a book with me.

I personally can't read in a car either; it makes me sick to end all things. I also don't like reading or writing for that matter inside my house. My thing is this, if reading and writing is to be an escape shouldn't help the cause by getting outside? OR am I alone on that one?


--------------------
I am currently working on and doing research for the writing of a fictional novel in which the country being invaded is a celtic one. Any suggestions on content or research would be welcome.

Guess I could read on the patio would have to get my long underware on my parka and gloves would be kind of hard to turn the pages-- unsure.gif laugh.gif
The weather has been chilly here..
I read before I go to bed-if I am not to tired..

I like to read in the mornings, after my second cup of java... but the trouble is, I get all engrossed in the book & before I know it its noon and I've not done a bit of housework!
(I swear once I was doing some serious Bible study & began about 9 am, and the next time I looked at the clock it was 2 PM!)
And of course I have to come here & see my friends & chat a bit, and then the afternoon is gone and the laundry is suffering from neglect....

Oh well, at least I've got my priorities right: books and Celtic Radio!

Sporadically, and anywhere I can manage it! laugh.gif rolleyes.gif

I used to be able to read a page (or half-page) while waiting to pick our girls up from school, but now that Summer's here that option is no longer available. Sometimes, usually late afternoon, I find some time free from running around, housework, etc. and head outside to sit in the shade and get some reading in. Trouble is, it's hard to ignore the garden that's calling me, or our dog who wants to play, or the girls coming out to see what I'm doing, or...........I used to be able to tune everything else out while reading, but not now. I do love to read, honestly, and will do so as often as possible. I've been known to tell everyone I need time to just *READ*, and then they all know they'd better leave Mom alone for a while! angel_not.gif

I'm reading whenever I get the chance to sit down for a few minutes...except of the time I'm spending online, of course. I'm addicted, I frankly admit it and I'm using any chance to stick my nose between the pages. tongue.gif

I like to read whenever I get the chance. I often read just for the enjoyment of it but when I am really stressed, I read to take my mind off what is bothering me. I also like to read in the tub. At one time, that was the only place where I wouldn't get interrupted... rolleyes.gif I tend to tune everything out while I am reading, which is very annoying to my hubby.About the only place I don't read is in any moving vehicle because, unless I take motion sickness pills, reading is not an option. tongue.gif

I love to read just about anywhere, with the exception of the car...unless its something quick and important! Work, coffee shops, in the bed before I fall to sleep, and in the bathroom.

As a bookaholic, I've even perfected a method in which I can read whilst knitting. I'm nearly as bad with my knitting as I am with my reading so combining the two was simply blissful. tongue.gif I can even knit in the theatre after the lights go out if it's a simple pattern but I've yet to figure out how to read under those circumstances. So, pretty much I stick to reading in the car, but not while driving (I can, however, knit at long redlights or heavy traffic when driving) and in the evenings when my significant other is writing. Fortunately, he reads as much as I do, so he doesn't complain about my reading.

I tend to read in blocks. Sometimes I read everywhere and never leave the house without a book no matter whether I'm going to classes or to the doctor. Then there are times I don't read at all.
I found out I am able to read in the car, the train, the bus, whatever. What I can't to is facing the direction I come from, but hey, I don't have to. *g*
Usually I read historical or fantasy books. Anthough I tend to read a lot historical lately. (Trying to make my way through Marion Zimmer Bradleys Avalon books for quite some time... *sigh*)
I try to prevent myself from reading outside though, because I can't read when it's sunny, I usually get a headache when I try.
And I'd never try to read while taking a bath. Books are trasures to me. I'd never forgive myself damaging one...
My favourite place to read is my bed though. I used to sleep one hour less just to have one hour to read some time after starting studying...
