Location, Location, Location, Part 2

Booking Through Thursday


1. Where do you do most of your reading? Your favorite spot? (Show a picture, if you want to!)

(And yes, I understand that these might not be the same thing--your favorite spot could be the beach, but you do most of your reading at home . . . in which case, tell me about both!)

- I do most of my reading in my bedroom. At night it always a quiet time to just read in peace without too much noises. It help to speed read the books faster :) I even read in between TV commercial as well, when I'm watching my favorite TV shows too *grin*

My favorite spot though, is reading outside the porch when it is night outside and the air smelled with flowers fragrance. And it pretty much little peace and quit. I could sit out there for hours! But lately since all that stupid cold weather, it hasn't been that nice outside. But thanks gawd, it finally let the sun out and the weather seem nice since last weeks! :)

How about you? When do you do most of your reading? And what your favorite spot?


Don't forget to leave a link to your actual response in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

I agree with you that reading at night is peaceful and have less disturbances. I don't watch TV, even though I do keep abreast of what's being offered onscreen. With that, I have PLENTY of time devour my books... LOL.

My place is hot and humid, so reading outside is not doable... So I have a nice study room to do the deed, or I really like the washroom too when Nature calls (big business - I know it's disgusting, but hey... you asked) LOL

I also mentioned on my blog that I love reading at HOCA, my daily weekdays breakfast joint. It's getting a little busy there nowadays, so I might just find myself another spot.

Happy BTT, Julia!

Reading's pretty much my only past time at home. I don't have a TV, my PC's on the blink and the radio doesn't need me to pay attention to it. :D Even my brothers are getting into reading... even my romance novels! Haha.

The problem with reading outdoors, is you can't control the weather. :(

Marianne Arkins said...

I need to read, at least a little, right before bed or I don't get to sleep well.

Mine ishere. Happy booking!

Debi said...

Oh, that is too funny...I read during commercial breaks when I watch TV, too. Most people act like I'm crazy or something! Glad to know I'm not alone!

Your "favorite spot" sounds absolutely delightful!

Chris said...

I read during commercials too. I love outdoor reading as well.

Darla said...

My reading corner is the one spot in this house that I actually like. And it's mine, all mine! muhahahahaha....

Barbara said...

Your favorite spot sounds nice -- hopefully you'll be able to use it again soon!

I am saying hello for the first time today -- I just discovered this meme this morning.

Karen said...

I too like to read during commercials, except I usually get too involved in the book and forget to start watching the show again:-) Thank goodness for TiVo!

Jan said...

Your porch sounds wonderful. It makes me long for summer to get here! But reading in bed sounds good too.

Julia said...

Alice - Sometime reading outside is good thing, so it sad you can't experince that when it hot and humid out there

Kat - true, you can't control the weather, but when the opportunty strike then do take the time to read it outside. Your brother read? which authors? *grin*

Marianne - Me too, I need to read in order to get sleep. Without it, I'll be tossing and turning in bed if I try to sleep early.

Debi - reading in between commercial break is bless thing LOL

Chris - Then that mean we got something in common *grin*

Darla - LOL and I LOVE your reading corner. I need one of those LOL

Barbara - thanks for your comment. It does sound nice :) And welcome to the Booking Through Thursday meme world :)

Karen - that haven't happen to me yet, but I weren't want to miss anything from my shows. I wish I got Tivo *sigh*

Jan - thanks for your comment. I too, long for the summer to get here.

The older I get, the more I like to read in the quiet--no tv or radio in the background.

I admit I'm terrible when it comes to reading during commercial breaks. I inevitably get so involved with my book that I forget I'm watching tv!

Can I come sit on your porch and read? It sounds wonderful, Julia!

Rashenbo said...

I read in so many different places! The living room, the upstairs living room, the bed room... even my desk at work :)

Julia said...

Literary Feline - I like to read in quiet place too, but most often I would have TV on LOL...what can I say? I'm addicted to TV shows too ;) Sure, come sit with me on the porch and read. We'll have fun :)

Rashenbo - I think it great to be able to read anywhere, but I have my favorite spot too. So I just stick with favorite spot *grin* LOL

Thanks you both for stopping by! :)

Melody said...

Hi Julia, I'm back! *grins* Bet you missed me...probably not. LOLOL.

Oh yeah, I do know you read and watch TV at the same time...make full use of the time, which I think is not a bad thing!!! ;P

Happy BTT!

Julia said...

Yep, sure did miss ya *hug*! *grin*

It never too late to post your meme, Melody. Always happy to hear from you. :) And of course you already knew about my TV addiction, beside my books addiction that is LOL !
