FIR ’10 – Reading Question #6

As part of the Fall Into Reading Challenge 2010, Callapider Days has reading questions for us to answer, if we so wish, every week. The 6th question is:

Where do you love to read? Note: I don’t mean where do you actually do most of your reading, because that might be the carpool line, the work cafeteria, or even the bathroom (if you have to escape from a few small children in order to read a chapter of your book). I mean, what are a few of the places where you LOVE to read?

My answer:
I think that, in a way, the places that I actually do most of my reading are also the places that I love to read!

When I worked and took the bus to work daily, I had about 1 hour of bus to do to and from work, and so I read, and read, and read. I love reading on the bus, and looked forward to those moments in my day – I remember looking at the clock for the last hour or so of work, and getting giddy and excited because I could sink into my very good current novel soon. 😀  If the book was particularly VERY good, I would even start my reading standing up at the bus stop! (thought that’s not quite my favourite reading spot… It would get uncomfortable to read standing up after a while :P)

These days, I do a lot of nursing reading. Miss C still nurses 8-10 times a day, and although she doesn’t quite take as long to gather her sustenance, it’s still a nice break. Of course I can’t read at every feeding – if my oldest is up and about, I have to do some entertaining and interacting at the same time. Although I’ve been known to casually glance at my book if she happens to be watching a show at that moment, or happily involved in her own toys… tee hee. I like to tell myself it’s setting a good example LOL

My favourite time is when Miss A is down for her afternoon nap, and I nurse Miss C to sleep. I will then let her sleep in my arms, while I read the afternoon away. Lovely! (often though I end up falling asleep too… sleep deprivation will do that, interfere with your reading like that 😦 )

I love, love, love to read a good book and a nice warm {hot} bath. Especially when the door is lock. Ha!

Finally, I CANNOT go to bed without reading. My mind would simply race too much, and I end up not sleeping – I’m very prone to insomnia. Even if it’s 2 am and I finally got both kids settled for the night (when they decide to tag-team wake up…), I have to read a bit before closing the light. Usually I will read until I start falling asleep on the book, and then I’m assured of closing the light, my eyes, and being immediately asleep. However, if the book is TOO good… oops!
