#SixforSunday is created by Steph from A Little But a Lot.
The theme for this week is favourite places to read. The short answer to this would be anywhere and everywhere!
Check out some of my previous weeks here:
I know that lots of people like to read in bed or in the bath but I’m not a massive fan of either – the bath because I have to keep a hand dry and am paranoid about getting my book wet! I read in bed more often now that I have an amazing v-shaped pillow but I still find it more comfortable to read sitting up or when my head is supported.
My favourite places to read are:
Curled up inside when it is raining outside.
I know that this is ridiculously specific, but I grew up in a small house near the sea where you could hear the rain on the roof. I have always loved being cuddled up in the warmth, listening to the sea and rain outside.
At the beach.
Once again, growing up near the sea I love the sound of the waves and I adore spending time on the beach, usually with a windbreak and some snacks!
In a window seat.
I don’t have window seats where I currently live, but I have always loved them. My sister has brilliant window seats with cushions and curtains, as well as a library in her house = life goals!
In the garden.
You can probably see a bit of a theme here. I love the outdoors and particularly like architecture that blurs the boundaries between outside and inside (e.g. Japanese traditional houses or Italian palazzi). I enjoy gardening to relax and love being able to sit in a patch of sunshine, surrounded by greenery. (When living in Japan I loved a teahouse near me with a massive bamboo garden…practically lived on their veranda at one point!)
On the sofa.
We have an l-shaped sofa which lets you read in every variation of position. I always keep some cosy blankets and cushions nearby, plus a hard surface to stand the tea on. This is probably where I do most of my reading at the moment!
In the library.
I have probably spent years of my life in the library if you add up the number of hours I have sent browsing, reading, studying and shelving (when I worked as a librarian). I visit my local library at least once a week and never leave with empty arms!
Where is your favourite place to read?
Do you have any odd habits while you’re reading?
Thanks for reading!
