This week’s question on Mini Book Expo is Where do you read?
I read everywhere. In the office, on the bus, in my bed, on the lawn, in a plane, on a chair, I will read it anywhere. My grandmother used to give me grief for reading at the breakfast table, so instead of reading my book I’d read the cereal boxes. She wasn’t impressed by my resourcefulness.
My favourite place to read non-fiction is on the road. I travel regularly but rarely drive (I hear some of you breathing a sigh of relief.) I really enjoy cracking open a business book and reading for hours on the train or plane or bus. No distractions and no interruptions, I find it lets me really dig into the content in a way that I can’t anywhere else.
Fiction is another thing. My favourite spot to read fiction is curled up in bed! I like to be beside a big open window with light streaming in where I can read for hours or drift in and out of the book letting it inspire my dreams.
Sometimes I even continue the story in my dreams which can be a problem when trying to figure out where I left off reading.
