Top Ten Tuesdays #353: Places to Read

Favorite Places to Read

Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

I’ve actually posted about this a few times on my blog because I love finding cozy spots to read and talking about them! I think it’s been changed a bit since this post (LOL UGH) so here’s my current updated list, featuring some ooold pics directly from Insta because I’m lazy.

On the couch or in bed with my pup

This is a more common place I read these days – curled up on the couch with my dog by my side. Lately though, most of my reading has been happening before or after work in my bed. I’ll read my Kindle in the dark before falling asleep or first thing in the morning. I couldn’t find a good picture of reading in bed so we’ll pretend this one covers both spots in my house.

By the lights of the Christmas tree

Reading during the Christmas season is my favorite because our room gets all cozy with the lights on our tree and on the wall. There’s nothing better than a cute holiday romance with hot chocolate on the couch with the lights on the tree in the background.

Outside on a blanket

I spend a lot of time reading outdoors (more on other places coming up). One of the most frequent ones is just on a blanket in my yard or in a park with the dog!

On my hammock

I bought the hammock in this photo last year or the year before and it got super moldy. I just ordered a new one and have yet to hang it up. I do love reading in a comfy seat outside for a change of scenery from the porch.

In my car with a view

I used to drive over to the land preserve near my office and read in my car during my lunch breaks. Now that I work from home 95% of the time, I don’t take breaks to read anywhere! I like reminiscing on these times with my goofy car reading pics though.

In a coffee shop

Yes this is a Starbucks and I prefer a hometown coffee shop, but I made due for this photo at the time. I usually get distracted with all of the people in there but hey, it’s nice to be around people (remember when that was possible?)

At the skate park

Chris skates anywhere really, so sometimes sitting on a blanket in the grass happens at our local elementary school while he skates in the parking lot. Sometimes we go to an actual skate park. Either way, I am frequently sitting outside while he skates and I read!

On my porch

This is honestly my favorite place to read when the weather is nice. I will sit out on the porch in the fall too, wrapped in a blanket, just to get outside. I love sitting out there with my book and a drink.

By the pool

Chris’s parents have a gorgeous pool that I love to read in and out of. I’ll sit on the patio under an umbrella, or walk around in the water with my Kindle above water. Great way to get some movement going while reading!

On the beach

I’m not a big fan of the beach in general but I do like laying under an umbrella and reading while I’m there. We found a cute beach or two near us when we lived in Maine and it was nice to lay out there.
