Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading time…
Do you have a set reading time (before bed, perhaps)? Do you read more at night or during the day? Is there a day of the week, perhaps, that you set aside to catch up on reading?
I feel really lucky in that I get to read just about whenever I want. I'm not working right now and have lots of free time to read. My favorite places to read are my loft which has a huge bookcase, comfy chair and great light and quiet. I tend to only read there in the evenings for some reason.
During the day in warmer weather while I am gardening, going for walks, cleaning or just relaxing on the deck (in summer) I like to listen to audio books a lot on my IPOD. My DIL had me figured out yesterday while watching my son pitch at his ball game. She saw the ear buds and said, "Is that an audio book"? I just smiled, guess everyone in the family knows me too well. I also love to listen to audio books on the IPOD in bed before falling asleep. It doesn't keep my husband awake and it has a sleep timer as well (works out perfectly). I borrow a lot of audio books from the library and copy on to the IPOD for free.
In winter, I enjoy sitting by a sunny window by day while reading, always wrapped in a cozy comforter or sitting by the gas fireplace whenever possible.
I usually have (3) books going at one time, an audio book in the car, a different audio book on the IPOD, and a print book as well. I also have spare books in my trunk, so I never an without a book when I have to wait in the car etc.
What say you about your reading preferences?
