    I read anywhere really, as long as I’m reasonably comfortable and have good light. Sitting in bed, in the recliner, on the verandah, or at my desk.

    I mostly read in my reading room. But sometimes I read in bed too.

    Bed is best these days, but basically anywhere will do 🙂

    I read mostly in bed before sleeping. I sometimes read in the garden if Sun obliges.

    I’ll read wherever I happen to be when I pick up a book.

    My favorite place to read is on a lounge chair on our lanai. But I tend to also read, when I can’t put a book down, in the car while idling at a red light.

    Be careful, Phoebe! My father got a ticket for DWR doing that very thing! (That’s Driving While Reading.)
    I have a sofa with four particular pillows that ease my back and promote serious reading.
    Don’t enter me for *Swamplandia*, please Jill.

    I think it depends on the time of year. In the fall and spring I like to lay in our hammock, but I get distracted watching the birds, in the summer I float in the pool, and in the winter I’m curled up on the couch.
    I can’t read in bed because I fall asleep.

    On the couch, in bed at night, or in the garden if it is not too hot or cold.

    Everywhere and anywhere. Even waiting for an elevator is a good place to read a paragraph or two.

    My favorite place to read is in bed with plenty of pillows because at least one of the cats will curl up on my lap or beside me. I also like to sit outside on a sunny day that’s not too hot.

    Easy. Sofa during the daytime, or bed at night. But nowadays, in bed I only use my iPad as I know it will switch off automatically when I fall asleep!!!!!!!!! Don’t have to worry about putting off the lights!!!,
