A Place to Read

Having just moved, I find myself in a quandary as to where will be the most comfortable place to read. Of course, not everything is unpacked nor all the furniture in its place; however, that doesn’t preclude me from wishing to get comfortable with the next book from my “to be read” shelf.

I could always go outside and lay in the sun, but I have found over the years this is not a good idea. In addition to the obvious risks, I discovered I’m one of those people who can sit still for long periods of time. Yes, I’m a portrait artist’s dream. The only problem with this ability to remain motionless is it usually results in a very serious sunburn. It is one thing to get a burn while being active. It is a completely different experience to do so while remaining perfectly still!

So, where will my comfort area for curling up with a good book be? I don’t know, but I’m open for suggestions. Where is your favorite place to read? Do you have a comfy chair or is a lounge chair by the pool more your style? Let me know :-)



  1. Alexis, I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one that can sit for hours perfectly still while reading a book! I also don't need music, but I've found the best place for me is H2O beach. I sit in a lounge chair and have the waves as background sound. Cool breeze, under the palm trees (ie.shade) I can read for hours!

  2. Wow, Bonnie! That sounds like a perfect spot! I imagine anyone could read in such an amazing place. I might just have to try it sometime :-)
