If you could design your own ideal reading place, how would it look? Where would it be? Inside or out? Front porch or back? Sofa, chair or bed? If a chair, what kind? If a sofa, what kind? Does it matter? Yeah, it does to me. When you get to a certrain age, your bones do protest very much.
I tend to read at the kitchen table (see post below), though occasionally because I have a slobby gene, this results in a spattered book and more laundry for me. My second reading place is the white wicker sofa-chair you see above in my living room. Occasionally I read in bed or on the porch. But wherever I read, my dog Rocky is nearby, usually snoring softly. If you've never heard a chihuahua snore, you don't know what cute is. I like 'cute'. It is not distracting at all.
