Yesterday I went down to the boardwalk along the beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta and saw this lady kicking back with her paperback in the only shady area there was for blocks just reading away. I almost interrupted her to point out that a loaded coconut tree wasn't the best spot but she had this don't even try to bother me vibe about her. I figured she either already knew or was so engrossed in her novel she did't care what she had to do in order to get her reading fix satisfied. Hopefully it wasn't that last thing she did yesterday...ouch!
Seeing her brought to mind a couple questions though. First, just how far would we go in order to grab a minute to read just one more chapter, page...paragraph and second where do readers like to read most?
I'll go first! :)
I've gone as far as breaking out my Kindle during a wedding, sitting in the Walmart parking lot an hour longer than what shopping took me (I've also done this for my writing) and as shameful as this sounds I must admit I've also played sick and left the kiddos to the hubster for two whole days just to finish a series I couldn't put down.
As for question number two...here's a couple of samples of my dream reading nook:
This nook would be more for the family and when I'm waiting for dinner to cook. Could double as a writing nook for when sitting at the computer becomes tiresome.
And if I were to ever do this in my house I'd never get anything done!
I still want one though!
