Fall Into Reading: Questions (4)

Callapidder Days is currently hosting the Fall Into Reading Challenge.  It is a self-set challenge in that each participant sets a goal for his/herself of the number of books to read during the fall season (Sept. 22-Dec. 20).  Then the participants post about the novels and progress as much or little as they want with a wrap-up post at the end.  I have set a goal to read 50 books this fall.  You can read the full list here.  Callapidder Days also hosts a weekly question about Fall Into Reading, as another way for us to connect and such.

This week's question:
Where do you love to read? Note: I don’t mean where do you actually do most of your reading, because that might be the carpool line, the work cafeteria, or even the bathroom (if you have to escape from a few small children in order to read a chapter of your book). I mean, what are a few of the places where you LOVE to read?

I have to say that I have a couple of places that I love to read, sadly few of them are in my regular reading spots.  I'm trying to resolve that, as I am making an effort to sit in one of them now while I work on my blog and read my books.
1) Oceanside in Oregon.  My family used to go to the Oregon coast every other year to spend time with extended family.  We would rent this same house that had bay windows with ledge-couches so you could sit and read while watching the ocean (and not have to worry about sand or water or etc.).  It was so perfect.  I find myself missing it at times.
2) My patio furniture.  Notice I didn't say my patio - as my patio furniture is residing in my room right now due to lack of house furniture.  But it is super comfy and was a present from my parents so it has a special place in my heart.  It's the perfect place to snuggle and read.
3) A cute little restaurant in my town.  It has the perfect atmosphere and it's a great place I can get a sandwich and read for several hours.  Plus, they have patio tables where I can sit outside if the weather is wonderful.  It's my favorite part about my new town.

What about you?  Where do you love to read?

  1. How nice! I spent some time reading at a local coffee shop last week & loved it! It was terrific!

    You're doing a great job on your books. I'm done 12 and have 33 left to read but I ended up reading 4 that weren't on my list because I forgot to account for the book tours I signed up to participate in. (Now that's something I don't suggest doing!!)

  2. Just found you via the Hop. Sounds like a fun challenge. I love Calapidder Days - it's such a fun blog. I also love the Oregon Coast. We always used to go to Seaside. It's always crowded, but so beautiful!
