TGIF (3): Show & Tell

TGIF at GReads is a feature by the fabulous Ginger, who asks us a fun question to answer every week. It's always a joy to be a part of this, and I think everyone certainly should try it out!

Where do you grab a book and get lost in it? Show us your favorite spot you like to read at.

I'm one of those people who can read anywhere. I read while I'm commuting to and from the City on the bus or on the train. I read while I'm eating a snack, on a road trip or even during commercial breaks while I'm watching television.  I even read while I'm walking on the busy streets of New York, if I can manage it.

When I still lived in the Philippines, I loved reading on the couch in our living room or on the window seat because both spots were comfortable and I was usually left undisturbed. Since I moved to the US however, I've developed a soft spot for reading in my bed.

Now I know most people feel like dozing off when they're reading in bed, but I usually don't.  In fact, I have a very difficult time forcing myself to stop reading! I like reading in bed because it's comfortable, no one bothers me and I can put whatever I need (a glass of water, cell phone, iPod) within reach on my bedside table.

Happy Friday readers! Where's your reading spot?


  1. I'm super jealous of people who can read while traveling... I get so carsick!

  2. I am the same way. I read everywhere. I even read at stop lights.

  3. I love the pinkness of your bed :) And I'm with you, I can read anywhere and during commercial breaks! YAY! :)
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. I read everywhere, too! And now that I've discovered audiobooks, it's even worse!

  5. Looks really comfortable!
    I read everywhere too. I don't even wait for the breaks on TV, I just read through the whole thing. :D

  6. I am EXACTLY like you! I often times have a hard time sleeping once I start reading. I force myself to put the book down. My bedroom is the only quiet, "me" room of the house so that's why I love it! Pretty pink comforter!

  7. thank you for stopping by! i'm a new follower!

  8. Oh gosh, I read everywhere! I read in my bed, but I usually pass out haha

    Happy Friday, Alexa :) I'm a new follower!

  9. I try to read while in bed but I find that I doze off too quickly when I do that. I'm weak like that.

    Thanks for stoping by. New follower.

  10. @Jen Well, at least these days, for people who get motion sickness, there's always the option of audiobooks :)

  11. @Amy @ bookgoonie We'd definitely get along then! Reading everywhere we can manage it ;)

  12. @Daisy Thanks! My room is way too pink, I think, so I really should get something in a different color in there!

  13. @barmybex On occasion, I do that too! I end up reading/watching lol.

  14. @Katelyn I find it SO difficult to put down a book I enjoy (like, in the case of The Hunger Games, for instance, I ended up sleeping at 4AM!)

  15. I choose my bed too, its so comfy only side effect falling asleep while reading late at night, lol.

    1. Oh yes. The hazards of reading in bed! I do love it so though.
