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?

    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!

  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!)
