Happy Friday and welcome to another “My Reading Spot Friday”.
It’s Pushy here today!
I have adored reading
everyone’s reading spots throughout the past few weeks.
I just love this feature that Danny created and I’m so happy to share my Reading Spots!
So without further ado, here are my reading spots:
I’ve always been an avid reader. I love to lose myself in a story, no matter where I am. But as a mother of three under 6 and newly returned to working outside of the home, finding the time to read has been a challenge! Yet, where there’s a will, there’s a way and as you can see, I’ve gotten creative in my pursuit of reading.
My traditional reading spot is my giant comfy chair. I have spent years by now, reading in this chair. I read here before I had my kids, I read here while enormously pregnant with my twins and I read here until I passed out after everyone in the house had FINALLY gone to sleep. This is a great chair. It reclines almost fully horizontal and is plush and leathery and just like heaven!
One of my sneakiest ways to get some reading in is when I’m doing the laundry. Nothing gets me time alone quicker than telling my husband I’m about to tackle the mountain of laundry the five of us produce on a weekly basis. And, as you can see, a glass of wine does occasionally accompany me upstairs (yes, I’m lucky enough to have my laundry room up on the second floor of my house along with all of our bedrooms).A good book, a glass of wine, and pile upon cozy warm pile of clothes to fold. I’m a giver, I really am. 🙂
But by far, I get the most reading done in my car. No, don’t alert the state troopers on Tollway-294, because here again, it’s all audio, baby! Since I went back to the corporate world, I have regained my 10 hour a week commute time. Sure, I could spend that time cursing other drivers or edu-macating myself on the news or something, but forget that! I like to spend my time in dystopian future worlds filled with tough girls and hot guys!
So that’s me! I hope you enjoyed seeing my reading spots. And I’d love to find out what your favorite reading spot is, so make sure you leave it in the comments along with what you’re reading now while you’re in your reading spot!
Now go and get lost…in a book!
