It’s Friday! Which means we get another My Reading Spot!!!
Today we have the awesometastic Giselle from Xpresso Reads. I am sure you have heard of her? If not! You have to! She’s awesome and a constant face in the blogger world! I love her reviews, they are always perfectly balanced and beautifully written! Her enthusiasm is contagious and I’m even considering reading this Zombies series about which Giselle is so super excited ! As The World Dies: A Zombie Trilogy , go and check her review, she truly makes you wanna read them! Her weekly feature “Fresh Batch” always tells me about the most exciting releases in YA! I’m always excited when I see her pretty and cute face on among my Blog commenters :))
But now, let her show us how and where Giselle reads:
Hello my lovelies!
First I want to thank Danny for inviting me to be part of My Reading Spot which is an awesome feature that I’ve been stalking. Bewitched Bookworms is one of my favourite blogs so I’m really happy to come over!
So obviously I read a lot, and I also have a toddler so I often get asked how I have the time. Well first, he naps an hour (more if I’m lucky) every day, then he goes to bed at 7 so that gives me plenty of time right there. (I can read a book in about 5 hours). But also, since he’s the only grandson on both sides, we have wonderful grandparents who are pining to have him over *hands over child happily*. When that happens and I can read in the daytime I chose to read on the couch with the coffee table next to me that will have my cup of much needed coffee, and my laptop. (Picture 1)
Most of the time, I’ll be found reading when it’s dark outside once my son is in bed. So that’s when I’ll be using my big old recliner. This is a super comfy chair and it reclines almost to a full horizontal position. I love it! As you can see I’m all set for night reading with my lamp right there. The windowsill usually has concoctions of different food/beverages to appease my constant munchies (and yes these munchies occur naturally. Just so we’re clear. (picture 2)
When I’m lucky, my son will be in a good mood and busy himself with toys or pot and pans for a while. This is when I try to steal some reading time. What’s funny though, if I’m sitting on the couch, he’ll come and ask me to play with him. Or make me watch him (in which case if I don’t he cries). But I’ve noticed if I sit in HIS chair. This is his tiny made-for-toddler chair, he’ll play quietly around me. Yes, I do fit in it, and it’s actually not that uncomfortable. Plus, if I don’t have to watch Elmo for the 25th time by sitting in this thing, I’m more than happy to. Elmo has four ducks Quack Quack Qauck Quack. *pulls out hair*. This is him in the chair at Christmas. His name is Alek – short of Alekzandre. He was 19 months then, and he adores books already!
So this is where I read. In the summertime I also read outside on my deck but it’s still in storage from winter so I couldn’t take a picture. It’s a super comfy outdoors chair though. It reclines!
Thanks so much for having me, Danny! This was a super fun. Plus, it made me get off my butt and clean my living room!
Oh Giselle you are more than welcome, but honestly the pleasure was all mine!!! And *gasps* do I see a MacBook there?? I LOVE all things Mac and I wouldn’t even touch anything else, yeah I’m weird that way! When you said The Bookworms were among your favorite blogs, this totally made my day!! *hugs*
Oh and, isn’t Alek the cutest?!?! I love his name so much!! Where does it come from? How cute is this chair for him?? Besides, I would probably cry myself if you wouldn’t play with me ;))
Thank you so much for sharing today Giselle!!!
Wish you all a great Friday, Much LOVE
