A Place to Read

Last Friday at school, Debra Frasier commented on how our library has an exceptionally comforting feel to it. Readers are welcome to take time finding a book to suit them. Listeners actively engage as the librarians read aloud, watching, gasping, relaxing their bodies. Comments yesterday about the reading chairs we love at home got me wondering. Where do other people love to read? What spaces make a reader more or less engaged?

  1. A comfy corner or a little nook has always been my favorite place to do some solitary reading. Such joy!

  2. It's the couch, feet up, with a comforter in winter. I just got a full spectrum lamp for doing art work (Verilux), but it turns out it's great for reading too. Your reading chairs are very enticing & your school library is wonderful.

  3. i'm with sketchbook wandering...feet up with a faux fur blanket tucked around me and maybe a warm oat bag in my lap...or a cat...or both.

  4. My cozy armchair . . . so I can shift positions at will . . . and, like others, a cozy fleece blanket for warmth. Somehow reading's always better in winter.
