FYI (4)

Another hour has gone by and once again you are blowing up the twitter-sphere. It is just so great that you are all getting so involved as well as reading up a storm. I am quite interested to see what you guys are getting up to whether it is reading or listening, so leave your titles in the comments below. Sometimes the best place to find new books is a recommendation from someone else so peeps share the love.

The other thing that has been on my mind lately is finding places to read. Personally there is nothing better than being at home in your PJ’s with a steaming cuppa either tucked up in bed or on the sofa with fluffiest blanket you can find. But when you are out and about it can be tough to find a spot to read that is comfortable, quiet and just right. When I was younger I used to be able to zone out in coffee shops as soon as I put my headphones on, now for some reason I find this hard so I am in need of quieter, more settled digs.

Reading Spot

I have been scouring the net to find out what other people think is the perfect reading space and check out the first one. With all of those pillows and blankets as well as being right by the window for maximum light there is the bookcase behind for you to choose your next read and shelf the most recently finished.

Backyard Escapes

This one came from Pinterest and my, my how beautiful is it! Just imagine plotting up in this little hideout with a pot of tea and your latest read. No distractions but the sounds of the birds and leaves rustling! Beautiful right?!

Reading Room

This is one place that I have known about for some time now but I have yet to visit. The Wellcome Museum Reading Room is just beautiful as you can see. Surrounded by all the books you can think of and there is a cafe in the building that serves some delicious coffee and cake for those much needed break times.

Now it’s your turn, where do you read? Let me know in the comments below . . .

This is my last Hour co-hosting peeps but I will be chilling on Twitter for the rest of the day so please do feel free to hit me up!

  1. I read wherever my toddler allows me to! That often means laying on the floor of her bedroom reading picture books with stuffies and Little People all over me! I read for me while she’s napping or late at night after everyone has gone to sleep.

  2. Reading at the kitchen table while having some leftover pizza for lunch at the moment. Today I’ll probably read here at the table, in the bed, outside in the hammock or the sky chair, & also listen to my audiobook while pushing the reel mower.

  3. Was going to go to a local park but as its raining, just curled up on the couch in a long tshirt, candles burning, enjoying a new story. Reading Watchers of Time. Not into the audio books yet.

  4. I do almost all of my reading in bed, at night before I go to sleep. I try to get an hour in each night. Once in a while, I treat myself and read a bit during the day, lying out on my deck if it is nice out or lying on the couch inside (where I am today!). And I always have an audio book going, which I listen to while cooking, walking, driving, doing laundry, etc – squeezing in books into every nook & cranny!

    1. Sometimes bed is just the perfect place to be! You can take a little nap without going anywhere and wake up and read in a nice warm spot! x

    1. I have recently acquainted myself with Chai tea and oh my it is heavenly! I like to be near a window because if the suns out then it is awesome, if the rain is out i’m happy that I am indoors so it’s a win win!! x

  5. i am currently reading 2 books that I switch between. The first book is Child of Mine by David and Beverly Lewis and the other book is Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I am reading on the bed with my 3 year old who is also picking up random books and making up her own stories by looking at pictures.

  6. Currently reading in the office, but I have a dedicated library with sofa and reclining chairs to move to once that gets too uncomfortable. Saving those spots for later!

  7. I built a library with my house that is like a loft on the second story. I love reading there in the perfect chair and have the floor to ceiling bookcases beckoning me to keep reading.

  8. I am camped out on my couch this morning, daughter at the other end with her stack of books, and the dog at our feet. Later on I will have to move on to an audiobook while I mow the lawn, but right now I’m enjoying my little slice of heaven.
