Feature & Follow (15): Reading Spot

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #120

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by both Alison Can Read and Parakunkee’s View. This is a great way to gain blog followers for book bloggers, follow other blogs, and get to know each other. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we get to answer. You can find more info about this meme here.

Q: Book Vacay: Where is the best destination reading spot for you? (Where do you like to go to read other then your home?)
 
I'll be honest. I can read just about anywhere. With three loud, active, fun-loving sons, I don't exactly get a lot of quiet time at home, and vacations tend to be family-oriented, so I have learned to adapt. I can read in the bathroom or the kitchen; I can read while my husband is driving or listen to an audiobook with the kids; I can read in a grocery store aisle or while my in-laws watch a western on TV. But what is really the best is a quiet place, somewhere outdoors with a comfy seat and cool drink or at a café on a big cozy chair with a cup of hot tea, without the usual distractions.

  1. I like cafes sometimes too, just to get away from it all. Our girls are readers too, so sometimes I'll look up and they're all reading too- that's fun. :) Thanks for visiting, new follower.

  2. Jenny,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I agree with you about reading anywhere, especially with kids about (I have two boys) so I rarely even am able to indulge in reading on vacation!

    Thanks for visiting me and I am now following you via GFC and twitter.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Nice! I can do that as well! Although I prefer quiet. Not too big on outdoors though since it's usually hot in St. Louis! But yeah, I can adapt to reading nearly anywhere as well!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  10. I'm the same as you, except in the car. When I was really young I used to read in the car, I think until I got glasses. Since then I get car sick. :-( Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I'm a new GFC follower!
