Is that a weird question? More musings today. You people already know I’m crazy so just go with this, okay?
So, I’m in the shower thinking about reading. What? I was. I also think about reading in my car, at the grocery store, while I work out at the gym, when I put my makeup on, and when I sleep … where I tend to dream about reading.
A-hem. That’s another post for another day. Anyway, as the shampoo dripped into my eyes, stinging the crap out of them, I realized something— my reading habit’s changed when I changed bathing habits.
Yes, I get this giddy over reading in the bathtub, don’t you?
WTHeck? Right? Well, see I used to run a steaming hot bubble bath, grab my dog-eared paperback of the moment, jump in the tub and read ’til the water went cold. You can do that with paperbacks. In my opinion, that’s what they are for. Love them up, turn down the pages, take them to the pool, the beach—treat ’em rough. They like it! 🙂
Hard covers? Perish the thought! Those babies get a place of honor on my bookshelf. True favorites are worth the money and a permanent place in my home where space is limited. Why? Because the spectacular writing of that particular author hit a heartstring and they’ve earned their spot. Hard covers are read in special places where nothing will damage them, under the shade in a hammock on a sunny day, at the park, or on my back porch. *Sigh*
Part of the change in my reading habits occurred when my writer friend, J.A. Belfield, told me to put a Kindle AP on my computer. Wait, what? You don’t know her? Run, don’t walk, to your nearest computer and download her books! http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/4730698.J_A_Belfield As I was saying … digital reading put a laptop in my fingers instead of paper. And since my battery blows chunks (I need a new one which I’m too cheap to buy) that limits me to the wall plugs next to my bed or on my couch at night. Still, reading on my laptop is nice next to a cozy fire in the winter. *sigh x 2*
Don’t you find reading makes you more attractive? I usualy look just like this when I read first thing in the morning.
So between Kindle and showers, my reading habits have changed. I think most people have a favorite place to read along with a format they like. What about you? Kindle, Nook, paperback, hard cover … Leave me a comment, I’d love to know … where, when, and how you like to read?
Reading is just so sexy, people. Plus, it tends to make our bodies more flexible. I like contorting into uncomfortable positions and reading for hours, but now I’m just showing off.
