Book Hop!

Book Blogger Hop

It's Blog hop time again-something I always look forward to on Fridays. This blog hop is brought to you by Crazy for Books-thanks Jennifer for such a great meme!

This week's question is: "Where is your favorite place to read?"

I actually have a couple of favorite places. My absolute favorite is in my sun room. My apartment has a little room with windows on three sides. I keep my bookshelves there and have some IKEA chairs, some end tables and a stereo. It is my happy place to relax with a mug of tea and read away.

I also love to read in bed. It is a nightly ritual for me to take in a few pages every night before I head off to sleep. But I have to be careful with what I read here-if it is scary or really sad it will keep me up shaking or bawling!

So how about you? Where is your book reading happy place?

Happy Friday! I usually read in bed in the evenings. Love to stretch out with a bunch of pillows and get comfortable.

My answer is in the cozy two-seater chair in my living room. It's so comfy!

I have to read a little before I go to sleep as well - most of the time i have to force myself to put the book down and actually go to sleep lol

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

Your sun room sounds amazing and a half! Seriously, I'm completely jealous. I was supposed to have a library in my new house but the shelves haven't been built yet and my husbands stuff is slowly creeping into this room.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm following back for sure XD

I know what you mean about reading scary things at night, I always have to listen to something happy or watch glee afterwards otherwise I'm likely to have nightmares. Oh, the perils of an overactive imagination lol.

Have a great weekend! said...
