BTT (#36) ~ my ideal reading experience

Today's prompt from Booking Through Thursday:
"I want you to think about your ideal reading experience.  Think about the location.  (Your bed?  Favorite chair?  The beach?  Indoors or outdoors?).  Think about the sounds.  (Is there music playing?  Happy children playing in the background?  Utter silence?)  Is there a snack or beverage nearby?  Are you alone or with friends/family (presumably being quiet enough for you to read in peace)?  What kind of lighting is there?  Are you dressed in something ultra-comfy?  What’s your position?  Curled up?  Stretched out?  Now … describe it so that we can all feel exactly how perfect it is … and why."
Not in a hammock...

Not on the ice...

Not on a beach...

Not on a bench...

Not on a Kindle...

Not on a beast...

I read in bed...

...and like my books well done.

(Best of all, of course, is reading to a child.)

Loved your post!!!!

For me reading is important. How/why/where are not relevant.

Here is my post!

I love the attitude!! Reading to my grandson is part of the highlight of their visits. At 8 months, he doesn't like to sit still for very long, but I am thankful that he does like books.
