Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Places to Read

24 May

Author Note: I had some great pics of these places all ready to upload into my computer, but silly me, I have misplaced my camera cord.  So, you’ll just have to use your imagination today.

This week’s topic is: Books I Lied About.  I tried, I really tried to think of something, but I guess I just don’t really lie about books.  I could only think of one: The Odyssey.  Yes, I have never read it, but I lied about reading it at least 3 times while in high school and college.  I even wrote an A paper about the relationship between Odysseus and Telemachus without ever reading the book.  The story of The Odyssey is so well known that at this point, I don’t feel like I have to read it.  So there it is, my dirty little reading secret.

Since I couldn’t think of 10 lies, I thought I would do another one of my personal Top Ten lists.  This week’s topic: Favorite Places to Read!

1. My car: it may not be my favorite, but I certainly do a lot of reading in here.  Usually I have about 20 minutes between finished volunteering at my children’s school and them getting out of school.  So I read in the car line.  I also read it I am early to picking them up from their dad’s.  Or I read waiting for friends to show up somewhere.  I spend a lot of time in the car.

2. Firefly Coffeehouse: My favorite coffeehouse.  My second home.  Preferrably the back corner.

3. My bedroom: I read a lot before bed, so obvious choice.

4. The 4 Seasons room in my house:  This recliner is my go to place for reading during the day.

5. The deck: In the backyard.  Comfy chairs under the umbrella on a nice day.  Perfect!

6. Lyon’s Park: The boys love this park, so I end up reading a lot sitting on the bench while the boys play.

7. The dining room table: I know, kind of weird.  But when the boys are doing homework, I usually sit here and read.  That way I am available for questions, but am not forced to just stare into space for that 30-45 minutes.

8. Dream place #1: Florida beach! Just gorgeous… love it.

9. Dream place #2: Villa on the coast of Greece.  One of my dream vacation spots.

10. My future favorite place to read: my reading chair!  Isn’t it purty?  Unfortunately, it’s in Omaha and I’m still in Fort Wayne.  Soon chair soon!
