Top Ten Tuesday-- Favorite Places to read

 

Hi! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme Jana hosts @thatartsyreadergirl This weekly meme was born out of a love of lists, and bringing the book blogging community together. Each Week, Jana will post a prompt, and we readers will post our list as a reply. We also have the option of going rogue, and posting a topic of our own choosing or a past topic. This week out topic is favorite places to read.

 

1- At my desk

 

I read a lot in my room and at my desk. I’m trying to find another method because I tend to stop reading and look at a notification that distracts me. I enjoy reading at my desk because it’s easy. 

2- In bed

I need to be wide awake to read in bed, but I might start doing it more. Reading in bed is less distracting for me, but it still can make me tired.

3- In the car

Some weeks I spend a lot of time in the car. When I’m in the the car I’ll try to read a chapter or two, but it sends up being more like 3-4 depending on how long the car ride is. Sometimes I don’t want to listen to the music other people in the car enjoy, so I’ll bring a book instead of listening to music on my phone.

4- On the couch

The couch is one of my favorite places to read, but like my bed, it can make me tired if I’m not fully awake. I enjoy reading on the couch because it is comfortable.

5- In a chair

I love reading in a chair that my mom has in her family room. I think it’s the perfect reading chair because it has support for your back, and it is comfortable.

6- At the kitchen table

I do this more at my mom’s but I love reading at the kitchen table or counter because it’s a good surface to put my book down on.

7- At the salon

I am one of those people that will read while waiting to get my hair done or waiting for my nails to dry. I will also read when I’m getting my toenails done. I love reading at the salon because there’s not much else to do there other than reading magazines. I’m not one of those people who like constant updates on the lives of celebrities, so I just prefer to read a book.

8- In the waiting room

From time to time, I will read a book while I’m in the waiting room. This is another case of me not wanting to read the magazines they have in the waiting room.

 

9- On A Plane

I don’t travel on planes all that much, maybe once every few years. Even for quick plan rides, I need to bring a book because most of the flights I go on have been quick and don’t really have the TV set up for everyone. Even when they do, most of the flights I take aren’t enough to finish a movie, so I end up just reading.

 

10- The Beach

I go down the shore a bit in the summer, but I don’t spend a lot of time on the beach. I really enjoy reading on the beach because it’s outside and it can be calm there with the waves. I also like seeing what other people are reading on the beach.

  6. These are all good places to read. The salon is a place I haven't seen on any lists yet. I, like you, prefer reading a book instead of the celebrity magazines in waiting rooms and at the salon.

    Here's my TTT list.

  8. I forgot about the salon but I love to read there too. I enjoy it so much more than trying to make random small talk with the other people there. That's just so awkward for me.

    1. Yes making the random small talk is why I prefer to read at the salon.

Can't Wait Wednesday -Confessions of a Curious Bookseller

 Hi! Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa  @wishfulendings . This meme is an offshoot of Waiting on Wednesday, which was hosted by  Jill@breakingthespine . The purpose of the meme is to feature books, usually unpublished, that we can't wait to read. This week, I'm featuring Confessions of a Curious Bookseller by Elizabeth Green. All information comes from GoodReads.  Title: Confessions of a Curious Bookseller Author: Elizabeth Green Genre: Adult Contemporary Expected Publication: January 1st, 2021  Add to Goodreads:  Here Goodreads Summary A heartening and uproariously funny novel of high hopes, bad choices, book love, and one woman’s best—and worst—intentions. Without question, Fawn Birchill knows that her used bookstore is the heart of West Philadelphia, a cornerstone of culture for a community that, for the past twenty years, has found the quirkiness absolutely charming. When an amicable young indie bookseller invades her block, Fawn is convinced that his cushy couch

Top Ten Tuesday –Favorite Couples (Valentine’s Day /Love Freebie)

  Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ thatartsyreadergirl. . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. I love doing this meme because it gives me a chance to bond with other bloggers. Every week, Jana will post a topic, and we bloggers will make a post with our list on the topic, or a different one. This week it was Valentines / Love, so I wanted to do a post on favorite couples. I may have done a similar post last year, but I know that there are some new couples on this list.  1- Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy- Pride & Prejudice   This is the only classic couple on this list. I enjoy their relationship because the two characters have little in common, and yet by the end of the novel, they make it work. As you read Pride & Prejudice, you get to see these two find the love each of them was missing. 2- Cath and Levi–Fangirl One of my favorite YA novels needed to appear on this list. I love Cath and Levi because they balanc

Top Ten Tuesday- Eight Reasons I enjoy reading

Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday  @ thatartsyreadergirl. This meme was born put a love of lists, and bringing the book blogging community together. Each Week, Jana will post a prompt and we bloggers will make a list based on that prompt. We also have the option to go rogue and do our own thing. This week, our topic is reasons I love reading. I went with eight instead of my usual ten. 1- The escape I know that this might be others reason for reading, but real life is a lot. I love reading because it offers me the opportunity to escape and be taken away from my real-life troubles for a while.  2-Finding new characters to love I love finding a new book filled with new characters that I can call my friends. I know that sounds cheesy, but I’ve always been one that loved to meet all the characters in my favorite books. My favorite characters to meet are the ones that are bookish or ones that have a passion for theatre or music. Once I find a character, I love finding out more about
