Where do you read? Does it have any effect on your enjoyment, relaxation or concentration? Do you like to be snuggled up with your book, or free to stretch out and roam with it?
My favourite way to read is surrounded by half a dozen cushions on the sofa, with a scented candle burning away on the coffee table - a steaming hot cup of tea never goes amiss either!
I've known others to read their books while walking to and from work. Their ability to concentrate on a narrative while navigating is something of a marvel to me - I could never dream of having that kind of multitasking ability!
Some of my friends read in the gym. This is also something I couldn't imagine doing... The mixture of sweaty-ness, constant movement while focusing on tiny words and the hot, humid atmosphere isn't appealing to my love of literary escapism at all!
It just goes to show how different we all are, and how one story can be enjoyed and interpreted in so many different ways.
So go on, spill! What's your favourite way to read a book?
