Everyone has their favorite place to read.
Mine is my bed. How can you give up nearly fifty years of habit?! Early in life, my bedroom was the place to go to escape my turbulent family life, and the bed was the main piece of furniture in it. Then for twenty-nine years and two children and assorted pets including dh, I lived in a small one-floor house where the only place to go to read in peace was the bed, late at night.
Now I have a lovely room in a much larger house that's all mine, complete with my idea of heaven--orange walls, room for _lots_ of books, a comfy sofa, and a bright lamp beside it. The only thing is--
I want to read in bed! The only problem, that's where dh's toy, the big-screen plasma tv with Surround Sound system is. Last night I finished up the ARC of Julie Kenner's July release, DEJA DEMON (yes, the fourth in her Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom series--this one's fantastic!)
to all the lovely sounds of the original 'Star Wars.' Darth Vader's heavy and ominous breathing seemed appropriate as background noise to demon fighting and Saving The World From Evil. Darth Vader's famous theme will forever be intertwined in my mind with Kate Connor and family.
Tonight I'm reading the first in a new cozy mystery series set in the Edwardian period, HIGH MARKS FOR MURDER by Rebecca Kent aka Doreen Roberts Hight. I'm happily ready to hit the sheets. Dh informs me that he's watching the new Rambo movie...oh, dear!
So where do you like to read?
