Where are the best places to read?

Reading can be a very enjoyable and enriching hobby.

For many people, a favourite pastime is coming home from a long day, making a hot drink and curling up with a book.

If you are unsure exactly where a comfortable spot is, this post can help.

Here are my top three destinations for reading!


1) A window seat

Window seats are great for snuggling next to on both warm and cold days.

If it is sunny, you can enjoy a little tanning while being snug and comfortable next to a window.

If it is freezing, you can cuddle up with a pillow and a hot chocolate and enjoy the warmth of your house.

Either way, you can thoroughly enjoy your book in all kinds of weather nestled in a window seat.


2) A comfy chair

In the middle of winter, one of our most common sources of entertainment is to read a good book.

When you think of a place to read a book, you automatically think of a big, comfy chair, don’t you?

Cushioned chairs are great places to read a book, especially in front of a fire or heater.

When you can enjoy a thick book and a snack in a comfy chair, you can escape the freezing cold of winter.


3) The beach

We have so far been discussing some great places for a winter read.

Well, for summer, why not spend an afternoon reading at the beach?

You can stretch out and relax on the sand while reading a good book.

If you get too hot, you can just go have a swim!


I hope you have taken something from this blog post, and that you have found a good new location to try and read a book.

Happy reading!



Love your chatty style and reflective comments. You have also nailed my #1 location - the window seat!
