I recently was reading a book that I wasn’t able to leave, so I read it whenever it was possible. I even took it to the bathroom, and if I could I would have brought it to the shower. Sometimes I get obsessed with a book, and it is dangerous (for my eyes, for my back and for the relationship with my boyfriend). It happens specially with crime novels, where I’m so intrigued that I need to know what happens next.
Except for these occasions, when I read all the time and everywhere, I tend to read in bed, before going to sleep. I read usually fully laid down, almost with the book over my head, while my boyfriend is seated. I now that for the back is better to read seated, but somehow, even though I try to stay upright I finally slip and finis laying down.
When I have most problems is on the beach. I usually start facing down, but at some point, my neck is hurting, so I turn face up, but usually the sun hits, and I can’t open the eyes. Am I the only one to have those problems?
Other point about reading is if you have ambient music while reading or not. If I have it I prefer that is a music that I know before, although sometimes I yield to the temptation to sing.
Where and how do you read? Do you prefer to read in bed or in a sofa? Do you read with music?
