This week's question...
I want you to think about your ideal reading experience. Think about the location. (Your bed? Favorite chair? The beach? Indoors or outdoors?). Think about the sounds. (Is there music playing? Happy children playing in the background? Utter silence?) Is there a snack or beverage nearby? Are you alone or with friends/family (presumably being quiet enough for you to read in peace)? What kind of lighting is there? Are you dressed in something ultra-comfy? What’s your position? Curled up? Stretched out?
Now … describe it so that we can all feel exactly how perfect it is … and why.
First, I like to read inside. There are less distractions. Plus, I hate bugs and end up spending more time brushing them aside than reading. I prefer to be lying in bed, alone with no music or anything in the background. I need total quiet so I can be totally transported into the pages of the book. I don't eat while I read, but a cold beverage nearby is good (if it's winter then a hot beverage). I'd be wearing something comfy either sweats or a nightshirt. Sometimes with a cat lying by my side.
One thing I should be doing - shutting down my computer. As long as it's on, I easily can be led astray, stop reading and go online. Have to stop that.
So, how about you?
