Top 10 Tuesday (Cozy reading spots)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish.

This weeks top 10 list is Favorite Cozy reading spots:

  1. My Tub: I thought I would the weird one by picking this,but reading some others it's apparent I'm not. I've been told it's a stupid place to do because the books could get wet (Duh) or something else could happen. (although I don't know what). I also have a little neck pillow for it jsut because the way my stupid tub is shaped. it doesn't have a slant to it.
  2. The Car: Don't worry I'm not reading and driving at the same time. I love to be able to take a book with me when someone else is driving and we have a little bit of a drive. (actually even if it's a short distance I stil read). I had a friend ask me one time how I could read in a moving car because it made her car sick. My answer. It's simple. I guess I'm not a car-sickness kind of person. I know this is bad, but I take my books with me and leave them in the front passenger seat, and read at redlights if I can. (Some red lights are so freaking long) This is not a habit I promise.
  3. My bed: This is probably one of those answers everybody will put, but it truly is one of the best/coziest places to read. To be able to snuggle in your comforter and in my case with my dog right next to me (or under my legs if I'm sitting a weird way I can't explain) Also with my cat sitting on my other side. I love my animals coziness.
  4. At work: Yup, you read right. I love to read at work. Not actually while I'm working because that would be pretty hard to do. What with counting and all. On my breaks I usually like to go to our breakroom and take my book with me. I can usually get in a few chapters if I try hard enough. I use to be able to read at my other job after we slowed down at night, but this store is much more fast paced.
  5. In the chair I'm sitting in now: LOL how's that one for you. It's actually just a dining room chair that my butt has grown accustom to while staying with my mom. (electricity is turned off, but no worries it will be back on friday after 2 months of not being at MY apartment) I'll sit here and mess on the computer awhile, and then grab my books I have sitting next to me and read. Then back to my computer. It sometimes is an ugly cycle. :) Like I said it's quite comfy to me now. Maybe because I've made an indentation in the chair. :)
  6. The Park: I don't go to the park much to read, but we do have a few little parks around where I live and to be able to just go there and sit on a bench or one of the picnic tables at like dusk. When it's not hot or cold is really relaxing and can be very peaceful if no one else is around.
I couldn't come up with 10 but I think I got pretty close just 4 away. What are some of your coziest places?


  1. I've been trying to read during lunch at work. It's hard,

    My post is at

  2. I couldn't make it to 10 either. I'm jealous you can read in the car. I just can't do it, but it would be nice to break up long car trips.

  3. Love the fact that you read at work, I bet it makes for a great break!

  4. First off, thanks for coming by my blog! :)

    You can read in three places that I always struggle with, the tub, bed and the car, but sometimes I'll do it anyway. I'm also finding out from other bloggers who also participated that very few books have ever suffered a watery death in the tub. Perhaps, this will help me move past my fear of reading in the tub.
    I do think reading in bed is super comfy but a little too much for me as I'll fall asleep but sometimes that's one way I'll be able to finally fall out. I tend to have a hard time falling asleep.
    I love listening to audio books in the car! I'm glad that you can read the actual book. Cool!
    P.S. I love reading YA lit. like you do. :)

  5. My fav places to read are:

    1. Chaise (it's right next to the fireplace!)
    2. Bed (I have insomnia so I don't fall asleep.)
    3. Deck
    4. Park
    5. Pool
    6. The little girl's ballet studio (her class is 3 hours long.)
    7. Car (ONLY if it'sa road-trip.)
    8. Outside my office (lunch & breaks)
    9. Waiting room's (doctor, dentist, etc.)
    10. Airplane (it's either read or listen to my ipod, mostly read.)

    I usually ALWAYS have a book with me, wherever I go. And, because I take such awesome care of my little beauties I even have a special bag that I carry it in so it doesn't get bent or scratched, fingerprints, etc. - Craziness, I know. ;)

  6. Amy- That's me too I always have a book sitting in my car or if I have my purse with me one in there also. I think I've actually taking somet to the drs office and er when I've gone a few times. Hey our craziness is what makes us..well us. :)

    Julie- No Prob. Yeah so far none of my books have suffered the watery Death. :) I love being able to read in the car it's great.

    Willa- it does make for a great break. I even forget to it eat sometimes.
