Ramblings of a Coffee-Addicted Writer!
Well, if I'm really interested in a book, I guess I could read almost anywhere, actually. However, for me, the best place to read would be one in which I would feel comfortable enough to be able to get lost in a book, whether I'm reading fiction or nonfiction.
My husband and I live in a condo. In the living room, we have a super comfortable couch with double recliners. So I do love to read there at night, after hubby has gone to bed. Since I have a part-time night job, I don't have to get up early, so sometimes I stay up until 4:00 AM. I'm definitely a night owl!
I also have a reading nook, with a very comfortable massage chair and foot stool. I have a small table right next to it, too, which holds my laptop (when not in use) and some books.

Although I love these two reading places, I still dream of an ideal reading corner.... This ideal place would be totally different. It would be a huge bay window, like the ones in old English mansions (I'm thinking of Thornfield Hall, from the novel Jane Eyre). This window would have a wide ledge, upholstered with a surface similar to a mattress, and would have lots of large, cuddly throw pillows, bright, but indirect, sunlight, and a beautiful view outside, with gorgeous, ancient oak trees and rolling fields. Sigh.... Yes, I'm a romantic at heart!
These are not typical of bay windows at Thornfield Hall, but they look very comfy and cozy!
