I am returning with my new feature...Why I love which takes place onWednesdays Last week I discussed my one of my favorite series. And in the weeks before I discussed my favorite book institution, types of characters, and one of my favorite genres. This week's topic: favorite reading spot.
If you want to play along, feel free to grab the image and link your post in the comments.
Why I Love...My Reading Chair
I think everyone has that one spot. The spot where you might look and smile. You smile because you know you read there. It's like a dirty little secret that isn't quite so dirty. You smile because it is the place where the magic sets in. Oh don't get me wrong. I can read ANYWHERE and I especially love to read in the bathtub (but I can't show that to the public right now...). But with my reading chair, I have it all.I can sit or lay while I read. I can have everything I need all around me. I don't have to move. And best of all... it's comfortable. Trust me on this one.
But my chair is different for another reason. It's mine. I associate it with all the wonderful things I have in my life: my family and books. My parents bought me this chair because I wanted it. I saw it, saw the potential and fell in love. My dad said... it's yours and that day it was. Am I really going on and on about a chair? Well yes, yes I am. I'm not alone in my love of the reading chair. It's hard to keep other people out of it. And I do try. I do allow my trusty ladybug friends to visit (I love ladybugs and I take them everywhere with me because they are my reading companions but that is another story more bizarre than my love for a chair...maybe another day for that story).
Really...I just love to read. And I read in my chair. So I love my chair. Those of you who have studied for or taken the LSAT will appreciate those last three sentences more than most. My chair is my go-to happy spot and I love it. It is where I reread the Rawhide man, charge my Ereader, or lay on Lilly while reading Exposure. It is where I will be for my next Read-a-Thon.
I find that I feel more connected to people, places, and things that are connected to my love of reading. It is a really special thing. For now, I will end my ode to the chair post so that I can read for my American Legal History class. In my chair, even that has magic.
