Top 5 (places to read) Tuesday

You have to read somewhere, right? You can’t just read floating in the air or in an inter-dimensional pocket, right? Okay, I suppose if you’re some type of very interesting person, you probably could!

But otherwise for us mere mortals we have to figure out partially normal places to read! Thanks to Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads for giving this prompt to us and go to this place to see what she thinks are good places to read!


My bed. Either it’s physically/e-book format and I read for a bit while watching some YouTube. Or listen to an audiobook while I play a mobile game. Or sometimes I just lie in bed and listen to it to help me sleep.

I don’t fall asleep very easily (as in it takes me anywhere from about 30 to an hour and a half) so I usually try to listen to a book until I’m on the verge of falling asleep and then I stop the book and go to sleep. It works! Occasionally πŸ˜„.

The couch. Could definitely be more comfortable but it does come with the added benefit of the TV. Plus a pet or two or even all of them if they so wish πŸ˜‚. Plus it also means I get to see what the dogs bark at (I regret to inform you that quite often it’s the wind or a plastic bag. Donna has it in her mind that everything is a threat πŸ˜‚).

The couch is also where I do most of my watching and reading or watching and blogging from. I can’t read without something in the background. Does that mean I get through my watchlist quickly? Absolutely not, I tend to restart series I’ve partially watched before, forget I was watching it, let a few months go past and then… have to restart the series all over again 😭

Does household chores count? Like kitchen, lounge, etc? I listen to audiobooks at at least 1.5x speed so I can get about an hour or so of audio time down. And then crack another hour/hour half in bed so while chores aren’t great for my pain, it’s good for finishing books!

Transportation. I’m one of the lucky ones that don’t get car sick πŸ˜‚ if I know I’ll be in a car for a while I take my Kindle. Otherwise I make sure that I have an arc or two or a library book on my phone to pass the time.

Everywhere else. That’s the great thing about phones! I can take it out if I’m waiting somewhere and if I’m quickly enough or have enough time to wait I can even finish an entire chapter!

Also, I think this is an important time to tell you that when I was a teen we lived in the Northern side of town (still do) and my high school is in the Southern side. I would either by the library and wait for my dad to finish work or I’d walk home myself (take about an hour). Either way, I’d be reading a book. And by that I mean walking and reading πŸ˜„

But, DB, I hear you say electronically, wasn’t that dangerous? And yes, it certainly was πŸ˜‚ I would quite often hear teachers, kids telling me their parents nearly drove over me – because… I would be too engrossed in the book πŸ˜„ Oh and I walked into tons of trees, poles, parked cars, dustbins, and my most memorable one… Open pothole πŸ˜‚


Well, that’s it! You’re allowed to laugh/make fun of the pothole incident πŸ˜‚. Everyone does. So now that you know one of my secrets (just kidding, I’d tell anyone it if I had about 15 minutes of chatting πŸ˜‚. But anyway! What are some places where you like to read? Tell me down below in the comments!

    1. I did, yes! And a guy walked past and didn’t stop to help me at all πŸ˜‚ luckily I didn’t go too far down but still! I’m very glad for audiobooks now πŸ˜‚ I’m still vigilant of my surroundings, of course (you have to be if you live in South Africa πŸ˜’πŸ˜’) but it’s a bit safer now
