You remember I used to join in the Book Blogger Hop occasionally? This is a question I wanted to address at the end of March, but something else came up that HAD to be blogged about, so I postponed it to a rainy day, so to speak.
The question is:
Do you read more on a rainy day or on a gorgeous day so you can be outside?
For me, I discover I read more outside, but specifically when I am sitting next to the guinea pigs in their runs out on the grass. Two things have affected this:
- my eyesight is not as good as it was and I hate reading anything but my kindle in artificial light
- I can read my kindle indoors or out
This particularly affects my bookclub reads, since they come as paperbacks and sometimes the print is small or a fashionable grey, and it’s simply too hard to persevere with them. I know I could get another reading light – but I could also see about getting them on my kindle from the library.
I do enjoy my reading in the garden. I like to have a bit of shade, which is sometimes difficult, and I meant to rework the sitting place to the other corner of the garden over the winter to make it more shady, but never got around to it. I do a bit of gardening when the boys are out mowing the lawn for me, but I rarely do more than half an hour at a time, and then I can settle down with a book for an hour or two and just relax. Bliss! And then I take the boys indoors back to their cages, and get back to work on the books or blogging. It’s a hard life 😉
What about you?
