Feature & Follow Friday #10

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly social blog hop between book bloggers. There are two regular hosts: Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read, and two special guest hosts every week. If you want to join in, click on either of their blogs to get the details. The FF question of the day is:

 Q: Activity!!! Take a picture or describe where you love to read the most... 

 

My favorite place to read is the bath tub. But since I don't have a tub in my current residence, I'll have to go with a location almost as good--my bed.

I'm big into piling several comforters on, while the cat and dog sleep at my feet. Reading has some sort of association with being cozy for me, I guess.

Above is the fantasy bath tub I'd love to be reading in right now. I have such severe tub withdrawal that I created a Pinterest board of lovely bath tubs!

But I'm lucky to be curled up in bed, listening to the breaking waves coming from my sound machine, with an endless stream of ebooks available. 

The silver lining of the no bath tub cloud--you can't read on your Kindle for PC while in the tub. Or at least, you probably shouldn't!

  1. I never read in the bathtub, but that sounds like a wild experience. I prefer the comfort of my bed.

    1. It seems like there are a number of people who never read in the bathtub! But as for wild, you can't beat Edith Wharton, who wrote in the tub. Thanks for reading!

  7. Knowing me I would drop the book/Kindle/iPad right into the tub. I'm a terrible klutz.
    But that is definitely a beautiful bathtub.

    Here's my Follow Friday. stop by if you get a chance.

    1. I have dropped books in the tub! Luckily, they dry, but it's awfully annoying when you want to be reading the book RIGHT NOW! Thanks for reading.

  8. Wow, now you mention it. I also love reading in my bathtub! Or well, loved. We don't have one anymore - shower now. My favorite places to read are on the train and in my bed.

    I remember I once read in the bathtube... didn't really work out for me. My book ended up getting all wet and ruined, which made me miserable because it was my favorite book. Ah well, since then I've stuck with just reading in my bed ^.^

    1. Yeah, if the book gets ruined that could sour the experience. Thanks for following!

    1. Yes, sometimes there is book disaster involved. For me, it's worth the risk! Thanks for following.

  12. I draw the line at the bath tub - a swimming pool, though, that's a lovely setting. I sit in a children's inflatable boat and float around with my book! New follower from FF.
