    I like to read sitting under a blanket near a window while it’s raining 🙂

  • dennis says:

    I read either sitting on my room on the bed or on my couch in my living room, mostly at nights when I get home from work.

  • William says:

    I read in bed and on the living room sofa, early in the morning or late at night.

  • I need to hold a real book. With e books I can’t process or retain information. This change in reading style happened after my onset.

    • Laurie says:

      I agree with you! I always have to have a real book in my hand. I mark up the pages with highlighter and pen, in order to make sense of the material and for retention.

  • Katie says:

    I love curling up with a book, blanket, and a dog or a cat on my lap. 🙂

  • Ali says:

    I love donning my wool hat and gloves and then wrapping up in a four season sleeping bag on a crisp winter’s day and reading on the swing seat in my garden with a mug of fresh coffee steaming next to me.

  • Laurie says:

    My favorite place is in the evening, curled up on my recliner, with my cat on the armrest. Yellow highlighter and pen, in hand, to take notes! Best place in the world!

  • Fatimah says:

    Curled up in a blanket on the couch, with a lovely cup of tea (or hot chocolate!) and snuggled with a gorgeous book. Nothing beats that 🙂

  • Janna Johnson says:

    I like to read on rainy days with the windows open so I can hear it. As a Clinical Social Worker, I love that you are promoting a cause near and dear to my heart. Thank you.
