    Where/When Do You Read?

    The commute thread made me think about this. A substantial amount of my reading time is on my commute - but most people drive so I wondered where/when other people read.

    I read two books at once - a non-fiction for my commute - which is about 30 minutes each way and then a fiction at home for bedtime reading. I will sometimes read on the couch during the day or in the evening if I'm not interested in what the family's doing - but the commute/bedtime reading is guaranteed.

    I read all over- use the Kindle ap on my phone. Mostly I read at home though because I won't be disrupted.

    I read almost every night from about 9pm-midnight.

    During the school year, I also read when I have to take the boys to their classes. This coming year, Matthew will be taking Chemistry and Spanish with someone else and Johnny will be taking Pre-Algebra with someone else. The classes are too far away to drive back and forth, so, all told, I will have about 6 hours a week to read while I wait on one of them.

    On the train if I'm commuting, in the bath, in bed at night and during lunch at work.

    In bed, if the kiddo or husband are watching things I don't on TV. When I am a passenger in the car, waiting rooms.

    Audiobooks in the car (and during chores). Regular books on the couch at night or in bed. On the weekends, with my morning coffee! But I always have a book with me for just in case. I hate waiting around without anything to read!

    I cannot read before bed, because I will just stay up later to read more. I read in the afternoons - I get out of work at 3 and Doug doesn't usually get home till 4-5 (and he usually has more work to do when he gets home), so I get a solid hour or two to read before I start thinking about dinner. I'm a fast reader, also.
