Booking through Thursday

Are you a Goldilocks kind of reader?

Do you need the light just right, the background noise just so loud but not too loud, the chair just right, the distractions at a minimum?

Or can you open a book at any time and dip right in, whether it’s for twenty seconds, while waiting for the kettle to boil, or indefinitely, like while waiting interminably at the hospital–as long as the book is open in front of your nose, you’re happy to read?


I am neither Goldilocks nor the Princess and the Pea. I can read anywhere, anytime, in any situation - unless the light is bad, in which case I become The Beast (only without his more attractive qualities...)

Oh I am one of those that can pick up a book and read anywhere, anytime, any lighting (as long as I have my handy dandy booklight when it gets to dark.)

My Husband is the same way!
The only difference between us when reading is I actually notice when the dog is chewing on the cat!

I don't even notice the sun going down and the room becoming dark! My husband will come in and say, "Why are you reading in the dark??" Which is also what my mother used to say, so it's sort of disconcerting. :)

I can read anywhere and pick up right where I left off, even though I'm usually reading 3 or 4 at a time. But I do notice the world around & get off the subway at the right stop, though I might not have noticed the interim ones - don't know how the brain does that but it does.
This is a neat blog, I'm adding it to my favorite's list and will return frequently.
