Thursday Thirteen

Where and when to read a book . . .

Barn and silo, stylized. This has
nothing to do with reading books.
1. While on hold when you're on the phone.

2. During TV commercials.

3. While you're waiting on the computer to boot up.

4. While you're waiting on cookies (or whatever) to bake.
Hollins University Chapel. This has
nothing to do with reading books.

5. While you're walking on the treadmill.

6. Anytime you're eating at the table.

7. While you're waiting at the doctor's office.

8. While you're waiting in line.

An old farm implement. Also nothing
to do with reading books.
9. While you're in the bathroom doing, well, you know.

10. While you're waiting on a website or whatever to download.

Autumn colors from a previous year.
Also nothing to do with reading books.
11. During TV programs you've already seen.

12. During boring meetings.

13. While you're riding in a car/bus/plane/train/etc.

Where do you read your books?

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 311th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. I read in bed before going to sleep, but I lose interest easily so it usually takes me 6 months to read a book.

  2. On a plane, in bed, on the hammock or some other chair that rocks.

  3. I used to read on planes when I travelled a lot. Now I need to block out some time or I can't focus on the book.

  4. I used to read in all these places. Now I embroider. No wonder I'm not getting enough reading in.

  5. Excellent post, Anita. My reading prettymuch covers everything on your list. I also read in bed at night before going to sleep. Olbrich Botanical Gardens

  6. hm, other than then? I can read in a moving vehicle, unlike some, so, books on the bus. to get the brain booted while waking, or settled to sleep, or while watching hubby paint.

  7. Let's see ~ where don't I read books actually . My favorite places are under a shade tree, in the chair in the garden or while relaxing at a campsite in the mountains ! Thanks so much for asking .

  8. As far as I'm concerned, there is no place inappropriate for book reading.

  9. During boring meetings! lol! That is sooo me.

  10. cute! I read in bed, and I like to read best when I should be going to sleep early or when I should be cleaning house!

  11. I had to learn to read every available moment as the kids were growing up. Then, computers and blogs happened. *sigh* But it's still reading, eh? Mostly I read with my feet up, on the bed.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
