Poll: Do you always read in a chair? I can NOT read in bed!

Lately, I've increased my reading significantly, but noticed I MUST be sitting upright in a chair.  If I dare try to read before bedtime, I'll doze right off .. very annoying if it's only 7:30PM.   Cat Mad

I prefer to read on my living room couch, stretched out with a pillow behind my back. It does not bother me to read in bed, but I tend not to do it. Reading does not make me sleepy,  I tend to loose track of time while reading before bed, or I fall into the trap of telling myself just a little bit more and then before I know it way too much time has passed which is not a good thing when you have to get up for work in the morning.

I’m a reader,  the location is not that important.

Never read in bed....always in a chair.

 

i used to watch tv in bed, but not anymore.   I don't go to bed til I'm ready to sleep.

I've switched gears. I used to read most of the time sitting in a chair. Then it was about even between a chair and in bed, now I most often read in bed.

I do read in a chair, always.  I might read in bed but I haven't a good reading lamp there.

I'm always in the middle of a book. I read everywhere, and I especially like reading when I go to bed. I read on a Kindle, so I don't need the light on, and .I just read till I fall asleep.

I read mostly in bed with my lighted Kindle.   I'll also read at the kitchen table or the sofa in the family room.

Anywhere that is quiet is fine for me! Put a good book in my hands and I'm content! 📖
