I love reading in a big, squishy, comfy chair with a soft blanket, a good reading light, and a place to set down my cup of tea. Absent of said comfy chair (which I WILL own one day), I like to curl up on the couch with all those other things. Most important, however, is a QUIET place. Most often, I have a hard time tuning out background noise when I'm reading. Sometimes I wear headphones and play classical music, and that helps, but what I really want is silence.

When I was a little girl, I could read just about anywhere. I didn't get motion sickness. I was able to concentrate when there was background noise (within reason). Now that I'm a big girl, not so much. I get motion sickness very easily, and even reading for a short time if I'm not stationary is enough to make me feel extremely ill. But, it's actually not that big a loss since I do 95% of the driving any time I go anywhere anyway.

I like reading in bed. :) Unfortunately, I can't read in buses or cars (I don't know about trains) because I get motion sickness.

I can't do anything in a car. my head hurts within a few minutes. my reading spot is usually in a papisan chair next to our fireplace. it is quite wonderful.

No favorite place, especially since I don't have room for a reading chair, but the best place is my living room sofa - and I can sneak a peak on tv at the same time *lol* :)

I can read on a train or subway, not on a bus or a car, I get sick.

The place I read the most is the subway, but my favorite is a garden when the weather is sunny.
Or my bed. Beds are cool.

I find it hard to concentrate in public places, like subways or the bus. I love reading in my living room, on the comfy couch. If sunlight happens to beam through the window, it's a plus. :)

I like reading in bed or comfortable chairs. I can't read on a moving vehicle because I would get motion sickness.

My bed, or my couch. I can read on public transport, I don't get sick.
