Every other Thursday here at the Broke & The Bookish is A Cocktail & Conversation time. One of the TBTB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.
Where in the world would you most want to read? (For instance, I want to read at a sidewalk cafe in Paris) Feel free to attach pictures!
Bridget says: I want to read in a reading nook like the one below. I don't care where it is (although I'd prefer it was in my house, obviously). I just want to cuddle up among all those pillows and read for hours.
Bridget's Ideal Reading Nook:
Jana says: First of all, I LOVE Bridget's reading nook picture! I'd love one of those! My favorite place to read is on a boat, or by the water. I love the breeze, the smell, and the water sounds!
Tahleen says: I'd love to go back to Kauai and read there again. I mean, nothing to do with the reading really, but location is everything. This is Tunnels Beach, and those mountains are incredible. (I will forever be talking about Hawaii, and I'm
Hummm Honestly one of the best days of reading I ever had was on a cruise ship. I loved our room.. it had a balcony and I would sit out there and read while the ocean was right over the balcony. I just loved it. Though I won't do a cruise again (I felt trapped on that ship) I won't forget the wonderful balcony!ReplyDelete
Angela's Anxious Life
My favorite place ever was on my suite balcony in Santorini, Greece overlooking the caldera with a glass of chilled local white wine in hand. I love the Paris cafe idea but I think I would be too distracted by people watching. I am also desperate to go to Kauai (maybe next year?)ReplyDelete
Beach reading in the sun is the absolute best! We went to a couples' resort in the Bahamas for our honeymoon and while hubs dived, I got to relax and read. It was fantastic! I'd also take a cozy nook for cold or rainy days :)ReplyDelete
I'm definitely more of a nook girl than an on-location girl. It needs a safe place to set a drink, though... even if it will sit forgotten once I lose myself in my book.ReplyDelete
During the summer I love reading at the beach. The pool is nice too, but not quite the same. The beach has the sounds of the waves rolling on shore and seagulls flying above. Plus, I love the multitasking of reading and tanning.ReplyDelete
However, there's nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good book. I love a cozy atmosphere while reading. Comfy couch, soft throw, and the slow trickle of raindrops.
The pool! which reminds me I need to get a new comfy floaty for this summer, almost here :)ReplyDelete
I've been to Kauai and it is amazing so keep talking about it and never feel bad about it, everyone should go there once at least! My favorite spot would have to be the nook for sure but let's put that nook in a gazebo on the beach. I don't care what beach as long as it's perfectly serene.ReplyDelete
Ahhh you know what I love? Those hanging beds that are covered in throws and pillows and surrounded by gossamer curtains. THAT would be my ideal reading place. :) From what I have now, my bed is perfect, because it's always covered in pillows and my Anthropologie comforter is absolutely divine! :)ReplyDelete
GREAT question, Lori, and I love your answers, ladies :)
Sierra @ Yearning to Read
As long as it's comfortable and cozy, I'd be happy in it! Though I've been eyeing those Fatboys and they seem like an awesome reading spot!ReplyDelete
I love the nook picture, and the sidewalk cafe as well! My ideal reading place would be one of those cozy, warm libraries with a fire going and some hot cocoa in my hands. *Sighs* But for now, my favorite place to read is in the backyard on our patio swing on a warm summer evening with the fireflies flying around, with a light breeze going. It just feels so magical.ReplyDelete
I LOVE that reading nook! I must have one!ReplyDelete
