We all have those go to places that we feel the most comfortable. Places that clear our minds and make us feel at home. Here are some of my favorite places to read a great book!
1. The coffee shop
There is nothing like being surrounded by the smell of coffee and holding a book in your hand. The light and comfortable air of a cosy coffee shop makes me feel warm and light for a good read. Going out to read In a coffee shop doesn’t happen often, but when it does, the feeling is magical.
I never feel more in tune with myself then when I am at the park. I can see myself, sitting in a nook of a tree reading a book as its pages are illuminated by the sunlight. It’s where I feel my soul connected with the earth.
On my way home from school I will have a book in my hand from where I sit in the back seat. Reading in the car will be a time in my life I will treasure. One day I no longer will be able to.
IKEA is like a secret meeting place. A place where you can go from room to room to settle in and relax. The eating area has always felt cosy to me. I love to bring a book to IKEA.
This never happens except in my dreams. The soft lullaby of the ocean waves as I curl up in a towel on its sandy beach and read a book under the protection of an umbrella.
