Arrow When, where, and in which position do you read?

When? One or two hours before finally sleeping.

Where? In bed.

How? I lie on my back and hold my KT up with one or both hands. Something I never did with paperback books because it was too inconvenient for turning pages or the book flipping shut! Sometimes I still lie on my side, but that got sort of rare.

Actually, sometimes I do wonder if that much wider bezel of the B&N Nook Touch wouldn't be easier to grab, especially when holding it with one hand. There are several strong reasons why I prefer the Kobo Touch over the Nook Touch, but a wider bezel would be better to hold, although a thin bezel looks way better, I think.

Lol I must resist the urge to hijack this thread and send it in a direction that was never intended!...
Anyway,

When?1: Lunchtime, 2: After Evening meal, 3: Bedtime.

Where?1: At my desk, 2: On the sofa or armchair, 3: in the bed.

Position? 1: Sitting in my workchair holding up with my hand, 2: more or less the same but in a sofa, 3: Laying back holding up with my hand over my eyes with the sidelamp on. I swap hands occasionally when the hand holding my KT gets tired.

i read on and off all day - on the loo, at cuppa time, when I need to sit down, and before sleeping.

I read on the patio, in front of the TV in the ad breaks, in the bathroom, in bed, the doctors waiting room, while travelling.

I sit it on my chubby tum, whether in bed or lounging in a chair. It's in a booklike case, so I hold the cover with the left hand, and change pages with my right thumb..

Daily on my commute to work and back home. It's so much easier than having a real book on a bus. Can only use one hand, much smaller, no need to worry about keeping the page, or flipping pages... I've managed to go from a chapter a week, to about 100-200 pages a week.

I read any time, any where. My Kobo Touch travels with me; in the car it sits in in a small compartment on the drivers side door, so is handy for when we stop for errands.

It's great for coffee shops, snacks while out, all that type of thing.

I used to have one, but then I moved away.

Now I have a waterfront park with about 400 reading trees.
But, as nice as it is, it's simply not the same as having that one special little tree. Plus I have to share these 400 trees with others, so I can't always pick the same one either...
