Throne and bath (on the rare occasion I get a chance to), I frequently end up sat in cold water if I get engrossed.

Pro Tip - Leave a towel within arms reach in the tub, means you can wash yourself and dry your hands for more reading!

Yes, and thus I read in the elevator, at red lights (was that you honking at me??), while waiting for coffee to brew or the microwave to finish. I wish I could find a way to fold laundry and read.....

What I do is prop my 505 where I can see it and turn the page between items.

You can combine reading with most housework. It takes longer but it's a lot more enjoyable. Audio books are the best for washing up though

That would never work for me.

I already have to use MR as a "carrot" to get my housework done. You know.........

"First I clean the kitchen, then I can log in"

"Oops, first the laundry/ironing, THEN MR........"

"No, first make dinner for the husband........THEN MR............"

How do you read and fold at the same time? Do you know what my towels, and 'delicates' would look like?

If I couldn't read at the same time I'd probably never do housework

I think the main thing is that I'm not fussy about how long it takes if I'm reading. But I do also listen to audio books and radio dramas if I'm in a hurry, have lots to do or think my book/505 might get wet.

But as I'm writing I have just realised that I could put my reader in its aquapac which I use for the bath/shower and then be able to turn the page whilst doing the washing up

Me too! Didn't realise how much I needed it until I got it.

And I will definitely be trying the washing up thing tomorrow.

Absolutely, i read in the bath. I read anywhere I can get a minute or two. The bath tub is a favorite of mine. Taking an idea from a Mobile Reader I use a large zip lock to protect my reader when I'm in the tub.
