Happy World Book Night!

23 Apr

I have a thing for books. You may have noticed by now. Maybe. So, World Book Night is an event I can get behind! Volunteers will be passing out copies of bestselling, awesome books at various locations across the USA tonight. I am a bit late to the party, so I won’t be able to volunteer, but I will make sure to curl up with a good book and savor the whole reading experience.

And what makes a perfect reading experience? I’m so glad you asked:

1. Blanket.
Sunday morning

Make sure it’s cozy and will cover your feet. You don’t want to waste valuable reading time trying to stretch a blanket over your toes.

2. Hot drink on a cold day or a cold drink on a hot day.


I have a particular love of English breakfast tea with milk on cold, rainy days (especially if you add an English biscuit or two to make it more authentic!). On hot days, lemonade on ice is perfect. Or a gin and tonic with a twist of lime. Mix alcohol with books at your own discretion. You don’t want to end up being the person drunkenly sobbing over Beth dying in Little Women. Believe me on this one.

3. Location, location, location
People have different ideal reading locations, and that’s cool…but as far as I’m concerned, if you can’t stretch your legs out, it’s not the IDEAL location. Big chair with table in front so you can put up your feet, even if it’s not very polite — awesome. Long, comfy couch for maximum stretching out abilities — BAM. Reading stretched out on a lawn in front of a tree — Perfect, in a very college promotional brochure style. Stretch out. You’re going to be here for a while.

4. Read. Read, read, read. Lose yourself and be happy.
a woman is a woman.

And remember:
A simple rule

    As a fellow book worm, I *heart* this post! The last one made me literally lol, but mostly I just want to go home and curl up with a good book, a comfy blanket, a fire, a warm cup of something and a fuzzy lump (a dog or two).

Give me a shout!
