I don’t know about you but I used to love hitting the hay when I was a teenager. I didn’t go to bed to sleep, though; I was a reader. A read-past-lights-out reader, with a torch under the duvet, promising myself I would go to sleep as soon I reached the end of the bit that had me in its clutches.
Fast forward to today and I still love my bed. It’s still the place I do most of my reading, although I don’t have a torch under the covers any more – no one is going to tell me off for staying up late with a book. And I love my bed even more today because I have moved bedrooms and got a brand new mattress. I’ve also got a new duvet, bed linen and pillows. And, as you’ll see from the photo below, I’ve got fairy lights too.
My bed is important to me not just because it’s my number-one spot to read, but because I do a lot of writing there too. Late night writing. Fall asleep over the keyboard writing. Wake up to see I’ve typed qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq instead of actual writing. (I genuinely did doze off just then – these are authentic typos.)
So I thought I would make it into a lovely space in which to spend my time. Hence the new mattress (to help with my Writer’s Back) and the sheets etc. The trouble is, I’ve made it so appealing that I don’t really want to leave: the mattress is soft and comfortable.
I suppose it’s a good job my To-Be-Read pile is so enormous, eh? Because I may be here sometime…
How about you? Where do you like to read?
PS This is my last Girls Heart Books post before the site closes. Goodbye from me and thanks for reading!
