All this set me wondering about places where books are read. As a child growing up in Africa, I climbed the trees in my yard and pulled up my books on a specially devised pulley system. The mulberry tree was especially handy as I could snack on fruit in season. When we visited my grandparents in England I loved sitting upstairs with a book in the window seat of their two hundred year old house.
A friend relates with a smile how, as a child, she read on a platform under the water tank on the roof of her house. Another friend’s teenage son read in the shower- he braced his back against one side on the shower, his legs on the other and stuck his head, one arm and book out of the shower.
I’ve compiled a list of favorite spots from readers all over the world.
