Monday Musings is a weekly post in which I talk about whatever I would like to talk about. Often it's book related. Sometimes it's not.
Most of the time I read on my couch in the living room. I sit with my feet on the table, of I lay down. Because I've waited for everyone else to go to bed so that I can get some quiet reading in.
I also do a fair amount of reading in my classroom. I try to model reading with my students during their silent reading. They see me reading something and actively interacting with a book. I cry when it makes me cry, I laugh out loud, I gasp. I very pointedly get up every so often to look up a new word (or one I sometimes pretend is new) and then share it with everyone. I sit in different spots so some of my friends get a really good reminder of what's expected during silent reading time (silence and reading). :)
Those are my spots. They aren't really particularly special or cozy. I wish I had a little nook. I would totally make that my own. Actually. Maybe I'll work on making one. I have the perfect spot--except for Christmas time. It's where our tree goes. Hmmmm. Lots to think on!
What about you? Do you have a dedicated reading spot? A cozy little nook? I'd love to see your cozy little nooks if you have some to share.
