Reading and eating are two of my favourite things - why not do them together!
I know lots of people like to read in bed. As a rule I'm not one of them. My shoulder gets cold, my arm gets stiff, my fingers get sore, the pillows slip, the book's too big, the sheets get wrinkled, the light's not good enough. Mostly when I finally get to bed I just want to go to sleep!
As a digitally published author, you'd think I'd use my Kindle all the time. I don't. It's usually buried at the bottom of my handbag under countless other things I rarely use and never quite manage to unearth. Shame on me.
I'm ashamed to tell you what else I found at the bottom of my handbag.
I prefer to read curled up in a chair, or on the couch with my feet on the coffee table or in a sunny spot in winter, sometimes outside in summer. Or you might find me with my nose buried in a book at the breakfast or dinner table. I know, it's terribly unmannerly but reading and eating are two of my favourite things - why not save time and do them both together? (In case you're wondering, did I use the excuse of a photo shoot to cook myself a yummy breakfast? Absolutely!).
