The question has been posed:
“Where’s your favorite place to read a book?”
Sometimes I like a wide open space,
And other times I like a nice cozy nook.
In a chair at the beach,
with my toes dug deep in the sand.
Sitting at a table in Starbucks,
with a green tea frappuccino in hand.
Relaxing at the local library,
with the quiet stillness to manage.
Eating lunch at Panera Bread,
with a soup, salad, or cafe sandwich.
Lying on my living room couch,
with a floor lamp’s light over me.
Curled up on my queen-size bed,
with a nice hot cup of herbal tea.
These are just a few
of my favorite places to read.
But anywhere I can enjoy a book,
would be perfectly okay with me.
