RCC [Challenge 2]: Cuddle Up With a Book

This is the second challenge for the  Review Copy Clean-up Challenge that I'm participating in for the month of March.This challenge is being hosted by Nyx Book Reviews and Books, Biscuits & Tea.

This challenge is fairly easy, you just take a picture of your favorite spot to read and tell everyone some of your reading habits.Simple and straight forward.

So my favorite place to read (right now) is in my daughter's room. Why? The love seat in there is amazingly comfortable and my husband isn't trying to talk to me in there. I can't read in the living room since there are too many distractions, normally the tv is on when my husband is home. I can't read with the tv blaring, so that also means I don't listen to music. All I need to read happily for a few hours is a quiet, comfortable place.

When my baby is sleeping for the night, I can't really go in her room to read. So I'll lay in bed and read, but this normally happens:

I'm not sure how she thinks that this helps me read my review books faster..

Finally, since Vicky shared her lovely, organized bookshelf. Here's a picture of my extremely disorganized bookshelf. Why so disorganized? My daughter feels it is her duty to reorganize, buy this I mean rip every single book of the shelf if mom forgets to close her bedroom door. Thankfully, we are moving at the end of the month and our new bedroom has 3 closets (3?!  I know right?) So I'm stealing one closet for myself and my books. Then I just have to remember to close the closet door all the time, I'll also be getting a new bookshelf, because as you can tell, I kind of need one.
 Where is your favorite spot to read?

  1. Wow, your daughter's bedroom does look cozy! And I know, I can't read with the TV on or people talking next to me either :( I've always envied people who can, though.

    And 3 closets?! Wow! I hope you'll have a new bookshelf soon, yay!

  3. I read on my couch or be also :P

    I can't read in complete silence but with much noise either. I need a bookshelf too. Mine all sit on my ledge in my apartment. Since the basements are the only onethat have that edge going around it comes in handy :)

    1. It would be handy, but I'm sad for you. I'm not sure about the building you are in, but the one I used to live in beside it floods terribly in the basement in the spring, It's so awful. :( Hope that doesn't happen in your building!

  5. I live by myself so don't have to escape anyone to read but I know it's hard to concentrate when other people are always after your attention. Looks comfy in there though :)

  6. Ohh I love that love seat! It looks extremely comfortable. I wouldn't mind curling up with a book there!

    Haha, it looks like you've outgrown your bookshelf there. A nice big closet of books sounds awesome (: Thanks for sharing your favourite place to read.
