Let's file that little piece of information under the heading, "Duh."
I will literally read anytime, anywhere under any circumstances.
One such time actually caused me to have a lingering fear of fire. I was a teenager and the power is out. I don't remember what book I was reading, but I remember that I was at a really good part and did not want to stop. I was not going to let a little power outage stopped me. My mom had lit some candles and I was holding one next to me so I could see my book. I must have been holding the candle a little too close to my head because suddenly, my hair was on fire.
Luckily, my stepfather noticed quicker than I did and he was able to put it out pretty quickly. But now, I am scared of fire. And candles. I try to keep myself a safe distance from all flames. That's probably a good thing anyway, right?
I also insist on reading when I have a migraine. My husband told me other day NOT to read because my head was really hurting and it would hurt my eyes. But what did I do the second he turned his back? Yep, picked up my book.
There has been one time where I just was not able to read and that was on a flight home from Italy to the United States. We were going through some pretty bad turbulence. And I mean bad. The plane was shaking and there were a couple of times where the plane actually dipped and it felt like we were in free fall for a second and like we were going to crash. That has been the one and only time where the circumstances were just too extreme for me to read.
I guess feeling like I am going to die is a real mood killer.
So can you read anytime and anywhere? Do you read while you are sick? Any fun stories about the lengths you would go to in order to read a book?
