But I love those relaxing commutes with a good book. Huge comfy sofa with hot choclate I love to. my father screaming at me to put the damned book down and go out and play ball. I . for or eating my dinner. When I read paper books I would wear a Petzl headlamp while I ate. almost no light. I prefer to read a "real" book at home, in bed, under the covers, after all. just a dream, really! My room + being alone + food + book = bliss. My ultimate reading environment would be at home. not to distract me from becoming immersed in whatever book I’m reading Not asking for much, am I. is while travelling that my hunger for books morphs into a giant monster.. My ideal reading environment is probably different . alone, so I just sat down and read my book anyway. But my ultimate reading environment would be on.
