I don’t know about you, but I’ve been reading up a storm during the quarantine. So I thought I would share my favorite places for quarantine reading! [I hope you enjoy my immense artistic talents on display. My sister says my tableaux look like a depression commercial, but that’s on brand.]
1. The Couch
Is there anything better than curling up with a good book, a crisp seltzer, and a cozy blanket on the couch?
2. The Other Couch
Even your favorite couch gets old. Mix it up and switch to the other couch (you know, the couch you found in the back alley, and you should get rid of it, but it’s an antique and it’s not too uncomfortable).
3. The Armchair
Seems cozy until your legs go numb. Try hanging upside down from the chair. 10/10 would recommend
4. The Kitchen
Reading in the kitchen is the best. Snacks are just an arm length away. You can grab an ice-cold seltzer from the fridge. I definitely recommend a book while mindlessly stirring your risotto.
5. The Toilet
Hide from the world in the bathroom with a good book. Reading on the toilet is A+. Don’t stay too long though; your bootyhole will thank you.
6. The Bed
Reading in bed is not only for bedtime. Crawl in, snuggle up, and try not to fall asleep.
7. The Backyard
Vitamin-D! Yes, please. If you are lucky enough to have a backyard during quarantine, soak up the sun with your favorite novel. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
8. The Dining Room Table
Take yourself on a date. Set the table, plate your favorite meal, pour out a seltzer, and pick up a new book. You can pretend you are checking out the hottest new restaurant in town.
9. The Hallway Floor
When you get bored of your go-to reading spots, try out the hallway floor. Stick your legs up on the wall in Viparita Karani pose (or as I like to call it legs-on-the-wall pose); your hamstrings and lower back will thank you. [FYI legs-on-the-wall pose is my favorite yoga pose and my only yoga pose.]
10. The Closet
When the world gets heavy, revert to the womb of your house — your closet. Take some deep breaths, grab a comforting book, and hide from the world among your clothes.
