Posted by The Carbonated Scholar

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.
