my mother always reminded me that i should not read a book while lying in bed... because i might hurt my eye...do you agree with that? what is your reading position?

Poster doesn't matter if you enjoy the book. You might enjoy reading even standing in a train!!! But if your eyes hurt and you don't get any satisfaction out of reading discontinue it. I personally read in whatever ambiance, time or poster it suits me. Books fill up a gap in my life and help me building up my thought process. Though I shouldn't do so, but I don't care about anything while reading if and only if the book provides me some matter to think upon and if its a page turner and truly after completing such books I regret that its finished and want even more

I've heard that advice from my own mother over and over. Unfortunately, I don't really listen much to her advice..LOL.. My favorite position when reading is in bed. I will be laying down, my head prop with some pillow, and will be reading until the wee hours of the morning. Although, I can pretty much read in any position, for me that is the most comfortable position. I cannot read for long while sitting up. As time progresses, I will be slouching, or if i'm on the couch, I will be laying down. Oh, well...I guess..I'm just a disobedient little girl..LOL..

I have been taught to read while sitting down with the back straight up and the shoulders not slumped. I have grown accustomed and comfortable in this position that up to now it is still my favourite position. Maybe the talk about reading position and the eyes is true. I still do not require the aid of reading glasses even though I am fast approaching 50. all the best, rosdimy
