For me, I really like the feeling of spending whole day in the library reading something I like, even addicted to it. I like the atmosphere in the library, everyone is studying, it is so quiet and appropriate to do some reading. I love to stay at the library. What about you?

I seldom read in the library, since I love to have a cup of coffee while I enjoy my book. I love to curl up in bed or on the sofa to read too. The library simply does not have the comfort level of home. However I love the atmosphere in the library for study purpose, especially in the reference section, where all the thick and expensive reference books are located. I think some of those books must cost more than a hundred buck per book, and I usually grab a few for comparison.

It has been like 10years since the last time I visited the library. I prefer to buy a new book and read it at home. You can't lie down and read in the library, can you? Hehe...

There is a reading room in our community center. There I can enjoy the cool air, leisurely reading magazines, and newspapers. There are also reading materials for the blind, and of course for the children. Reading helps us to developing our intelligence, and also upgrading personality.

Yes in fact, for me, that's the best place I would ever be during my school days. I love and like libraries much more than any other places in the school...I like because it's peace and quite, lots of stuff to view or to read..and whole lot more...

I used to love going to the library when I was younger and had more time to relax and do my own thing - since now working full time and having a home to clean and other stuff like that I find it easier to relax in my spare room which I have made into a relaxtion room where I have bookcases and a sofa to go and read in peace and quiet !

I like to read at home, where I can stop and get a drink or enjoy a snack while I read. For me the library is just not as comfortable.

Yes, I am like you too. I like the environment in the library. The Public Library in my City is very big, and there are lots of room for relaxing and reading books of one's choice. I would spend hours, when I have the time, in the library reading books, magazines, and information pamphlets too. I do that mostly during long holidays.

I really enjoy the atmospheres of libraries too, but I personally love to read in my own room. I love the relaxing feeling of snuggling in my bed with the warm covers and escaping into my own little world. I personally just like the privacy so that no one can distract me! In addition, I also enjoy reading at cafes sometimes too when I am feeling a little more social, because a nice cup of coffee is always a great compliment to reading a good book.

For leisure reading I prefer being at home where I can get comfy in my pjs, make a hot cup of tea and curl up in my reading chair. I can listen to music, adjust the temperature, grab a bite to eat and just unwind with having to worry about losing my seat if I get up for something, finding a seat to began with that's half way decent, or people talking, kids running around or sick people. Some of that is admittedly only at a public library. For research I do like the option of going to the university library, but even then I still prefer going home so that I have all my 'research tools' at hand without having to take them to the library. And there's something about the lighting in most libraries. Florescent lights give me headaches.

It is comfortable to read in the library I think. The peaceful air makes me feel calm down, and I like this feeling. I usually can find something interesting there to read and worth spending time on. Besides, it is bright in the library, which can light my heart.

I like it too. Although I almost pass by the library of campus every day I see many students are reading, I can't go into it because I'm not a student any more. I'm hastily pass by the library when I go to work, and I'm tired when I come back and watch the lights in the library, I miss the feeling of reading in the library. I miss when I was a student. I remember many students like save a seat with books in the library of college. Well, I have also done.:)

I often visit the library, but I usually borrow the books that I am interested in and read them at home. I like to read in many different places: On the couch in the livingroom, in my bed, in the kitchen, on the bus, in the garden etc. I love reading and I often bring a book or two when I am going somewhere. Sometimes I read at the library, for instanse if I want to use some of the books that we are not allowed to borrow. In the past I sometimes studied at the library instead of my home, because my home was too crowded or noisy, but that is not the case any longer, and now it is easy for me to read or study at home.
