I find the best time to read is when no one is here and it's quiet and I can sit and get in a comfortable,relaxing position.Put subliminal tapes or music with no words on.Light lavender oil or other relaxing scents of candles or oil.Drink camomile tea,that is calming. When do you like to read? What atmosphere do you feel comfortable in to read and concintrate?

Hello You want too much to read. For me when I have time I can read any where, but I cannot read in journey. Music is good thing for concentration.

Hello dfollin! I like to read between after lunch and late afternoon. I don't like to read at night because my tired eyes will give me a headache when i get up in the morning. But If i urge to read at night, it won't be too long..

Yes, that's when I would enjoy reading too. After a long stressful day at work, after I get back home, I would stretch out on the couch in the family room, relax, and browse the magazines and read my favorite books with no one around to disturb at all. That has become my favorite way of relaxation at the end of the day.

That would put me to sleep and not read at all. I like to read when i'm alone in the house and nobody's here to bother me especially when i'm at the point of climaxing! And i'm referring to the story. Reading is one of my hobbies and i just don't want to be disturbed when i'm at it.

Whole day is best time to read, if you love reading and have access to read good books. I have changed over to audio books. 3 out of 4 books I read are audio books. When I wake up I start hearing. While brushing, while in Toilet I thus read. While doing my breakfast, while commuting. while waiting for the bus i read. while returning fom job. In the evening. after going to bed also , I listen to audibooks, thus I read whole day. Anytime is good if you have intrest.

Amen to that. I do not really like to read much. I have to have total silence when reading also.

I have a number of books downloaded onto my iPhone, and I enjoy reading at the coffee shop in the afternoons. There are some programs on TV that my husband does not like, so when they are on, I go out for coffee!

That sounds really nice, but I haven't had time to sit down and read like that for ages. I still read, just more on-the-go kind of reading. I carry a book with me everywhere I go and I read at the train station, on the train, when I'm waiting for something, and then maybe a little bit of time before bed. Anytime's a great time to read for me, I don't think that I'm all that picky about when and where.

I prefer reading in the evening.At that time,it was quiet and no body disturb me,so i could absorb me in the context.It's such an amazing thing that i find myself fit it in the articles.The atmosphere is so warm.i love reading.

From the time that I was a young girl and now that I am the mother of two small children myself, I've always read during two times. I read every night before I turn off the lights to go to sleep. In addition to that, I also love to run a hot bubble bath and relax in the tub with a good book. These are, in my opinion, the two best places and times to read. I just pray that paper books stay available because I certainly don't want to have to take an ebook reader in the bathroom.

Any time that I can manage to get away for a few minutes, that to me is a really good time to read. Of course, that is something that might tend to vary to say the very least. There are times where its a nice sunny day so I head outside in the back, put on the radio outdoors with some music for about an hour and do or just kick back, relax, and unwind. However most certainly there are just a lot of times where I just am in bed at night, right before heading off to sleep. There are times where a book does a great deal to really ease my nerves. Many times where it is really just takes me a lot time to really get off to bed otherwise. However just sitting back, back on pillows, legs crossed, in the light, reading, for about forty minutes or whatever, before I head off to bed. That to me is one of the best times to read.

I need silence to relax and read. Reading takes some concentration for me. It's not one of those things I can multi task while doing. I enjoy reading most when I'm home alone and can just have the bedroom or living room couch to myself. I typically lay down to read, it helps relax me. I also tend to read a lot before bed. Reading before bed helps me get sleepy!

I think the midnight is perfect time for reading. It's quite, make you concentrate easily. In the exam time, I always study in the night However, my master always says that the morning is the best time for reading because it' s the moment your head is empty and the information could be got easily and effectively

I can't really say if I have a favorite time to read. Granted I do enjoy reading, when things are quiet. It does seem to help and make things easier. But it's not the only time when I like to read. I don't think that there's necessarily a specific time, when I prefer to read.

Personally, the time to read anything is the midnight when I can best focus on.

hi there dfollin, with regards to your main topic discussion, there is no specific time for me to read. as long as i have my gizmo with me plus having a wifi, i find it interesting to read. with this gizmo, my interest in reading arises. though, i am not discrediting the fact that it is indeed a great time if i read inside my room, wherein, the place for me is truly comfortable and concentrating.

i loved to read when i have nothing else to do.. it keeps me out of boredom.. i seldom read books now a days, probably because during my college days i was so focus at it.. but there's one instance in my life wherein i was accepted to a job wherein i have to move to new place and in my new place i have no TV, no computer and i all have was novels given to me by friend because she pitied me of having nothing to entertain me... during that time, i really enjoyed reading..
