Reading



Wow what better way to relax than to read a nice book. I find reading so relaxing when I try and read I doze right off. It starts by sitting in a comfortable chair, then thinking it would be even more comfortable to prop my legs up and them boom, I am out. I dont't read much, because when I try and read, I quickly go to sleep.

Today's picture was taken in 1905, and the woman is relaxing in a Pullman berth on a train.

  1. Same here... when I try to curl up with a good book, I'm out like a light! It doesn't help that I struggle to see the small print on printed pages these days. Fortunately, the e-reader, with variable font size has restored my interest and ability to read. I still fall asleep, though.

  2. That looks pretty darn comfy. The clickity clack of the wheels on the track would put me right to sleep. Instead of a relaxing theme this week I'm seeing it trend more towards a nap theme.

  3. Just wait until you hit your 70s. There is nothing better than a good nap after lunch, then a short nap before dinner and finally a presleep nap before you give up and just go on to bed.

    You are right Dave. That fold-out bed does look comfortable.

    1. Al, I like the nap scheduele you layed out here especially the pre sleep nap. Thats funny. My presleep nap is basically falling asleep on the couch watching the game and then around 12, the wife wakes me up and says, "Are you coming to bed?". So basically she wakes me up and tells me to go to sleep. I don't get it. I don't dare question the logic either, I just drag myself to bed.

  4. I read sitting up because reading in bed gives me a back ache.
    I love to read. I can read for hours,if the book is good.

    1. My wife is the same. She reads for hours, I bought her a Kindle for Crismast last year, and my Amazon bill for .99 and some 2.98 books is fairly high. I asked her "What about those free books they talk about", she told me she read them all.

  5. My daughter got me a Nook for Christmas last year, now I tell my kids all I want for my birthday, Mother's day & Christmas is a gift card from Barnes & Noble.

  6. My husband got me some sort of e-reader for Christmas last year. I read two ofthe books onn it, managed to find one I could download (very few mysteries are available) and then forgot about it. Nothing like a good, honest-to-goodness book. Don't need to worry about dropping it, or getting sand in it, or even misplacing it.

    And yes, sleeping on a Pullman is wonderful!

  7. Geez. I'm like you. Reading = sleeping. I'm Tackling "Truman". I'm a very slow reader so this will take some time.

  8. Good old Pullman cars, classy.

    My wife and I both read but we like those things called books! There is something about holding an actually book in your hand that beats a piece of plastic. I even asked my wife if she would like one of those reader things and she said "no way"!

  9. Daughter has a Nook and loves it. I have trifocals and can't stand the thing. I like to fall asleep with my "scholar's mistress" -- the pile of books and magazines that take up one side of my bed!

    1. "Scholars Mistress"....I love that term, though mine sits on the night stand and occasionally spills onto the floor next to the bed.
