Yes.. bathtub reading was a favourite passtime. Unfortunately, I can no longer read without my glasses, so that has put paid to my bathtime reading.

Heck ya! I read every time! Of course, then I tend to stay in the tub WAY too long. But the book was just so good!!

What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

I'm PRETTY clumsy, so while I think it would be super relaxing to light some candles, take a bubblebath and read, in reality I would probably catch something on fire, or drop my book in the tub. :roll2: :doh: :lol:

Yes. It is worth the risk of a slightly damp book. :D

I have always read in the bath. Paper, e-reader, tablet ... I've taken all of them into the soapy relaxation of a bath at one point or another.

No I don't read while I take a bath. I am always afraid that I am going to drop the book in the water, or if I tried to use my kindle then I wouldn't want to destroy it. I do listen to music though.

All the time! But I only do it with pulpy novels/books I don't really care about because the steam tends to warp the pages.

Definitely! My fiancé has made me a bathtub tray repurposed from free pallets and it sits perfectly across my jacuzzi tub, topped with candles. I'm pretty clumsy so I set my kindle on it and keep my hands off until I need to turn the page.

It looks similar to this:

KimBOOP, that's really cool! I don't bring books in the bathroom but if I had that contraption and a jacuzzi, I will most definitely read in there.

This site is a fun place, isn't it?
