I normally read indoors, but I pretty much switched to outdoors when i got my paperwhite. I love the sun on my face

This one is definitely easy for me - I typically very much dislike the outdoors! Bad weather, bright sun or dark night, bugs... No thanks, indoors please!

I love reading anywhere. but if I must specify, I will say that I love reading indoors more because it's less distracting.

Team Indoors Vs Team Outdoors.
Honestly, for me it doesn't matter where I'm at; as long as I'm comfortable and it is not too noisy. Those are my only requirements. Comfort first, then anything else can follow.

Outdoors definitely. I love the sunshine and fresh air and my secret garden is so serene that I almost read better when I'm seated out there. Plus all the butterflies and hummingbirds fly right up to me. Love it!

I do both, but I prefer indoor reading because there's less distraction and I concentrate more but I love both.

I agree. There are times where I can't read properly at home, either because of my cat or other factors, so I'll evacuate to the nearest park.

In spring and summer when it is nice out I prefer to read outdoors to get a breath of fresh air. In the winter, I will read indoors

Indoors. I get distracted easily outside and it makes me feel uncomfortable when people look at me while I read. I most prefer to read inside my room because it is quiet and calming.

Whereas I can read a good book out doors without being distracted, I prefer reading indoors because I don't attract unnecessary attention indoors

I prefer reading indoors for two reasons. First, there are less bugs out for my blood. It's like they know I'm scared of them, and they like to feed of my fear. Second, I get cold easily, so I like to cuddle underneath a warm blanket.

Outdoors in a hammock can't be beat. Curled up in bed is second.

I’ll read anywhere! But in summer, I prefer reading in the backyard, on the dock, or on the beach. In winter, I prefer reading next to a crackling fire or somewhere cozy.

I don't mind I can read anywhere provided my interest is in the book.
