I am a indoor reader.
I live close to a airport so sometimes its a bit loud outside. that its Washington and right now its threating to snow.
so I think indoors for sure I can get nice and warm and drink hot coco and focus on the book.

I really like to read outside. I also really like reading when I can see outside, especially when its bad weather and I can just curl up and read a book to make some time pass.
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over.
Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

Reading outside in the snow is a wonderful experience! It is so ridiculously peaceful! :D

depends on the time of year. If it is warm out I will read outside while my bunnies play. However if it is below 70 degree I will be inside reading. I cannot take the cold.

I'm an indoor person. When I first moved to Washington State from Florida people were like.. no you're not from Florida you're pale. I think I was always meant to live here. haha. Granted it is enjoyable to just sit outside and take in a little light now and then... need that vitamin D.
I love LOVE. <3

Indoors! Going out to read is hard. I get distracted easily. Even if I'm at a coffee shop that has a homey vibe, I couldn't read still.

I prefer to read indoors :-)

Indoors thank you. I have neither the opportunity or the desire to read books anywhere else.

I do tend to read indoors by a reading lamp, particularly since I like to read at night. However, I will sometimes read in the backyard on a sunny day. There's nothing like natural sunlight when reading :)

Mostly indoors because it is a bit quieter and more comfortable. But if I am out by the pool or the beach, a book is a must!!

I mostly read indoors (mostly because it's the Winter time here all the freakin time) I really want to read on a barn for some reason.
