Feature Follow Friday: Favorite Outdoor Reading Spot

5:26 PM

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!


Spring is in the air! Show off your favorite outdoors reading spot. If you don’t go outside…well where else do you read that isn’t inside your house? We want pics!

The Beach

So I don't really read outside much since I'm a homebuddy and prefer the privacy of my own room, but part from the house, one of my favorite places to go to would be the ocean! Ever since I was a kid the ocean has always been my favorite place and I would keep nagging my parents to take me to the beach. I just love swimming so much and the feel of the ocean breeze is absolutely fantastic. This is the seaside in my home province where I grew up, and we always come here during Sundays to go walking. Sometimes I'd take a book with me and read for a bit. This is definitely a great place that is serene and beautiful!

The Coffee Shop

For me, the coffee shop is the best place besides my house, to read a good book. When I read a book, I want the place to be quiet and peaceful. Plus, I love the smell of coffee! It's pretty relaxing to read in a place where there are comfy couches, and good drinks. The feeling when you slouch down on a soft chair, inhaling the scent of coffee and drinking your favorite frappe while reading your favorite book is simply magical.

The Dentist's Waiting Room

I usually read books at home but when I do read books outside, it's mostly because I was anticipating a long wait. I don't like the awkward silence whenever I am in the dentist's waiting room. All those people waiting for the dentist to place a sharp, shiny, metal object in their mouth + silence + air conditioning= awkward, cold silence with random people surrounding you. To avoid this awkwardness, I bring a book and read there. It's actually nice since it's quiet and cold. No one will disturb you because there's this unspoken rule that you avoid eye contact and ignore the person next to you whoe waiting at the dentist's waiting room (or is that just me?).

  2. I love the ocean! I live in Nova Scotia, which is a peninsula and it has always just been a hop, skip and a jump away. Coffee shops are pretty great too but the good seats are always taken =/. Surprisingly, I have spent way too much time in the dentist office lately. I took it as an opportunity to break in my kobo.

  3. Great places to read books. I sometimes read at my doctor's waiting room too. Sometimes I have to wait for five hours and reading makes time go faster. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  10. Agree with the beach and the coffee shop. Gosh, there is just something about a coffee shop which makes it the perfect venue for readers and writers. I try to avoid dentists at all costs and would be way to nervous to read there unfortunately :( but will read when I have to wait at the doctors / hair dressers etc.

  11. I've never been to the ocean, it looks so beautiful! As long as there isn't a ton of people, it sound like a peaceful place to read.
    I don't like coffee, but I absolutely love the smell of it! I'm going to have to experience reading with one of my favorite smells surrounding me, LOL!
    I avoid the dentist as much as possible. I usually end up have an anxiety attack whenever I go. Not fun at all.
