Today our special blogger guest is the wonderful Sharon from I Smell Sheep. Sharon is a delight and hosts a unique, extremely active Blog with daily fun and surprises. She is an excellent, committed reviewer. (You really should check out her awesome blog). Sharon is talking about “Seven Days of Blogging”, and I think all us book lovers will relate to her “have book will travel” experience! Be sure to leave a comment for her and you might win a swag pack. Detail at the end of the post. So now, take the mic Sharon!
As a review blogger I read. A lot. I have a paper book and my kindle with me at all times because you never know when you will have a moment to read. I decided to visually chronicle for you places I read this past week. I used my recently named Sheep buddy Dr. Baron Baxter von Baaathalm-ewe V (a.k.a. Baaart.) to sit in for me.
The loveseat. How appropriate is that? I love reading. At some point I sit here each day.
My front porch rocker. Now that the weather is getting reasonable again here in NC I love to sit outside and rock-n-read!
It is surprising how much I read in my car. I tend to get places early so I read while I wait. Do I read while driving? Of course not, but if the light is red…
I had to go to the dentist this week and yes, I read here while waiting to get my teeth cleaned (no cavities by the way!) I ended up convincing the hygienist to start the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
I am a reluctant soccer mom. Both my girls play, so that is two practices a week and two games every Saturday. Do I read instead of watching? Of course not! Well, maybe…
We have an indoor pool at the YMCA. Sometimes I read there or head to the elliptical machine. My kindle is perfect for that!
Come on! You’ve done it too! I mean some books are just that good… 😀
Um…in my defense, the officer was Hawt! You would have done the same thing!
So those are some places I read this past week. Have you read in the bathroom? Or am I the only one that impatient *g*?

Thanks to Lea aka our Danger Lover we have the following swag pack for one lucky commenter! 
You’re also getting an extra entry for the main giveaway if you entered our Big 1000 Followers Giveaway here.

    Places I have read this week: In bed, in the bathtub, in the break room at work. A huge part of my reading time is actually listening to audiobooks…I have done that this week while at work in the lab's pathogen room, in the car and while working on jigsaw puzzles at home 🙂

    This week I've read in the car (I was the passenger!), my big chair in the living room, the rocking chair in my office, and my bed.

    While not this week, I read in the doctor's office too – in the waiting room and in the exam room while waiting another 15 minutes (or longer) for the doctor to show up!


  • LSUReader October 15, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    My favorite place to read is in my den recliner. But, as you pointed out, life goes on and you have to get your reading in when and where you can. I believe I've shared most of your reading venues! Thanks for a fun column.

  • Sullivan McPig October 15, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Ok….. let me think.
    Train, Comfy Chair, Bed and Couch.
    That would be the places I read last week.

    bathroom: nope, do not like to read my books there, just magazines.

  • Ifrah October 15, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    This week I've read in my bed and in air plane (I love to read while traveling ! )


  • Blodeuedd October 15, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Yes I have read in the bathroom, cos some books are so good that I just have to take them with me if I really have to go 😉


  • Estella October 15, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Have never been tempted to read in the bathroom.

    I'm more of a big, comfy chair gal myself 🙂 But to each their own!


  • Mel October 15, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    I have to confess to reading in the bath a lot – although now I have a kindle I have to be careful! I also read in the cinema while waiting for the trailers to start…well, those ads are just so boring! 🙂

    I tend to only read on my bed, I can see out the window from there so when I need to take a breather from an extra steamy scene in a book 😉 I can just look outside at the green trees and blue sky.

  • Denise Z October 15, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    Sharon, I always knew we were kindred spirits. I have read in all the same places and then some. I think the favorite spot was in the poky – just imagine three meals a day, no chores, and all that time on my hands to read – Okay I am just kidding about the poky never really been there, besides they probably don't have anywhere to recharge my kindle LOL Thank you for sharing with us today.


  • Camille October 15, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    I like to read in my bedroom 🙂 on the bed, leaning back or sideways left or right before bedtime usually since life gets in the way during the day and I can't stay in bed reading (alas) but on the holidays I do stay in bed, all day, reading. Pausing for toilet breaks and sustenance ROFL

    'I ended up convincing the hygienist to start the Black Dagger Brotherhood series' you have made a great contribution to the world! that's fantastic lol

  • elaing8 October 15, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    LOL..No I don't read in the bathroom.
    I read in my lounge chair or in bed.

  • Sharon October 15, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    Thanks guys! I know someone that puts their kindle in a ziploc bag to read in the bath. I know I would drop it! I also love to read when riding in a car, but it drives (heehee, I made a (punny) my husband crazy cause I ignore him.

  • kimyunalesca October 15, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    I like reading in my bedroom,sometimes in the office or in the lanai if the weather is great ^_^

  • Amy@Amy's Book World October 15, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    I usually read in bed or curled up on the couch. I also read while sitting on the pouch. I get fresh air and read. I'm multitasking. I have never read a book in a police car. I tend to carry a book everywhere I go, so if I ever get pulled over by the po-po, I'll have a book to read if arrested. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Oh Sharon how I love thee! These are new photos even to me. 🙂 Baaart is having way too much fun I tell ya. And hot damn he didn't get me any numbers for those hottie police! bad Baaart!

    I love that you got your dentist to start reading the Brothers. That's so epic. 😉

    I love to read in my bed. Of all the places that one is the best for me.

    Awesome post from an amazing woman. xoxoxo

    Sheep rock!

  • zzebra138 October 16, 2011 at 12:56 am

    Being w/c bound, I don't move much.
    So for me it's in bed, at my desk, on the loo, or in front of the fire.

    I was also reading in front of the tv while Wales unfairly lost to the French in the RWC last night. I plan to repeat this tonight when NZ play Australia.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! i love this! Baaart is so cute (especially in the sunglasses!)

    Bathroom reading… yeah, yeah, sometimes i get lost reading and hubby has to bang on the door and shout "Put down the book!"

  • Mary October 16, 2011 at 2:45 am

    This week I've read in the living room, in my bed and by the window when it was bright enough outside to do so.

  • Aurian October 16, 2011 at 6:43 am

    Great post, love the sheep! Where do I read? Hmmm. In the bathtub, at my desk in the office during my lunchbreak, on the couch, or ebooks on my computer, in the car when my bf is driving and he gets irritated by my remarks …

    I love the I Smell Sheep blog, and I'm very glad you chose to interview Sharon! My favorite place to read, and where I have been reading this week, is on my reading loveseat! I have it all set up for me, and my kids are not allowed near it if I'm in the room!

  • mbreakfield October 16, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    I've been reading in bed, in my comfy chair, and in waiting rooms.

    Have been reading on the pot for years! 😉 But my all-time favorite is in bed before going to sleep – that is something I've done since I was a kid.

    Great post Sharon!!! Let's see – I read in bed, I read on the couch, I read at work, I read at lunch time wherever I am usually, I listen to books in my car while driving, I read on the porch by the pool, in the hot tub, in the bathtub, at the library, at friend's houses if they're on the throne! lol, and um… probably lots of other places too – oh kitchen when I am cooking and waiting for things like water to boil. lol 🙂

  • Scorpio1974 October 16, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    The 2 places I read are on my loveseat and in bed. Just love being comfortable while I'm reading a great book! =)

    I recently bought an e-Reader and I take it absolutely everywhere – on the bus, to the dog park, in line at the supermarket, and yes, to the… uh… well, sometimes you just have to finish the chapter and other things can't wait!

  • Vojalyn October 17, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    I can't read if there isn't silence and peace, and this weekend my little brothers were annoyingly loud and I simply couldn't understand a word that I read. And of course, I couldn't not read at the weekend, so I climbed up to out roof, set some light and read 🙂 It was a little extreme because our roof is very neglected so there are spiders and dust everywhere 😀 But I was fine with it as long as I could read 🙂 🙂 Call me a bookaholic 🙂

  • Maria (pronounced Mariah) October 17, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    I do alot of reading (listening) in the car on the way to and from work.

    All I can say is…other people take in magazines or newspapers to the "room"…we take in our latest reads. That is all. ^_^

  • Bookwyrm369 October 18, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    Heck, yes, I read in the bathroom 🙂 Sometimes it's the only peaceful place in the house!
