Top Ten Tuesday – Reading in Instagram photos

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

 This week‘s topic / August 17: Favorite Places to Read

So this week is about places we love to read in. Back in the days before Covid-19 (B.C.), I frequently travelled on business and it was trains, planes and automobiles. Airports especially—reading whilst waiting before check-in, waiting at the gate, waiting in the tunnel to the plane, in the plane, in front of the luggage belt… you get the picture. The last time I boarded a plane was in December 2019. That is the longest time between flights since my first ever flight. Next week I will go on holiday via train. Fingers crossed the train conductors will not go on strike again. Plenty of reading time on that train ride! In the meantime, you are wondering why I am telling you all this. Well, I looked at my recently deleted photos and my Instagram of the last few months and you know what? I took a lot of photos of my current read with breakfast…

But the place where I read the most is my bed, just before going to sleep. No photos of that, sorry! Here is the second most used place, my sofas!

Then there is my balcony and my parents‘ balcony—we like to be outside, so a lot of reading happens there, if the weather is warm enough…

Then there is snacktime—a very important event…

And there is reading with coffee, more breakfast, light lunch and just standing around for no good reason and reading…

Not terribly exciting, but it‘s the kind of year I had. Not exactly a proper TTT either, but… *shrugs*… off to read…
