(Beastmomma, could you please send your name and address to rdagmstevens at frontiernet dot net)

Now for May's contest! The question for this month is a Weather question: What is your favorite type of weather to read in? For example: I like to read on the couch during snowstorms and thunderstorms.

I just sent you my information. I am so excited that I won!! Please let me know if you did not get the message. Also, to enter this month's contest, my favorite weather to read in is actually when it is raining and cold outside. I love reading in book, snuggled under the covers.

I meant to write that I love "reading in BED"

I like to read in thunderstorms. Not sure why. :)

heatherlo said...

Ooh good question. I love to read outside, so I enjoy the sunny and warmish weather the best. Another reason is that I feel like I read quicker in natural light as opposed to lamps, so the sunlight helps that too!

Trish said...

I love when it is warm and not too breezy outside so I can head to the cafe to read on the porch. I also love rainy days when I can cuddle up in bed. Good question!

Joy said...

Congratulations, Beastmomma!

I love to read in a big, comfy chair with some hot tea by a roaring fireplace during a big-flaked snowstorm! This year was great for that! :)

Hmmm....Houston doesn't have a huge variety of weather. It's almost always hot and humid! But, I like reading on rainy days, because those are the best days to just hang out at home and not feel guilty about all the errands that need to be run. I also like sitting in a very sunny room and reading, though. As I mentioned, Houston is hot and humid, so there aren't many days that are great for reading outside, unfortunately.

I like reading in all kinds of weather. But I prefer sunny days the most.

I like to sit on the couch, wrapped in a blanket, with my house wrapped up in fog.

raidergirl3 said...

I like reading outside in warm, sunny weather, like on my deck on the swing, or on the beach.

BooksPlease said...

I like reading in front of a fire inside all warm and cosy when the wind is howling and it's pouring with rain outside.

Vickie said...

Snow, which is handy since I live in Colorado. Build up the fire and snug under a fleece throw with a book and I am fine. Maybe a cup of coffee or tea. And a cookie.....

Tara said...

Great question! I really love to curl up on my couch or my "reading chair" on a cold, rainy day and loose myself in a book. Love that!!

Tiffany Norris said...

Ooh...I don't think I have a favorite type of weather. I like reading outside on partly cloudy, moderately warm days. Also, it's fun to curl up under the covers when the rain is pouring and the thunder is rumbling outside.
OK, maybe I do have two favorites! This is such a fun challenge!

kreed said...

Ya know, I never really think about the weather when I read. I just love to read whatever the weather!

Sharon said...

I love to sit on the couch with a cup of coffee and a blanket to read when it is cold outside!

Melanie said...

I love reading when it's snowing outside and I'm inside all tucked up warm and cozy, with tea or hot chocolate. But I also really like reading mysteries in the backyard on a nice warm summer's day!

Diana said...

That's a tough one. I like to read out on the patio on warm summer mornings. I like to read on the couch during rainstorms and on cold snowy nights I love to lay down in front of the fire like a contented cat with my head on a pillow and read, read, read. But none are my favorite, I like them all the same

Jean said...

I like to read in the hammock when it is hot and sunny out ... on on the couch when it is raining or snowing out. I don't like to read during thunderstorms because I'd rather be watching the lightning.

Sharon said...

Hi there! I have finished this challenge! My books and links to reviews can be seen here:

This was fun. Will you do it again next year?

Laura said...

I love to read on the couch in front of a roaring fire, kitty on my lap, when it's cold and gloomy outside, especially if it's pouring down rain.

Nyssaneala said...

I have two favorite reading weather conditions: sitting on a couch in the evening wrapped in a blanket, drinking tea with a thunderstorm outside, and sitting on the deck in the early morning sunshine of a not too humid summer day.

Dana said...

I love to read on a bright sunny warm day beside a pool.

Lee said...

I like sunny,soft-breeze summer weather so I can sit out on the patio. I pretend that I'm on vacation and have nothing else to do but indulge my reading & knitting desires.

masanobu-tomoe said...

I like reading long books in bed, when there is heavy rain outside. I prefer fantasy for thunderstorms, and light or short reads for sunny days :)

My absolutely favourite place to read in the world is at the beach, possibly with my feet in the water, if I'm lucky I'm lying on a sunbed, sipping lemon tea or ice-cream. Oh I could do that all day and never be tired of it. one year I was actually getting up at 8 o'clock to enjoy the seaside, and would stay till lunch time, then back till the evening. Heaven! I've read so many books like this and I've great memories of them!

I also love reading outside, at the cafe, in my favourite island in sicily, waiting for the sun to go down a bit and then head for the beach!

valentina said...

sorry, forgot to add that obviously my favourite reading weather is SUNNY!:D

Kara said...

I love to read during a thunderstorm, in my recliner, under a blanket.

tinylittlelibrarian said...

I like to read in bed all the time, but it's particularly cozy when it's raining or snowing out. But I was just thinking today that I should start reading out on my patio more often now that it's finally nice out, so perhaps I'll soon be adding sunny days to that, too. :)

tanabata said...

I love reading, curled up in front of a fire, with snow falling outside. Rainy day reading is pretty good too though. :)

Nymeth said...

Congrats to beastmomma!

My favourite weather to read in...I guess that would be both rainy days and early spring sunny days.

In rainy days I love to be inside reading and feeling all nice and cosy.

In early spring, I like to sit by the window in the sun, or even outside in the backyard if the cats and dogs are feeling peaceful, and read to my heart's content. Of course, in the summer it just gets too hot for this to be doable.

Rhinoa said...

I like reading indoors when it is raining and windy outside. I have a really comfy round chair that I can curl up in.

Grilsgood said...

I would like to try this one too
