This week, we are talking about reading sanctuaries. Well, we started by talking about reading sanctuaries, but you might guess from the title that we got a little sidetracked.
Amanda, Elyse, and I all require different elements to build the perfect reading sanctuary, and we talk about what we have, what we need, and what we absolutely must not include in order to reach optimal reading enjoyment. We cover blankets, locations, lighting, noise, and whether Amanda can realize her dream of becoming a vampire librarian drow who reads in the dark. We also discuss intricacies of reading in the bathtub (which, for me, no thank you), and mention some podcasts we like to listen to while knitting or stitching.
Reading Sanctuaries are pretty personal, and reveal a lot about what we need to create a quiet, restorative space for ourselves.
And of course I want to know about yours!
What about you? Where is your reading sanctuary? What do you need? Pillows? Blankets? Weighted blankets - are you a fan? Do you prefer a bed or chair? Bathtub? Silence or music? How much light is ideal? Tell us all about it! SBJPodcast@gmail.com or +1.201.371.3272!
