    My reading locations of choice are a comfy armchair or in bed. I am fairly regularly guilty of reading in the bathroom, but obviously this only accounts for 3/4 minutes at a time. I used to read in the bath itself, but ever since I started high school I've switched to showers, and so had to give it up. :p

    I almost always read in bed, honestly. Sometimes with a snack. Reading and snacking just seem to go together, hehe.

    Generally I prefer to read in bed, at night, but it can vary depending on the book. For some reason I found Kerouac's On the Road most rewarding when I read it in afternoon sunlight; there was something about the tone that just fit in perfectly with the sunshine.

    I have no trouble reading on buses or in cars (provided I'm not driving the thing); I haven't ever experienced motion sickness of any sort, which is positive, I suppose.

    Same. Long car journeys are great - I can settle down with a book and read for two or three hours solid without any interruptions. On occasion I've even found myself writing in the car. I still remember the time when I ended up doing my English Language homework in the car on the way back from holiday, the day before we went back to school . . . it's legible, too. :p

    The bus is a great place for me to read. Otherwise, I usually read in bed.

    Quite true. Buse and train reading lightspeed time.

    My choice reading has significantly dropped but I usually read anywhere, outside, on the bus, durng work breaks, in bed.

    With the more fantastic escapism, I read even with the stereo on or headphones on low to keep myself focused and frankly don't have to hear myself sipping a pepsi, snacking or breathing. Heck I score my own literary ventures. Only the heavy stuff doesn't always work that well maybe the exception classical or classic rock.

    Oh yes, trains and other forms of transportations are excellent places for reading. I too have no problems with feeling sick from motions so I usually read while travelling.
