It is also my favorite weather to read by.
Please, keep your sandy beaches, your breezy springtime hammocks, and your fireside lounge chairs. My ideal reading environment requires cozy refuge from severe weather.
This preference might have something to do with the element of danger, likely due to my time in Mississippi and Florida dodging hurricanes, and here in Tennessee admiring the ferocity of tornados.
This doesn't mean that I don't respect the power of nature. In fact, I'd say I revel in it. It puts my mind at ease to know that, while the storm is raging outside, something equally powerful is happening when I'm engrossed in a great book.
So, where do you like to read? Do you have a favorite spot? A perfect chair? A secluded hideaway or public perch?
