My favorite things for winter reading

'bedtime story'
This week's Top Ten Tuesday is Winter 2018 TBR but instead of that, I'm going to list favorite things to have around for winter reading.

01/ hershey's milk chocolate with almonds nuggets — for some reason, I find eating chocolate better in cold weather and it's nice to have it as a snack while reading

02/ hot chocolate — what is reading without something warm to drink?

03/ pillows — something to lean on if you don't have a comfortable couch which I don't know

04/ blanket scarves — actually maybe this should be blankets but I really find no difference between blanket scarves and regular blankets, either one is good to keep yourself warm while reading a chilling book or two

05/ comfortable clothes — because scratching yourself while reading is not fun

06/ clock / dictionary / bookmarks — I sometimes find these three things to be very helpful

07/ a bed — I think it's the most cozy place to read from if you don't have a comfortable chair or couch plus there is the upside of falling asleep while reading

08/ notebook and pen — for that certain thought or words that you have to write down when reading

09/ handkerchiefs — for those with a runny nose during winter like me, it's good to have a handkerchief or two around and also if you end up crying over a scene or two, it would be useful too

10/ books — it's naturally the first thing you should have for a good reading experience but some people like audio/ebooks but I prefer paper books

What are your favorite things to have around while reading on cold winter days or nights?

  2. Definitely hot chocolate or something refreshing is good in the winter! Lots of pillows piled around are nice too for comfort, and/ or a nice warm blanket! I like having a notebook handy too. You never know when you want to write down some thoughts on a book!

  3. Great list! I don't own a blanket scarf but I can't read (or sit on a couch comfortably) with a blanket. Books, comfortable clothes, bookmarks and pillows are also a must!

  5. I love your list and regret only that it's summer here and so can not be comfortable with any of these things.

    1. I sometimes forget other people on the other side are experiencing the opposite weather but reading is a comfort even in the middle of summer.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  6. A great list! I can't say that I'm a reader in bed, because it's just too uncomfortable, even with extra pillows. I have to have real books so I can turn pages, and find it rough to audiobooks or ereaders. Of course, any type of chocolate as a companion definitely works for me too.(lol) Merry, Merry Christmas and Huge Hugs Lissa! RO
