Does anyone else read while in the bath?Does anyone else read while in the bath? Mandy #questionnaire
Yup. And if I’m being honest there isn’t many places I wouldn’t kick back and read. Lol.
I’m about to go do just this! Baths and books are my favourite
Not anymore, as the last time I did, I dropped the book in the water! (And it was a library book! Whoops. )
Yes and in the hot tub
Unless I’m using my Kindle…
I put mine in a ziplock bag! Has always worked well for me.
It’s actually my most favorite place to read ?
Hell no, I could drop my book in the water
Yes its quiet and no kids
My favorite place to read ❤️
One of my favorite places to read!
This is so interesting. I never even thought about doing this for fear of dropping my book or getting the pages wet.
I used to in my old house. It’s so soothing! Unfortunately we have no bathtub in this new house. Stand up showers only. ???
I do! I get so bummed if I’m reading an ebook, because I can’t read it in the bath. It’s just not the same when you drop those suckers in.
Yes! It’s my favorite way to relax at the end of the day.
used to all the time – now it’s showers only.
I look forward to this nighttime ritual all day.
As often as I can. Lights completely off and reading my Kindle.
Every chance I get!
No. I don’t want to get the pages wet.
I used to, but then one time i fell asleep and my poor book drowned
Yes! One of my favorite things! ❤️
No !!! I am scared I will drop my book ? in the water ?
Yes!!! Ultimate relaxation
No baths, only showers. Can’t read in the shower!
Absolutely. I don’t bath without a book……ever! I’m 57 years old, and I have only ruined 1 book in the bath that I can remember. No big deal. It was a library book. I took it back, gave them $20 to replace the book and an extra $5 for the kitty cuz I felt kind of bad. They let me keep the water logged book. So it was a win win situation I think…?.
Yes, especially when I am starting a new book.
Yup, every day.
I would if I wasnt so afraid to get my book wet
Lush products, book, snacks n drinks for my sunday night ritual of at least two hours in the bath, great way to end the week.
@Maxine okay, only because I’ve been wondering about this since I read your comment yesterday… what types of snacks exactly? I’ve enjoyed a glass of wine in the tub before, but have never thought about snacking. This seems like something I need to try. Like, I need to get on your level!! ?
Depends on my mood, the weather etc etc. Sometimes its sliced fruit and nuts, crackers and cheese, other times (more often than not!) its chocolate, chips, biscuits, cake etc. Ive even managed to eat bacon and egg pie in the bath lolol, got it down to a fine art.
Wow! That all sounds wonderful! I will definitely give it a try one of these days. Thanks!!
Luv it. Roll on winter. I get good n pruney
most relaxing time to read
Yes I have a bath tray that holds my book while I read it. I only read when doing Epsom salt soak.
Nope, my books don’t go nowhere near water.
I listen to audio books lol
Yasssssss with a lovely glass of wine!
If I had a nice bathtub…. lol maybe in our new house 🙂 and of course, with a glass of wine!
I wish I had time to take baths. I’m usually in the shower.
I would love to if I had a bathtub.. and know the way to read while not getting it all wet ??
Not any more. Dropped too many books in the water! lol
I can’t imagine taking a bath and not reading…
No. Too uncoordinated. Prob be a library book and I would drop it in the water!
But my sister use to
I don’t have a bath?☹☹☹
We got rid of our bath as I’m too uptight to (a) enjoy baths and (b) think about reading in one. ?
I am too scared that I will drop my book in the bath
Yes I do and yes, I have dropped books in it before.
Yes via an audio book on my waterproof speaker ?
I can see why people would listen in the bath as it’s safer than reading. ?
I’ve never thought of this . Heaven. Thanks
Yes but not library or borrowed books… I’ve dropped a book in the bath before ?
Absolutely! Love that ?
Yes on my kindle. I should really buy one of those over the bath shelves in case I drop it in the water
I have a separate genre, made up f course, called bath tub books, basically fluff reads with not much substance / formulaic but entertaining.
Yeah I got a waterproof kobo
Of course! Bubble bath, glass of wine and a book. HEAVEN!
It’s so relaxing
Yup, that’s where I do most of my reading xxx
No. I’m afraid I’d drop the book lol.
All the time. ?❤️
I used to.i’ve droped to many books in the bubbels.!!
It’s my relaxation ritual—bubble bath, book, glass of wine. And two wild-eyed cats— one who wants to join me and one who frets until I finally emerge from the Pool of Death unscathed.
I don’t like baths ??♀️
I would love to but had to take my bath out and fit a walk in shower in for my late husband.
Sometimes I’ll listen to audiobooks in the bath or I’ll read ebooks. But never any tangible books. I’m too scared they’ll get wet. ?
I read or listen to audiobooks
I have water damaged two books that way haha but I still do it!
I read a lot of library books so have to use a bookmark. I don’t like the turned down page in general. But it is quick when it’s your own book.
Just did last night.
I use too but then I had a very comfortable tub with a recycling back. My husband use to let me escape while he watched our kids.
How do you keep your books from getting wet and damaged?
Don’t hold the book with wet hands.
Yes I kept a towel near my and had to choose easy to hold books. Shorter and light weight.
I have read physical books in the bathtub for 25+ years & have never damaged 1 yet (not saying that too loud).
Yes.Not always but I do occasionally . Especially if it’s a great read and I can’t bear to be away from the story for too long ?
I used to on the nook
I can’t take any bath anymore without reading 🙂
I only shower
Not anymire..switched to showers
My favorite way to relax! But I don’t have access to a tub, unless traveling. Then I really take advantage of it.
Yes, but never a library book.
Doing that right now actually. ?
I don’t because I am afraid of my precious Kindle swimming. Next time I’m getting the waterproof one so I can.
I loved reading in the bath. But i like to shower/bath and if there was too much steam in the room it would mess with the glue on the boards of my book and it would start to bubble ? I’ve also dropped a few bookmarks the bathtub… So I don’t do it as much as I used to now- and I’m a lot more careful when I do lol
Hurry through the shower so I can get back to my book.
Best place to read!
Omg. I can ruin a book like that if it accidentally slips. That is such a no no
Yes! My get away place!??
