Have you ever noticed your reading habits change with each book you read? I have. I noticed it last week. I went from a YA series to a more literary novel and... BAM! Where and how I was reading my book changed. I read the YA snuggled up in bed, my comfy armchair – generally … Continue reading There’s a Reading Position for Every Type of Reader
