Postcard from World Book Day

It is a truth universally acknowledged that sitting in the sun with a cup of tea, a biscuit and a good book is hard to beat. Which is why I'm sharing this picture of my Kindle (which allows me to pretend I was reading Jane Austen when I was actually reading something else, as well as having a screen you can read in the glare of the sun) and book seat (allows me to have tea in one hand and biscuit in the other while still reading).

If you don't have a book seat, you really should. The Kindle doesn't test the seat's full capabilities. It comes into its own when asked to hold a real book - you know, those ones with thick spines and small print which can feel like a feat of physical endurance to read - while you sit back and relax. Don't panic - they do come in colours other than pink.

Happy World Book Day. Hope you manage a reading break too. Biscuits are optional, but you'd be a fool not to.

The seat does not appear to be very comfortable. Though, I suppose with tea and biscuits it would be tolerable.

Strangely the books have never complained! It's actually like having a small cat curled on your lap which is rather sweet.

Tea and biscuits can make almost anything tolerable I find. Woe betide the committee meeting which fails to provide them.

You see - even book seats prefer the real thing to kindles!

I think maybe some days they like the ease of holding a little, light weight Kindle rather than anything more challenging. Or am I projecting my own laziness on to inanimate objects?
