A good place to read

Months ago I interviewed a man who was reading 1945: What if Japan hadn't surrendered in World War II?, by Robert Conroy, who told me that he has a booth reserved at the Kilowatt--a dive bar on 16th Street in the Mission District--specifically for reading. It's the booth that has the best light.

I was there celebrating a friend's birthday and checked it out.

He told no lies.

Where would you reserve a reading spot? Between what hours?

wow - that guy has got it made - i would LOVE to have a spot reserved with signage in quite a few places...i just can't imagine a proprietor being that willing to give up a table for 4 hours!

My favorite places to read are outside in the shade when it is not too hot or not too cold. I wish that I had a comfy chair reserved in a local park!

When I retire, I will sip coffee and read at the Ithaca Bakery, taking a break at times to use my laptop. I envy people now who I see in there reading and using their computers.

That's so very cool. If I had a chance to reserve a place it would be in a place where it's not too hot to go outside and read in a park. Because where I live, most of the time it's burning hot!
