A book meme!

Ree did the meme, and challenged her readers to do it, too, so here's mine! :)

Most memorable place/experience reading a book?
On the back porch at my husband's grandfather's house in NE TN ~ it was foggy, there were geese honking overhead, and I was freezing, but I loved every second of it.

Most unusual place/experience reading a book?
In my treehouse. It wasn't really a house, just a bunch (like five!) trees that grew together in such a way that there was a reading nook amongst the branches. I hung out there all summer one year, reading Nancy Drew books and Trixie Belden books.

Most dangerous place/experience reading a book?
On the front of a speedboat in the lake. I lost my Wayfarer sunglasses (!!) AND my book when the water-skiier we were pulling fell, and the captain of the boat made a radical right turn to go back to collect the skiier. He also had to come back and collect me. I couldn't swim, but fortunately was an expert treader of water. The book? Not so much. It was fish-food. :D

Most luxurious place/experience reading a book?
In the Mayflower Hotel, NYC. A ginormous claw-footed tub, a ton of bubble bath, and a very damp novel. :) It was heaven.

Funniest place/experience reading a book?
I read everywhere. On the toilet, while cooking dinner, while watching bad television, while walking...and walking and reading is NOT recommended for klutzy people like me. I walked myself right into a light post. Had a big ol' black eye from that experience.

I love your answers! Really, especially the last one. I am always amazed by the people I see on the train, standing, holding a bag in one hand and a book in the other. I'd fall on my face!
