I love to put on rain sounds and read late at night with my favorite cozy blanket after a stressful day!

Listening to the Ramona Quimby audiobooks narrated by Stockard Channing. They are very light, funny, and enjoyable while working on my crafts.

@cyireadbooks that sounds so delightful! I am totally going to do the same thing. I love rereading childhood favorite books and I never thought to look for some of them on audio.

It sure does relieve any stress, especially after reading some “heavy hitter” mystery/thriller type books.

Lately I’ve been listening to audiobooks while driving or doing chores around the house. It really makes the time fly by! And I love to end the day with reading a book or ebook. Such a great way to unwind.

Staying cozy! This includes, but is not limited to, a fluffy blanket, tea or hot chocolate, a heated rice bag, and peace/silence!

Talking to a friend about a book- hard to find one that we have in common so it’s great when I do. Also, reading w/e I want, but usually it’s in the form of audio so I can get stuff done.

Hubby has a weekly commitment out of the house on Thursday nights…so I get two solid hours of reading without interruption.

Brewing a cup of tea, grabbing my slippers and cozy robe and curling up on my couch with my book.

I take my book and a glass of ice tea or lemonade and sit in my rocking chair that is on my porch that over looks the forest.

I typically choose a themed bookmark with the genre my book is. I cuddle with a blanket and my small dog tucked under my legs with my unicorn slippers. (Which might start playing with them) I also like a warm drink such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or a nice glass of iced water or chocolate milk!:yellow_heart::heart::purple_heart::green_heart::blue_heart:

I love this idea! I’m going to try reading to rain sounds as well.

I pick one of my favorite bookmarks for each book I’m starting. It kind of sets the tone for me.
