  1. I read in my free times, those are limited. I am not a busy person but the idea of read do not make me feel any emotions, it’s make me feel relax and some times took me to the dreams land, in other words make me sleep. The place I thought is affecting in my reaction because I read above my bed and some times I have a cup of tibia milk. this are only the times where I read. because this is the time where my sisters are doing their homework at 8;00pm.

  2. I like to read in a quiet place likes the library or where not many people. At home I can not read because the noise will not let me concentrate, so I go to the library.

  4. I love quite and sound places to read. When i read, always read in my room in the bed, but sometime i can’t concentrated because my mom was talking so laugh or my little brother came to my room to played and cried because he want to be in the bed with me. Also i like to read outside like the park when i ear the birds or the waterfall, because that relax me and consecrated what i read and imagine the movie in my head..!

  8. I know that reading I can found beautiful things that before I ignore, we can make fun to read.My favorite place to read is out side because I feel the air fresh and I concentrate in the book that I’m reading. I read in the school,at home,out side.
    I read when I need to, for example when I feel tired,or when I have time.

  10. I read in school and sometimes at home, I read in school when the teachers tell us to do it or when they assign us a work based on a reading.I read at home just when I like one book and that is not frequently, I’m not a good reader, so it bored me so easily.

  17. I like to read a lot, I read when I’m bored ’cause I think that is a excellent way to spend my free time, every time that I read i go out side of my house ’cause there is not distraction, when I read I feel like I am actually IN the history, I can imagine everything that I’m reading, I think that its better than watch TV. I like to read scary tales, fantasy tales, and all kind of stories.

  18. In the past when I have th time to read my favorite place to read was in my bed that comfortable place was the most peaceful place for me, I enjoy at that point that I readed 2 chapters and was 2 Am an I still reading, when I was on a trip with my familly o friends, in the park with my dog or when I was boring in my hause but now I don’t have the time to read I miss that time when I was sailing in the sea of the books

  19. Well to tell the truth i just read in school because in my house i can’t because i have a big family and the always make a lot of noise and with noise i can’t read, well yea i can read but i’m not gonna be able to explain.
    I read in my 1, 3 and 4 period in with my Mrs Parish i guess that’s how you spell her name i’m not sure but alright i read with Mrs Marchenko, with Mrs. Marchenko we always read on Fridays before lunch and with Mrs Parish depends because we are in groups so it depends of the teacher.

  20. I prefer to read in a quiet place, at open places like the park when not much people is there, like in the mornings. But unfortunately a person like me is too busy to go to a park and relax a while, but I also like to read laying on my bed with my fan turned on, but my house is not an example of a quiet place, because it is too noisy when all of us are there, so most of the time I don’t read!
