< Back to question Where is the best place to read? Show more Show less

The only thing that can make a good book better is the perfect place to read it. Is a book best enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, or in a public library? Perhaps it's best to read outside, in a cafe or on public transport? What are the pros and cons of each?

Reading is better in private Show more Show less

Reading a good book in private allows the reader to relax and get lost in a book. A reader can get lost in the pages of a book without having to worry about anything around them.

The Argument

Whether it be in front of a fireplace or in a window seat, the privacy of reading in your own home promises the best reading experience. Everything about your reading experience is within your control--from what music is playing in the background to the temperature of the room. You can get the most out of your book by reading it at home because everything can be decided by you. Plus, you don't have to worry about finding a spot in a coffee shop or what time the library closes. You can read whenever the urge hits.[1]

Counter arguments

Unless you live alone, it is too easy to get distracted while reading at home. It offers too much time for you to realize that other things need to be done and the free time you thought you had you actually don't.
