I definitely read indoors. I have always been a homebody and I don't even like reading in my backyard. I do about 97% of my reading in bed because I can curl up and get lost in my book.

I prefer to read indoors. I'm not much for bugs, and my eyes are ridiculously sensitive to sunlight even with sunglasses. Plus, my house has a comfy couch and comfy beds to lounge on :lol:

Indoors in a nice comfortable easy chair, in a nice climate controlled location with plenty of beverages and snacks available.

For me. It would be indoor! That's too beside a window. If the room is totally blocked from outside view, that would make me feel suffocated.
A joke is to entertain people. If it fails to do so, it's something else!

I prefer outdoors in nature- either sitting on our deck or on the front porch swing. But once it's dark- definitely moving indoors.

I prefer reading outdoors when the weather is breezy. It helps with my assimilation process.

If I'm reading outside, I enjoy being in the shade and comfortable. Since, I'm most comfortable at home and I'm blocked from the sun, I suppose I enjoy reading at home more.

Indoors. I would read outdoors but i'd had to be somewhere like a garden very quiet or peaceful with not so many distractions.

Define indoors hahaha. I've tried reading outdoors a few times but I can't get my head around the book quite well; People walking by, cars, etc don't allow me to fully concentrate on having a good time reading.

Indoors always. I distracted by every little noise/movement so reading outside where I live seems like a nightmare.

I guess I can say, indoors. I realize I've never really done any reading outdoors. It wasn't a conscious decision or anything like that, but I feel I haven't really given myself time to stay outdoors except for my weekend workout. Come to think of it, on an unconscious level, I felt it wasn't safe enough for me to focus on my book without constantly looking around or keeping my ears open to the surroundings.

You know what? Recently I've made this little list to celebrate this fall, the season of books in my country. Nothing spectacular, just 10 little things to do regarding books & reading. One of em is "reading outdoors" 8-) . I would prefer a lot of sun and cool breeze. And being in a "safe" place would be a must. You wouldn't find me being lost in my book on an empty corner of my neighborhood.
