Hee, hee, I sit on the edge of the tub, put the book (now eReader - LOVE IT!!!) on the floor and read while I diffuse. It's super great. Takes the boredom of diffusing away and gives me nearly an hour of uninterrupted reading in the morning. Since I have to get up so bloody early to do my dumb hair I can at least have some fun while doing it!

The great thing about the eReader is I now don't have to hold the book open with my toes!
I find diffusing upside down soooo uncomfortable - but I do it lol

Im impressed - although - are you saying you diffuse for an hour!?!

In truth I probably only diffuse for a total of 45 minutes but it's over the course of an hour - so I said an hour. It's an hour from the first scrunch out of the shower to the last scrunch of the crunch when it's all dry. I have to diffuse to 100% dry or I lose the curl in the front and crown. I'm 3A on most of my head but 2C on the crown and bang (fringe) area. It takes some work to get the 2C part to look like the rest and stay that way for the whole day.

Ah I see - if I diffused until dry it would probably take an hour - I do about 15 minutes then can't take anymore lol!

I think my parents would yell at me if I diffused any longer!

I do well to make it 5 minutes most of the time, but that's just enough to get the curls going well. Unless I'm in a hurry, I'm fine to let it air dry from there most days. I often speed it up with the car heater on my long commute.

I am trying to think of the last book I sat down to read from start to finish.. hmm.. Ishmael was the book, and it was probably two years ago! I do not read as much as I did when I was a kid, but now that I have an e-reader I'm about to go on a serious reading binge. I love this Nook thing!

I think I've already downloaded about 30 books.. so far I have gotten most of them from www.manybooks.net and/or project Gutenberg.

Im a college student so im constantly reading books but the last book i read for pleasure was during spring break and it was called the "Hauntings of America." Before that it was "Dracula" and "Dracula's Guest" over Christmas break. I really enjoyed all of them
I usually read for an hour or two but i sometimes read during commercials while watching tv and i tend to get through a book quicker it seems, weird lol
