Getting ready for the read-a-thon!

The read-a-thon is almost here!  It has been penciled in on my calendar for months and a babysitter for my son has been lined up.  He gets to go spend the night at his aunt's house, which I think is his favorite place to be, so I know he will be having fun!  Now I just need to find a sitter for my husband

I am hoping that the weather continues to warm up so that I can read in my favorite spot - our new three season room!  Ok, it has been 2 years since we put it in, but it still feels new to me!  We are still searching for the right lighting for this room though.   What do you think of this one?

I kind of like it because it doesn't look like a floor lamp - I think it sort of looks like a table lamp.  I don't know whether that makes it cool or weird. (lol) 
Are you going to be reading in the read-a-thon?  What is your favorite place to read?  Do you like natural light or table lamps?  I'm counting the days!

I prefer natural light, but table lamps will do in a bind. My favorite place to read is, unfortunately, my bed. Agh!

I am so excited again--so is my 15 year old son Sam, who reads with me. I like to read in bed and the glider rocker that is also in my bedroom. Sam loves to stretch out on the bed too. As far as lighting goes, well, because of my old lady eyes, I really need lamps. I really like the lamp in your post!

I am just now setting up a new reading spot for me and realized I am in desperate need of a new lamp as the one that is there now does not do the job. I hope to find something before the readathon. I am going on Mom strike that day. The family has been warned!
