By March 23, 2017 March 23rd, 2018 Literature, Reading Habits

Have you ever caught someone reading a book in an unusual place?

On a bungee jump, in the middle of a rave, or even upside down in a swimming pool?

Extreme reading is a very real thing, and maybe it is time for some of us to get in on the action!

Take a look at some of these examples we have found on the world wide web…
