Best place/position to read technical books?
Where do most nerds read technical books? I use to read in bed a lot however I find this hurts my back. If anyone here does read in bed, do you do so on your stomach or your back?
Fragment: on the clock, at work, in the conference room.
Anywhere I can. In bed I switch from back to each side.
Usually suspended from the golden bridge with the support of a genetically enhanced spider web.
In a big old recliner chair. Those papasan chairs are pretty comfortable too.
Outside on a nice breezy evening with a tall glass of water seated on a comfortable bench with my laptop within reach.
Anywhere I can.
It depends on what I'm reading, but I find that for truly technical reading, I get the most out of it by sitting by the computer so I can wing around and try the examples, modify them, test my understanding, etc.
