THE VISOR – Protect your face from those rays with Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski!
This pose is also great when you want to stay a little hidden!

THE STACK – Get a little privacy when you’re reading Darkness Before Dawn by J.A. London outside. Build a wall with a stack of books!

THE SIDEWAYS – Get comfortable with a sideways pose while you read Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins!
Try not to fall over!

THE CRISS-CROSS – Read Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey while assuming this classic pose!

THE LEAN-TO – Grab a friend and lean on eachother while reading Summer in the City by Candace Bushnell and Something Deadly This Way Comes by Kim Harrison!
Books are more fun when you read with a friend!

THE NAP – At the end of the day, keep your face protected while taking a cat nap!

    In order from most used to least (I leave some out because I never use them)
    Criss-cross, Lap Dance, Sideways, Visor, Classic, and very rarely Nap. I have got to try the stack sometime though.
