It's National Read On A Furnace Vent Day

It's actually National Read in a Bathtub Day, but that's no less absurd, and I prefer furnace vents to bathtubs. I always found reading in bathtubs to be logistically tricky, and was too distracted by water getting onto the page to really enjoy it. And the bath water cools off too fast, but if you've gone to the trouble to take your book in with you, you feel like you have to stick it out for at least a few pages.

Give me a nice toasty furnace vent, near the floor, where I can either lean against it or sit directly on it, and wile away the time, turning pages in blissful warmth. Now that's the way to read.
