My boyfriend, my bookchair


Earth Hour 2008

For the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me.. A book chair!

OK, so I'm quickly turning into Ciao! here, but I was just doing some studying at the same time as really missing J, and looking at my book chair and thinking how much I appreciate them both.

One of the few things J and I both like doing, is reading out loud to me. J likes reading out loud, and I like listening.

I love the sound of his voice. I have always been seduced by people with good voices, maybe it is a byproduct of working in the media, where you are always judging people as to whether they'd sound good on Radio4.

I also love being read to. I think it comes from distant childhood memories of nesting in the sofa next to my mum, while she read me the works of Astrid Lindgren and Maria Gripe.

My father would also occasionally try to read to me, but he is mildly dyslexic and by the time I was four I could read faster than him, and typically for a child showed no mercy in correcting him whenever he would falter or read anything wrong. It hurts me now to think of. Nobody told me that he had a reading and writing disability. Only as an adult I've realised this was the case, which also explains a lot of his other cognitive oddities. But I digress.

There is something incredibly intimate and seductive about lying naked next to someone, smelling their skin and feeling their voice caressing its way into you. I won't say it's better than sex, but it certainly beats watching TV.

J is an amazing reader. I think they practised that kind of stuff at his posh school when he was little, or something. He does accents and voices, and his own voice has a deep, velvety feeling to it. Oh joy.

Whenever I am tired or depressed, I ask him to read something to me; poetry, novels, articles from the Guardian or the New Statesman, whatever. He could probably read me the phone book and it would still be enthralling. It calms me down within minutes.

When J is depressed, he likes talking about himself. Lots. I guess that comes with years of therapy as well as being a slight ruminator by nature. When I have a lot on my mind, I am like Scarlet O'Hara. I don't want to think. Not until tomorrow.

So when J gave me the book chair, it really meant something to me. It is like he is there, holding up the words for me, even in his absence.

  3. Book chair sounds like a nice idea, but in practice I think I'd find it a bit annoying.
    Yes having someone read to you is very special. I love to listen to radio plays for that very reason.......for the pleasure of listening to a great voice. It's comforting and interesting all in one.
    The only time I can recall using a book chair and it wasn't call that was a perspect thingamegig that you rested cookery books in to read and protect them from food splatters.
