Trying to be Comfortable

I'm trying to find the most comfortable way to do my job. My favorite
way of reading is to put the book on my chest, sideways, and read
top-to-bottom, because that's the natural hand motion, and since I read
with one hand only, this makes sense to me. I've taken to this same
philosophy when reading with a Pac Mate. The most comfortable way to
read is in an easy chair in the living room, with my Pac Mate sideways,
reading top-to-bottom.

But I'm here in the office. Not an easychair in sight, not even a Pac
Mate, as mine's on its way to Florida.Did I ever tell you how much I
LOVE UPS, by the way? So I'm trying to find as comfortable a way as I
can to proofread.


So. I might be a bit clueless, but maybe you could set me straight. Do they not have desks in Canada? Desks are these big flat things, and they're great for placing large amounts of bumpy paper and other things onto. Whoever invented the desk should get a gold star for brilliance as far as I'm concerned. SMILE! *HUGS*
Of course, and I'm using the desk. But I'd prefer to read my way, that's what I'm saying. There's just no opportunity for it.
so you read starting say at chin level and going down toward your belly button?
are you serious? That sounds so very uncomfortable!
I'll bet your braille teacher had fun with you... *grin*

I hope your pacmate returns on the doublequick. I miss my braille note when it is gone very much.
IF I'm reading on a desk or table, I go left to right. But I used to do so much reading standing up waiting for this or that, I got used to reading on my chest. And you won't tell me that left-to-right across your chest comes naturally. The natural hand motion, if you let your arm go the way it wants to go is, as you say, from chin to belly button.
hhhm never thought of it that way. I am left handed though so would have to read upside down
