I, too, read almost anywhere, but thanks to the invention of the laptop, I also write almost anywhere. Recently, much to my teen son's chagrin, I plunked down in the middle of the DMV and worked on a chapter while he waited in line. My young daughters kept shouting out plot ideas, like "Hallie should totally chop down the wall with an ax, Mom." Being the quirkiest little family in there, we actually had an audience. (And yeah - the DMV is like the most boring place in the world, so almost anything would entertain.)
What are your strange reading and/or writing habits? I would love to know!
I'm including a little gem from Stephen King below. It's short - just over a minute - be sure to listen to the end because that's the best part.

I think a truly successful title manages to reveal a second layer of meaning to the reader who makes it all the way to the end of the book.

Recently I posted about to-die-for, scrumptious, better-than-chocolate-cake characters (okay, I didn't put it quite like that). Here are a few examples...
