Reading outside is a summer pastime, but let’s be real: summer in the Bay Area really kicks off in September.

We want to see where you love reading. It could be a cozy book nook, a wild outdoor spot with a stunning view, your local library or your neighborhood cafe.

  1. Post a picture of your favorite reading spot on Instagram
  2. Tell us why you love it in the caption
  3. Use the tag #KQEDReads to enter
  4. Your account must be public in order to enter
  5. Five winners will be selected at random by September 30, 2018
