    Thats not realley the kind of book you can read in bed or on the train (without help anyway). There is also always the risk you will pull a muscle or it will fall on you and you become trapped.

    i read it in bed and on the train :S

    I cant study at my desk, and there's more space on my bed, so that's where i usually study, and i usually study BETTER when i'm on the train to and from my bf's house.... (my mum actually encourages me to spend time in leeds, it's great )

    I am not very good at reading long series of books like that. I start off well but I usually give up three or four books in. I have heard its quite good though. The only series I managed to finish was the Robots books by Issac Assimov.
