书的姿势

读书是需要姿势的。

我一直都是这么觉得的。

那时候的自己多么的骄傲自大啊,喜欢去找那些奇书怪书、不适合我那个年龄段的书。所以,总是还没看几页就像犯了多动症的孩子似的,浑身不自在。而原因呢,自然归结于:“嗯,这个看书的姿势不行”

有一个念头,就像一个小小的执念,萦绕在我心头。
“我一定要找到这个世界上最适合阅读的姿势。”

真的有吗?但我想,探寻的过程总是有趣的。

试过,盘腿坐在公园绿油油的草地上看。No,脖子会酸疼的不行。
试过,半躺在床上,背靠在温软喷香的被子里。No,看没两页就要睡着。
试过,弓着腰,坐在太师椅,两手撑在膝盖上看。No,膝盖会痛死。
试过,在公交车起点站随便跳上一路公交车,坐在无人打扰的后排,默默地看。No,眼睛会在那颠簸的阅读中报废,不过好歹还可以抬头看看风景。
……

后来有一天,我放弃了那个执念。没有放弃的,是不断的探寻。

脖子酸疼又怎么样?芳草的气味和阳光的痕迹早已留在书卷上。
躺在床上看睡着了又怎么样?书的内容早已飘进了我的脑海,成了梦,成了诗。
……

读书的乐趣
其实吧
蕴藏在每一种姿势里
每一次的探寻中

节选自:If on a winter’s night a traveler:

You are about to begin reading Italo Calvino’s new novel, If on a winter’s night a traveler. Relax. Concentrate. Dispel every other thought. Let the world around you fade. Best to close the door; the TV is always on in the next room. Tell the others right away, “No, I don’t want to watch TV!” Raise your voice—they won’t hear you otherwise—”I’m reading! I don’t want to be disturbed!” Maybe they haven’t heard you, with all that racket; speak louder, yell: “I’m beginning to read Italo Calvino’s new novel!” Or if you prefer, don’t say anything; just hope they’ll leave you alone.
Find the most comfortable position: seated, stretched out, curled up, or lying flat. Flat on your back, on your side, on your stomach. In an easy chair, on the sofa, in the rocker, the deck chair, on the hassock. In the hammock, if you have a hammock. On top of your bed, of course, or in the bed. You can even stand on your hands, head down, in the yoga position. With the book upside down, naturally.
Of course, the ideal position for reading is something you can never find. In the old days they used to read standing up, at a lectern. People were accustomed to standing on their feet, without moving. They rested like that when they were tired of horseback riding. Nobody ever thought of reading on horseback; and yet now, the idea of sitting in the saddle, the book propped against the horse’s mane, or maybe tied to the horse’s ear with a special harness, seems attractive to you. With your feet in the stirrups, you should feel quite comfortable for reading; having your feet up is the first condition for enjoying a read.
