Reading positions - cartoons, pictures, and charts

These pictures and cartoons hilariously define the body language every book reader can identify with.

How long can you read a book without changing the position? Is it 15 minutes, an hour, or more?

It’s not only about keeping the comfort of reading on a high level, it’s about preventing the body from distracting you when you read.
