What is the best time/place/position to read ? do you read on a desk or in bed or on the bus in your way back home ?

There are serious readers reading 82 books in months according to a previous TED conversation. how do these people do that ?

Reading a book is a physically exhausting task, there are many bad side effects as a result of bad posture and conditions of reading like neck pain back pain headache etc.

I have personally tried reading on a desk but that is something I can only do for a few hours and then I switch to awkward positions on bed and floor ... how do you read ? what is your suggestion ? does reading on a digital reader help ?
