  1. Any day! Usually I read it during the evening hours, when I'm relaxing. 🙂

    Since I don't have one of those smart phones I can't read it anywhere but in my room. However, my room is cozy enough!

  2. Sat at my computer feeling like I've reached a bit of an impasse with some work, taking a quick look at this blog often gets me looking at it (or my attitude!) from a new perspective…

  3. I read it at about 2am in the depths of my research lab (AKA a dark corner of my bedroom). I'm into economics and love getting ideas from other disciplines.

  4. I love reading the blog on my laptop-wherever that may be. In my room, or in the library at school. It's a great way to keep informed and up to date! This book would make an excellent (and funny) gift for my parents who are very interested in psychology (when I share what I've learned in my undergrad classes)!

  5. currently reading the digest & posting this from my smartphone while in a psychiatric intensive care unit. Note: I'm an employee ,not a patient.


  6. I read this blog early in the morning with my ipad on my lap and a coffee in my hand. Gives me talking points and brain food for the day.

  7. I'm currently reading the BPS blog on my smartphone during a boring research design course!

  8. I'm reading on my smartphone during a boring graduate-level psychology research design course!

  9. “I would read it in a boat!
    And I would read it with a goat…
    And I will read it in the rain.
    And in the dark. And on a train.
    And in a car. And in a tree.
    They are so good so good you see!

    So I will read it in a box.
    And I will read it with a fox.
    And I will read it in a house.
    And I will read it with a mouse.
    And I will read it here and there.
    Say! I will read it ANYWHERE!”

    …. wait.. I may be getting confused with Dr Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham… But I would read BPS Research Digest in all these situations 🙂

    NB. All rights of the rhyme go to Dr Seuss – I don't claim to have written it 🙂

  10. I read the BPS Research Digest thusly:

    WHEN: Whenever it hits my inbox

    WHERE: Wherever I am, unless I”m actually teaching or presenting.

    WHY: Simply always find value and interesting things to follow up on.

    This is one of my priority reads: Goes to the front of the line, because I have come to trust the consistent quality of what you share.

    … and that's the truth:)

  11. I read it at the end of day with my laptop in bed. Usually find things to make note of and stay awake past my bedtime!

  12. I am an Advanced Placement high school psychology teacher from the US (Chippewa Falls, WI). I follow the blog to keep my content knowledge fresh so I can share new research with my students. Usually I catch up on posts during preparation periods at school.
