How do you beat the problem of reading in the sun?

Retrieved from Morgue File


Reading outside in spring and summer can be a difficult task for our poor human eyes, particularly with our harsh Australian sunlight - and sunglasses are usually too dark for us to pick out words on fine print.

Do you have a method to counter this eventuality? (That is of course, other than reading indoors!)

Great question! I'm afraid I don't have a solution, but if anyone else does I'm all ears. Personally if I'm outdoors I'll try and find a shady spot to read.
Reading in sunshine is actually easy for me. It brings the writing into sharper focus and in most cases I don't need to use my reading glasses - but aside from that it's probably not a good idea to sit in full sun unless you're fully protected. A broad-brimmed hat is the best solution.
I place my book in the shade, my back in the sun
Lying on a 'banana' lounge in the shade of a beautiful tree!
Or a beach umbrella!
the first thing that occurs 2 me is 2 move into the shade ha !
