    For me, "I get up at 9 and have a shower. In the evening I watch TV and read" is more natural.

    NOT A TEACHER

    You can also "take a shower," which is what a speaker of AmE would say.

    Re: Subject

    Or "I get up at 9 and shower."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
