Isn’t reading the best past time? You can literally do it almost anywhere. And with today’s electronics, you can read a book on your phone, your e-reader or computer. Or you can carry a book with you. I have learned to read anywhere—and have: in car pool lines, at sports practice, on planes, even in hospitals. But when I really want to treat myself, I retreat to a nice, quiet corner with a great book.
When we moved into our current house, my hubby built some great book shelves in my study. While I’m sitting at my desk writing, I can look at all my favorite books and knick-knacks. It’s like visiting with old friends. Sometimes I sit in there and read, but if the weather is cooler, I have a beautiful wicker porch swing that’s very inviting. Oh, I also found the perfect desk at Arhaus, and I’m seriously considering getting because it is adjustable. Being short, an adjustable desk could make all the difference. But I would like to create my ideal book nook one day. A place to get away from it all where I can read undisturbed. It would have to have a comfy chair or sofa with soft down throw pillows. And anyone that knows me, knows it would be best if my nook had a window that looks out on the ocean. So, I looked around online for a few pictures of book nooks I would like. Now, maybe I’d take something from each and merge them together, but I think you’ll get the idea.
While poking around on the Internet, I came across this photo of a bathroom/book nook. While I know what they were going for, I just have to ask does anyone ever get into use the bathroom? If I my hubby went in there, he may never come out!
What would your prefect book nook look like? Would you have wall to wall shelves? A large window? A window seat or a big comfy chair?
