This is my reading nook.
I decided I needed a reading nook, just so I could have something to call a "nook". What a fun word to have in your house!
I wanted to have a little place by a window with a table and a comfy chair, well-lit, so I could read my books without hunching up in bed. Bed used to be the only place to read in my house because there is no air conditioner in the living room, so it's off limits for 6 months of the year.
Because of a window shortage, I had to scratch that particular requirement off my reading nook list of wants. You see, the window nearby has an A/C unit in it, which as I mentioned a minute ago is of tantamount importance. So I just got a super bright light instead. My "table" is a rope chest that I store my yarn in (I have lots of yarn hanging around so I'll be ready to crochet a teddy bear for a friend's new baby at a moments notice. Crocheted teddies are so cuddly!). The chair is a dark wicker chair I got on ridiculous sale at Pier One, with a plain old cushion on it.
What's missing? Wall art! Look how plain those walls are! I simply must find time to drag my easel out and paint some pictures!
Where do you like to read? Are you a bed-reader? Or do you have to have lots of light or windows?
