Happy Thursday, friends! It’s Katie again, here to dream a little bit about the perfect place to read a good book.
Since the day I came home from preschool and asked my mother to teach me how to read, I have been more than a little obsessed with creating just the right place to read. It must be near a window, ridiculously comfortable, and pretty, with a table nearby for the essential cup of tea or coffee, and a lamp with soft, diffused light for those books that you simply must read into the night.
I’m severely jealous of whoever has these perfect reading nooks. My current spot is a corner of the sofa–but once our furniture is out of storage, I’ll have my easy chair and footrest back, and begin building the perfect spot for some great books.
Where do you like to read? What would your perfect reading nook look like?
