Hello,  English Musers!

It’s Hannah B. again from  Secrets of a Belle. This past weekend, while the rain pitter-pattered on the window, I spent some time curled up on the couch lost in a new favorite book. This got me to thinking. Where do you other people read? Do you curl up on the couch too? Do you read in bed before you drift off to sleep? Personally, my dream is to eventually have a room devoted just to reading… you know, like the Duke!

But it doesn’t have to be that fancy! After all, in the words of Billy Baldwin…


Here are some other reading spaces I really dig.






More excellent reading nooks can be found on Pinterest.

What about you? Where do you do your best reading?

Hannah B. lives in East Tennessee where she writes Secrets of a Belle, a blog about the art of living a more beautiful life. You can follow Hannah B. on twitter at @HB_Belle and on Facebook.

    I read in bed, but once my boys are older, I’d love to be able to read more during the day. I have a nice office with a wall full of books, and my living room has some cozy spaces now too. Our book collection is growing, and I love it! I agree – they are the best decoration!

    usually in bed, before I go to sleep, and in the summer I do some reading outside. But I always carry a book in my purse to read whenever I have the time — in cafés, subway, etc. Great pictures, Hannah.
