Where do you like to read?
Having a lovely space and place to read is an absolute must in my book! (no pun intended)
For me the very best place is in the garden on a recliner in the sunshine with no one else around. Perhaps a bird tweeting in the air and an occasional butterfly dancing past and a light breeze. Of course living in the UK doesn’t always (usually) make this possible so it is important I create a comfy reading space indoors too.
I used to like to read in bed but since I became a mum I am usually too shattered when my head hits the pillow. When I am in the bath my books tend to get wet and crinkly no matter how hard I try to keep them dry.
So I need to create a little reading nook where I can cuddle up and read in comfort.
I do like the idea of recliner sofas so I could really settle back in comfort. I like to stretch out my legs and have lots of space to read. I also like peace and quiet so maybe I would put my recliner sofa in the conservatory and lock myself in away from the kids!
Maybe a lovely lamp close by to give me focused light on the book I am reading . Anglepoise lights are just perfect for that.
Perhaps the sofa could be near a fireplace too to help me feel all cosy. I love real fire light and wood burning stoves. I’d also like to have nice throw nearby too, something very soft to curl up in.
Now I am ready to read for hours.
(Quite like a butler to hand for snacks too!)
