I’m in Lust With This Built-In Book Nook

By Christa Terry

A built-in book nook to die for!

When I’m reading, where I actually am has never been the important thing. I love reading on packed trains, in turbulent planes, and yes, I’m even one of those nasty people who will happily read in the bathroom.* If I’m truly immersed in a book, the rest of the world just disappears. But I understand that for many people, the enjoyment of reading is heightened by by doing the deed in relative comfort, and perhaps even in beauty. Do I need a built-in book nook to be a happy reader? No. Nor does anyone else. But I am nonetheless in true lust with this particular built-in book nook, surrounded as it is with built-in shelves and filled with its many throw pillows. And the drawers and the wallpaper! I think I could even happily sleep in it, as long as I didn’t have to share.

Do you have a special reading spot that enhances your reading experience?

*In my defense, with a toddler demanding my attention it’s one of the few places I can read for a few minutes without any interruption!

    O.M.G. !!!!!

    My Mom had a collection of Sunset design books when I was little and there was one that had a two story room that was stairs built into bookshelves…or vice versa. I’ve seen similar things since, but it’s just not the same without that slightly out of focus, orangey Sunset touch. This is a close second for me!

    Glad I could offer up a little visual happiness!
