Our most recent reading nook came about one day while I sat on the couch and contemplated our living room space. I realized the area would be better served with a chair in the corner which could be used for conversation but more importantly, getting lost within a tale. It may have existed as only a concept for quite a while longer if it hadn't have been for the dry rot repair, new sheet rock, and new slider that we had to do this year. Since we had to do all of that mucky stuff anyway, I might as well make a pretty space, right? This is reading nook number three within our thousand square feet home. Do you think we have enough yet for the two people who dwell here? Maybe one more... Oh, and don't mind that side table. It's a place holder -- unless we decide we really like the plant stand/glass plate action, then it will stay. Not really, but for now, it works for holding a mug of tea and things like, oh I don't know... books.
