On reading nooks.

Reading nooks: a small space to cuddle up with Hemingway, Verghese, H. Lee or Austen. A place to stretch out or ball up into a sea of pillows. A place to let the mind wander. A place to feel like time doesn’t exist. A place of your own or a place to share. A tiny piece of paradise.
When I have a home of my own, I want it to have a reading nook. This nook can be under a staircase, in a tiny room, a part of a hallway, in the garden or on the porch – it just must be. My nook will have room enough to stretch out like a lion or cuddle up like a small kitty. It will also be crowded with fluffy white pillows and a soft cozy throw. It will be my own little escape.
