oh for a book and a shady nook.

with the return of my computer (thank you paul from the apple genius bar for your goodwill and patience) and the restoration of my rightful place in the world, i have been scouring the internet in search of the one thing i would like for christmas, a reading chair.

olivia rae, author of everyday musings, gave thanks a few days ago for her morning coffee nook. i was taken by the image immediately. and then the idea. and since i secretly want to be her (desperately, actually) i realized i too must have a morning coffee nook/all-day reading corner.

and so i'm scouring the internet for ideas. turns out, this is glamorous, is a veritable treasure trove of reading-nook templates.

oh for a book and a shady nook, either indoor or out.
with the green leaves whispering overhead,
or the street cries all about.
where i may read all at my ease,
both of the new and the old;
for a jolly good book whereon to look,
is better to me than gold.

ps: my imposed regression to a time before technology actually allowed for the discovery of some lovely reads. suggestions to follow shortly.

Those nooks look so cozy! I am now adding a coffee nook with a comfy chair to my list of things I require in a new inhabitance.

I think this is why I want a bay window. Well, that and the oldest daughter on The Torkelson's always sat in her's while talking to the man in the moon.

God bless the Disney Channel.

Such pretty nooks! I've been wanting to create one for a while myself and now even more tempted! Looking forward to your book recommendations too!

i love reading nooks. my papa built me a windowseat in my bedroom just for that. it faces the south and looks out over our redbud trees. just lovely!

i went crazy looking for bedroom inspiration the other day. you can check out my finds here: http://elliebird.tumblr.com/

I love the idea of a reading nook! I have a little desk in my room but I have so much stuff on it that there isn't much room left. I wish I had enough room for an actual club chair!
