Things That Make Me Happy: My Reading Nook
I love reading.
Books are awesome. I get them from the library. I buy them in the store. I download them for my Sony Reader.
One problem that had been plaguing me for a while, though, is my lack of places to read. I can read in bed, but I’d prefer not to. I can read at my chair in the living area, but it doesn’t have adequate light. I like reading while in a bath tub, but my apartment only has a shower stall.
In the end, I decided to create a dedicated reading area in my apartment. I got a big arm chair (with fold-out footrest) at a garage sale and put it next to my gas fireplace.
There’s a nice, warm lamp on the mantle for good lighting, and a blanket and pillows for comfort.
It’s solved all of my “where do I read?” problems. And it makes me happy.
