A Round-Up of Reading Nooks


A simple pink teepee makes a quick and moveable reading spot.

As summer winds down and play transitions from outdoors to afternoons spent indoors, it’s a good time to carve out some space for quiet time. One of my favorite things to do as a child was have a story read to me (it hasn’t changed much now that I’m an adult either).


I love this closet that was transformed into a library for children, complete with a ladder. I also like the idea of having a sturdy space where a child could tuck into a reading shelf and sit amongst the books.


A reading nook doesn’t have to be specially built or extra fancy. You can add some small touches like a strand of lights, a couple of cushy pillows, or an especially soft blanket with a stack of your favorite books to make this spot extra special. This sunny reading spot and cozy corner were made with little space and lots of pillows!


I made a reading nook many moons ago by adding branches over my favorite chair. The addition of a few scrap buntings and a couple of pillows made this my favorite go to reading spot.


Sometimes, you don’t even need a dedicated space to enjoy a good book.
