Having a special spot to sit and read or just to daydream is such a treat for a child! Or, to be completely honest, to an adult! I know I am so much more likely to curl up with a book if there’s an inviting space at hand. To me, a cozy reading nook has a comfortable seat, something to lean against and a supply of great reading material nearby. The best reading nooks have great lights and are set apart from the rest of the room. Check out 15 of my favorite cozy reading nooks!
