Life Editor’s Picks: Cozy Book Nook

Today I’m introducing a new series of posts to share some of my favorite things. But unlike Oprah, these are things you can most likely afford.

It’s probably no surprise to you that I’m an avid reader, seeing as I’m a former book editor. I have a dream of designing a reading space in a future home with a comfy bench, loads of overflowing bookshelves, a window overlooking a beautiful scene, and an endless supply of yummy tea and cookies.

How about you? Could you use a spot in your home to indulge in some white space with a good book?

Here are my picks for creating your own cozy book nook.

1. Library Card Gray Tote

2. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

3. Oscar Wilde Poster

4. Drink Tea and Read Books Necklace

5. Keep Calm and Read a Book Pillow

6. Books Coffee Mug

7. Hyperbole and a Half

8. Bookstore Scented Soy Candle

9. I Like Big Cups and I Cannot Lie Poster

    This post is after my own heart! I dream daily of a quiet spot I can read and call my own. There definitely needs to be a big window looking outside on a beautiful scene, lots of comfy pillows and blankets. As for the types of books I like to read… right now I am really into self-improvement books. I can’t seem to get enough of them. There wisdom is like nothing else!

    I’m so happy I find you on Blog Bliss! I’ll be back 😀

    Love the Keep Calm pillow in pink! Funny, but I just made a board on Pinterest for ideas for a window seat for my studio at home. The windows overlook the woods next our farm. It would be better if it faced the pasture with the horses, but still a peaceful and pretty spot to settle in with a good book and a cup of English breakfast tea. My idea of bliss!

    Right now I’m reading The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and The Art of Whimsical Lettering by Joanne Sharpe. I love to read self-help books on living positively, historical fiction, and biographies. I also love, love, love magazines!! A few of my faves are Where Women Create and Where Women Create Business, and Travel & Leisure.

    Also going to write my own book. It’s one of my goals for this year to get started on it!

    Thank you for this list Sage! I’m hoping Santa brings me an e-reader this year, so I can catch up on some reading when I’m on mat leave in a couple months. 🙂 And if you get that space set up, I might have to come for a visit.

    I really enjoy “self-help” type books, books on fairies or animals, and would like to read more biographies too. My books need to be happy!!

    And I look forward to writing my own someday too!

      Yep, I read a ton of self-development books too. And I’d love to read your future book! 🙂
