Hello, book lovers! 💕
Considering everyone has been home in the recent months, it has got me thinking about where people like to get their reading done since there isn’t anything open. Like I used to try to get some reading done at the library, but since it’s not open right now, I sadly can’t do that. Or I’d go to a coffee shop.
I don’t have many quiet places to read in my house as of late since most of my family is home due to the quarantine. Whether it’s a blaring TV, loud talking or even just the dogs barking, even with my bedroom door closed, it’s never completely quiet. So reading in the living room is almost always out of the question. Because the only way I can get a good amount of reading done, it needs to be quiet so I don’t have any distractions. Because I get distracted pretty easily.
So much of my reading gets done in my room, mostly with instrumental music blasting in my headphones.
However, there those rare moments when I am able to get reading done in the living room on the couch. I love being able to snuggle with my dogs and cat all crammed on the couch. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling when I am surrounded by my fur babies and the unconditional love they give me when we’re all cocooned under so many throw blankets.
Although, I wish I could say I have this cozy little reading nook overlooking the outdoors. Twinkle lights, flickering candles and a hot cup of coffee or tea. That is the dream honestly. I want a little corner of a room with a window seat overflowing with pillows and blankets and surrounded by bookshelves.
But in most cases, I only have my bed. Though it could be quite cozy. I have tons of pillows and blankets that I can snuggle into with a good book. I have Christmas lights around my window and a candle burner. So I can get as close to my dream reading nook as I can right now. And it’s where I get a lot of my reading done. I can isolate myself in peaceful bliss for however long I want and get lost in a world that isn’t my own.
So that’s where I get most of my reading done. Where is your favorite place to read in your house? I’d love to discuss it in the comments below!
Stay safe and happy reading everyone!
