On National Read Across America Day…How to Create a Cozy Reading Nook!

Happy Read Across America Day! The holiday occurs each year on March 2nd, which is the birthday of Dr. Seuss! In honor of the day, we have tips on creating the perfect reading nook in your home!
If you don’t already have a space to snuggle up with a good book, designate a spot in your home whether it’s a comfy corner chair in the living room or den…or better yet, your screened in porch! Plus, make sure the area has ample light. A window will do or opt for a floor lamp or wall-mounted lamp with a pull-out arm.
Add a table or nightstand to the area as well. You’ll need something to keep coffee or a glass of water on. Plus, make that a designated spot to leave your book and reading glasses once you step away. Add some decor like a crate or basket nearby for storage of your future reads too.
Make it cozy! Add throw blankets pillows and an ottoman. A rug, plant and even framed photos will make it feel homey as well.
Finally, add an element of fire! If you have a fireplace, create the space near it. If not, try burning a candle, a tabletop lantern or even try using fireplace crackling white noise as another way to feel snug and comfortable.
