I love cozying up with a great book. But, in order to really fall in, I have to be totally comfortable. Like, legs dangling over the side of a recliner, head propped in exactly the right way kind of comfortable.
I look at these pictures of “my dream house reading nook” that come across social media and think about how uncomfortable that window seat would be, because there’d be no place for my head to comfortably rest. And I would constantly shift and move trying to find a way I could be comfortable.
I’d end up on the floor with that pillow behind my head and neck and my feet propped up on that little footstool.
Lounge chairs are nice, if I have good sunglasses and a place to prop my arms. Then I’m in the perfect place — warm sunshine AND a great book.
But ultimately, I love reading in my bed. My lamp provides perfect lighting. I know exactly what pillows to stack how, and when I have to shift, what to move with me. I can read until I fall asleep or finish the book — whichever comes first!
