I am a big fan of Book Riot, and the posts in which they shared reading nooks inspired me to search the internet and find much more for me to hanker after. So here, for your covetous pleasure, the original Book Riot posts + a few beautiful nooks of my own. Which one would you have as your “Dream Nook”? Or do you know of others you’d like to share?
