Do you have a favorite spot to read in your home? If not you can create your own special cozy reading nook with just a few things.

At the bottom of this post you’ll see thumbnails taking you to those posts. Don’t forget to take the time to click over and see what everyone has to share.

Spring Porch Reading

THE SPOT

You don’t need anything special just a spot that’s comfy to you and preferably quiet and relaxing. For me if it’s nice outside I love to be on our deck listening to the birds chirp, the trees rustle, and the wildlife roam while I curl up with a good book.

COZY ITEMS

Gather anything that makes your new nook feel cozy such as fuzzy blankets, overstuffed pillows, a comfy chair, and maybe a cup of your favorite coffee or tea. Michigan’s weather has turned just warm enough that I can be outside during the hottest part of the day with the hood up on my jacket and a cozy blanket over my legs and enjoy the sunshine while I read. The sunshine feels so good on my bones after spending all winter inside.

LIVING THINGS

Add a little piece of nature to your cozy spot. Maybe a plant, a bouquet of flowers, or your pet curled up next to you. I have a plant on the decks coffee table. I like being able to connect with nature and see something thriving after the long winter we’ve had.

BOOKS

Find something that interests you it can be a novel, a magazine, a cookbook, or whatever inspires you. I like to download books form Amazon or go to the library for them. If you have a Kindle Unlimited plan you can download as many books as you want with your monthly subscription plan or go to the library where they’re free.

I’m one of those people that once I start a good book it’s hard for me to put it down and before I know it the entire day has passed and the only thing I’ve done is read.

While in the library I noticed a stack of vintage books that I though was on the “to sell” pile so I got extremely excited when I spotted the vintage books about birds and flowers.  I got excited a little to quickly, they weren’t for sale after all but they were available to check out, so that’s exactly what I did.

I took the books home and carefully thumbed through each page and admired the artwork. The pictures are just stunning and would look beautiful framed; they have that vintage feel to me. I did find the same books on Ebay so I may have to buy them just for the prints. I’ll have to think on it a while first not sure how I feel about taking such a pretty book apart and ruining it.

    Love, love, love a cozy outdoor reading spot! I’m ready for it to get warm enough here to swing and read! Your spot makes me want it even more.

    1. Margaret, I’ve been out there most days this week with a blanket and my hood up but I’m enjoying the sunshine. I even cleaned up the yard with all the things that blew out of our burning barrel over the winter. It sure feels good to suck in that fresh air.

    1. Thank you Danielle, they were a real treat to find.

  4. Love your pillow choices for your cozy corner and the paper bag hugging your little plant! And those vintage books! I love old books with beautiful artwork. It’s all perfect!

    1. Thank you Jennifer, there’s nothing better than a plant I can actually keep alive and a few fluffy pillows around me while I read.
