The Cosiest Reading Nooks To Curl Up In On A Rainy Day

We all need a little corner.

On all accounts, it looks like much of the country is in for a frightful weekend of weather. For the book lovers out there, this can only mean one thing: curling up with a page turner, a cuppa and some choccy.

You could do this on a couch in front of the TV, or you could venture into your sweet sanctuary reserved for reading, and reading only (napping is also allowed).

A cosy reading nook lures any bookworm with its comfort level and promise of peace and quiet. All you need is a random nook or cranny (a hallway or unused alcove will do), an armchair (or something to sit on), a lamp, some cushions and somewhere to stow those books of yours.

Here are some to get you inspired.

Don't you just want to dive right in?


A nice window with some dappled light helps.


The bigger the better, really.


Comfort meets chic.


The under-the-stairs nook is harder to pull off, but hey, you're practically Harry Potter.


And the kids will love it.


If in doubt, throw some floor cushions down and you're in business.


Happy reading!
