Style a space to read

Let’s face it, as a writer a part of my role is to day dream… oh yes and day dream I do.

I am sure there are readers out there, who like me, day dream about creating their reading nook.

So I thought, what better way then to day dream about what space I would want to create for my reading corner.

Ready to come imaginary shopping with me? (Another thing I love – shopping!)

First I would start with a Kindle Paperwhite, yes, yes, I would still have hard copy books, but one needs a  good e-reader as well. And as Amazon’s best seller why wouldn’t I opt for the best?

Kindle Paperwhite e-reader

Best 4 features that I like about this e-reader device is:

  1. there is no glare, so I could sit outdoors in the sunshine and read.
  2. A single charge can last up to 8 weeks. What! That is awesome. My phone currently has to be on charge 24/7 for me to be able to receive any calls or texts.
  3. Add margin notes. I would love this feature, as I love to give book reviews and it is nice to remember a special sentence that resonated with me, or an interesting event that I can add to the book review.
  4. There is a Vocabulary Builder, what I love about reading is unearthing new words, but instead of writing them down to look-up later and forget how it even related to a sentence, I can do this as I am reading through the e-reader.

Now to set-up the space. To place my Kindle on, I would like something like this:

END TABLE 25"x25"x25"H

A charming end table that you can place your kindle on and may be a glass of wine or a candle to create the mood.

For a good reading session, I need something stylish and comfort to sit on, especially one that comes with a foot stool. And my taste is Italian leather, which makes this ArtisDecor Plywood Lounge Chair and Ottoman perfect for my room.

 

Let us not forget about a fluffy, rug.

Lighting is important and I would always love to choose a chandelier for my special place of rest.

And finally a splash of decorative art would sit nicely against my wall:

Wieco Art 4-Piece Elegant Flowers Stretched and Framed Hand-Painted Modern Canvas Wall Art

And of course to start your eBook collection. Why not add my awesome novel, Destiny Lane.
