I don’t know about anyone else but my books have taken over my house. They are never contained to just the bookshelves I had made for them. Partially I think that’s because I’m a chronic re-reader. It’s very hard for me to wander past a book shelf and not pull out a book to remind myself of a particular scene or character.
I love that this reading area is so perfectly set up for reading. Great lighting, comfy daybed to curl up on and a table in easy reach to stack books on (okay, and perhaps a cup of tea).
