A Book Nook

Two nights ago, struggling with insomnia I plowed my way through the best book I've read in a while. Staying up till 5 am reading has left me exhausted and wishing for a place (other than our bed) to cozy up in.

As we plan ahead for future projects one space we're going to have to deal with is the top of the elevator.

When the last owners tore the wall apart they left a spot perfect for a closet. Which would be perfectly fine, although a little boring when you consider the option Jus & I are leaning towards.

A little reading nook, I imagine in the future we'll curl up with our kiddos in there to read bed time stories. I cannot think of a more perfect addition to the Behemoth, can you?

Oh my goodness, please put this in. I absolutely love it and want one. But since I live in an apt I will have to live vicariously through you.

LOVE! Great idea. We have a reading nook in our bedroom and I love to curl up in there. I don't think ours is big enough for story-time, though.

How did I miss that your house had an elevator?? Also, I love the idea of a book nook. That would have been pure magic for me as a child!

I'm in love with the idea of a book nook! I can just imagine curling up in there with lots of pillows and a good book and staying there for hours.
