Reading Nook Inspiration

I have always wanted to create a reading nook for Pebble, but we are a little short of space in our home. However! I now am finding myself motivated by the Little Book Adventure challenge. The idea is to find new places to read. This doesn’t mean that you need to create a permanent book nook – but I’d like to give a temporary one a try.

I’m trying to be a little bit creative with space, and also with money. Of course I need to do my research! So I have hunted down some gorgeous ideas from the interweb…. Pebble’s reading nook is highly unlikely to turn out like any of these delicious examples, but I can dream, right? I hope they give you a little reading nook inspiration too.

Does your home have a ‘reading nook’?

What are some of the different spaces and places that you have stopped to share or enjoy a book?

    1. I’d LOVE a nook in my classroom too, but really is not enough space. We have two long skinny bean bags which can fit six children (three leaning each side) and they quite like that. I never read up a tree before, sounds lovely!

  1. When my daughter was younger, I had a tent in the lounge room with pillows and blankets for reading. We are currently renovating parts of the house for the new but, once it is all done, I want to set up a new space for her. I think the tents, or nets are a great, practical idea (in an ideal world, all of our houses would have an extra room and we could interest the hell out of it!)

  2. So many lovely ideas here! We don’t have an official reading nook, but my oldest does love to get creative with her reading spots. One of her favorite things is to take all of our pillows and put them in the large garden tub. She will read there while I get ready. Both girls also like to read in the special cardboard forts and tents that we make to go along with themes we are learning about.

  3. These days I tend to read to the kids in the bath. It provides opportunity for a good soak in the tub and they love it. And it suits me especially on the days where mummy isn’t around for bed time.

    Tents are great for reading. My girls love it, often gathering all the pillows they can find to make it extra comfy.
