This kid loves books. As you can see, he uses a stack of Dad's old textbooks in the front room to be tall enough to spot airplanes and the garbage truck outside. He knows where my cookbooks are kept in the kitchen, and will thumb through the pictures when I'm cooking dinner. He has a little stash of books in almost every room in the house, and he constantly carries them over to you and asks "ree?? ree?".
A few weeks ago I kept catching him in his room sitting next to his bookshelf and leaning against the wall to read. It was the perfect little space for a reading nook - so a few pillows and a handmade quilt later, he has the perfect little toddler reading space. He LOVES it. He plops down there anytime he's in his room, and loves that he has a big stack of books right next to him.
A writer for the Cookie Magazine online blog, Nesting, saw one of my reading nook photos on Flickr and asked me if she could use it in an upcoming story! The story is out today -- we're the third picture down. I'm honored to be up there with so many other beautiful reading spaces. Mine looks kind of schmaltzy up there with so many beautiful rooms and reading nooks! But it's still exciting. :)
