Have Book, Will Hibernate: An Ideal Winter Reading Nook

Have Book, Will Hibernate: An Ideal Winter Reading Nook


Outside, the snow may be falling and the wind may be blowing, but inside we’re getting ready to snuggle up in a cozy reading nook with our favorite book. Don’t have a reading nook? Don’t worry! We’ve done the legwork and set the scene for an ideal winter reading nook. From what you’ll wear to where you’ll sit, we’ve made a nook so cozy, you might just want to stay there until the snow melts.

Comfort is the name of the game when it comes to reading, so we’ll be wearing this library stamp sweatshirt,  library leggings, and cozy Muggles socks.

Even though our reading nook is warm and cozy, we’re prone to a chill and so we’ll also don Sense and Sensibility fingerless gloves and a Pride and Prejudice scarf. No outfit is complete without a literary beanie to top it off.

Now that we’re dressed for the occasion, let’s curl up in our cave chair, lean back against a pillow that speaks our language, and cover up with a luxurious dreamy throw.

As for ambience, this Shakespeare-inspired rug keeps our feet from getting cold. While the fairy lights and lit-inspired candle add to the nook’s warmth and charming glow.

Ready for a treat? We’ll put a kettle on and fill up this teapot for one with piping hot water and book-inspired tea. If we’re feeling peckish, we’ll nibble on some cookies made with these literary cookie cutters.

When the clock strikes five, we can turn our sights on some adult beverages and sip from our favorite wineglass. Maybe we’ll have beer instead. But if we’ve been reading all day and light has gone out of the sky, it’s time for a nightcap.

Snuggle in, dear reader, your cozy book nook is just the place for you to spend the short winter days and long winter nights.
