Have you heard the term reading room? That's the 'up and coming' trend in decorating - a room in your home dedicated to reading.
A calm place to immerse yourself in a book is a thing of beauty. It doesn't have to be a large room - it can be a nook, a guest room that's only used a few times a year, a hallway with enough room for a comfortable chair . . . . . .
The smallest of spaces are adequate for a reading nook.
to the joys of reading than in the nursery?

Is this not THE COOLEST room divider ever?!
Aren't these cubes amazingly efficient?

"If one reads enough books one has a fighting chance.
Or better, one's chances of survival increases with each
book one reads." -- Sherman Alexie
Good lighting and a comfortable seat are all
you need to snuggle up with a great book.
So you're thinking, "What's the difference between a library and a reading room?"
A library is a room to hold your book collection. A reading room is a special, comfortable retreat for reading books from your collection.

Not really diggin' the wallpaper but I love the retro concept:
"There is no friend as loyal as a book." -- Ernest Hemingway
"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge
from almost all the miseries of life." - W. Somerset Maugham
