Reading in bed: Oh, for a book and a cozy nook.

Oh, for a book and a cozy nook.

Maybe it’s a holdover from being read to sleep as a child, but I love reading in bed.

Is reading, all cozied up in the covers, part of your pre-sleep ritual? Does poetry or prose help send you off to the land of dreamy dreams? Did you ever make blanket forts when you were a kid?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, have I got the perfect cozy-book-nook-blanket-bed-fort for you, right here:  http://www.buzzfeed.com/danieldalton/the-password-is-scotchy-scotch-scotch#.lg8wwX5kX

I stumbled on British writer Daniel Dalton’s excellent DIY bed-fort how-to/ ruefully funny tale of a broken heart last year and promptly shared it all over creation.  I also book-marked it, saving it for that hazy future day when I must, simply must have a bed-fort. Since my very comfortable bed currently resides on the floor without the bed frame necessary to anchor the bed-fort of my dreams, that day will remain hazy just a while longer.

My future bed-fort shall differ from Mr. Dalton’s excellent but somewhat stylistically austere design in one important way: in addition to the hearty but not too glaring reading lamp bulb, mine shall feature fairy lights.

Lots of fairy lights.

Did I mention fairy lights?

May your dreams be sweet and your book nook cozy.

  1. These nooks are quite the inspiration. Plus, one could use different colored lights at different times of year. (Says Mandy who currently has Halloween lights up in the window…)
