As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

{31 Days to Make a House a Home} Day 22 ~ Provide Reading Corners

Ingredients for a reading corner: 
  • Cozy chair
  • Nearby lamp
  • Place to set a cup of tea or coffee
  • Book

A favorite reading corner in our house is on the loveseat in the kitchen.  (We I have been known to stare down the person who got to this reading corner before I did.)  It has all of the right ingredients.

 This chair is an appealing spot, but the lamp is not quite bright enough for me, especially in the evening.  I once put a floor lamp beside it which improved the situation greatly, but, alas, I had robbed the lamp from the space by my husband's recliner, which meant that he could not see to read the newspaper, and so I returned it.  (It was only fair, since Ron usually moves from my favorite spot on the loveseat when I stare him down.)  

We also have reading chairs in each of the bedrooms. 

You just can't have too many reading corners! 

Where do you curl up with a book? 


  1. I'm up too late! I think I can read anywhere. I read on the couch, in the tub, in the car... but I think my favorite place to read is in or on my bed. Even if I'm not laying down, I like to sit there to read.

  2. We have lots of reading corners...

    I agree you never can have too many! My favorite is the gold tweed chair in the living room, between the two couches, in out open living room/kitchen. Cozy and comfy.

  4. Anywhere is good. I "curled up" with one in the front seat of the car waiting for my hubby today. I could use some inspiration with this one, though. And lighting and seating are two of the sticky wickets.
