The perfect place to read can be hard to find.It should besomewhere comfy, not itchy-fuzzy,somewhere quiet, not buzz-buzzy.With sweet, rhythmic text and bold and funny art, A Place to Read reveals the truth about reading books: no matter where you sit, the best stories are the ones you share. A book is best anywhere . . . a book is best when you SHARE.

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is:

One of my friends sent me this a little while ago. This is one of her favorite reading spots, which is part of Lake Springfield in Missouri. Do you have a favorite outdoor #readingspot? What‘s your #LittenSpot look like?!

Don‘t intend to inundate Litsy with Gracie photos, but this girl finds any place she can to read. A painted brick beside the swing and slide set that her buddy Leander is playing on? Yes please. A book is always in hand.

AmyG She is so big.....and so absolutely adorable. ❤️ 6mo
wanderinglynn I love her red hair! #redheadsrule ❤️ 6mo
saresmoore And why wouldn‘t you?? Inundated away! I‘m so in love. 6mo

Took Christmas down today, the 12th Day of Christmas and the Epiphany (When the Three Wise Men visited Jesus). Anyway, instead of what we had before, I talked my hubby into letting me put the glider and lamp in this corner to make a little #readingnook. I think I'm going to shampoo the seat, though. And the toy box is temp until we sort and organize the kids' toys. Our living room is our everything room, and this corner used to be a play area.

This cute book about a little boy in search of the perfect reading spot is soooo sweet! We‘ve read it several times already.

Reading spot is day 3 of the #12daysofbookstagram so here‘s my corner of the couch. I will usually load up the end table with iPad, kindle, real books, and provisions and there‘s almost always a blanket involved for maximum coziness. 🤗

Tamra Nice, I love that big mug so fewer refills! 2y
britt_brooke Perfect! 2y
Mdargusch Looks like a great spot! 2y
Pamwurtzler Your picture game is on point! 2y

New year, new book nook with a little room for expansion! Thought I‘d share this after seeing how many other Littens had plans to kick off the year with a revamped reading spot.

Happy New Year, Everyone! Good luck with all your bookish (and any other) resolutions!

Melissa_J Lovely! I love the colour of the walls. 2y
ElishaLovesBooks That looks like a lovely reading room!! So pretty!💙 2y
CocoReads I wish there was space in my house for a room dedicated for reading! I was, however, looking at houses on Trulia this morning. If only we were actually able to move...your space is gorgeous! Enjoy it. 2y
