How do you create the perfect reading nook? This question goes through all book lovers heads at one point or another. Lucky for you… We’re here to help!
Once you have determined where to read, this could be the couch, window seat, or your bed, and picked your book you need to take care of the food and drinks. Some people, such as myself, prefer not to eat when reading, however don’t let this stop from having delicious hot coco. Warm drinks are usually best for cozy reading but if it’s hot outside your welcome to try some cool lemonade or a nice cold iced latte. I’m a huge fan of tea. I love chai and chamomile but my favorite kind is mint. If you want snacks try to go for something that won’t get your book dirty.
Time for music. Again, this is a preference you don’t have to listen to music while reading. It can sometimes be pretty distracting. If you decide to listen to music try something less exiting than the Hamilton soundtrack or Taylor Swift. Movie music is great, especially Miyazaki movies or Twilight. You can also try Pirates of the Carribean. Go for something without words.
Once you have your book, place, edibles, and music all you need is a nice blanket or sunny deckchair and you’re good to go! I hope these tips have been helpful and a post on book signing is soon to come!
