Enjoy Your Favorite Book In style – 15 Window Alcove Reading Nooks

Reading nooks are always very charming, especially if they’re designed properly. I still remember how, when I was little, I used to climb on a cabinet placed in the balcony and just sit there and read a book. So, if you have the opportunity, get a cozy reading niche near the window. You’ll be able to feel the breeze, admire the landscape, get natural light and enjoy your favorite book, all at the same time.
