My Dream Reading Space

Outdoor Reading Nook
Recently, a reader asked me about my ideal reading space.  I realized, that until today, I'd never seriously given it much thought.  I can read almost anywhere (as long as it's relatively quiet), and as long as it's a good book, I can easily get lost in it.  Most nights I end my day in bed reading, sometimes into the wee hours of the morning if the book is really good.

So.  If I had to create my ideal reading space, here are my must haves...

Big Little Lies and 73 Questions

This book!  I enjoyed it when I read it two years ago, so imagine my delight when it was made for television.  Even though the HBO series ended last week, I still cannot stop thinking about it.
