If you haven't come across the concept of 'book nooks' yet, you're in for a treat.
These self-styled reading retreats are the perfect way of escaping the world for a few blissful hours, with only your favourite books for company.
You can create these hideaways from absolutely anything, be it alcoves, window seats or leftover wardrobe space. You just need to add in cushions, fabrics, maybe some fairy-lights or a net canopy, and a book shelf or two.
Anything that makes it a peaceful, cosy and secluded den that is definitively yours, away from everything else.
We've scoured the hotbed of design inspiration that is Pinterest for the snuggest and most beautifully curated book nooks around. Take a look and get set to wile away a leisurely afternoon curled up in your very own literary bed-nest...

You could always opt for a ready-made book nook within a set structure, like this.
The seat is just wide enough to curl up on and you can use the space beneath the cushion to store more books in.
