My #IdealBookatoir looks something like this: functional and understated


tpixie Love it! It just needs a pull out ottoman! The shelves are great! 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I agree with @tpixie — an ottoman would be necessary. But it is lovely and very functional either way! 1y
RadicalReader @CouronneDhiver best chair ever invented for the true book worm where one doesn't even need to get up to sink their teeth into their next read 1y

CouronneDhiver I agree - an ottoman would be a nice addition. I just love the idea of such a simple, uncluttered reading nook. Makes my minimalist eyes happy. 😍 @tpixie @BarbaraTheBibliophage @RadicalReader @rabbitprincess 1y

When I read I need to have my feet propped up!! #IdealBookatoir

Libby1 Lovely! 1y
AmyG Me, too. I love the chair on the left. (edited) 1y
tpixie @AmyG @Libby1 we inherited a lovely chaise lounge from my great aunt. It was my favorite reading place! My older sister took it to her house & unfortunately she put it in the basement and mice got in it. I sure wish she would have offered it to me when she quit using it! Otherwise she's a great sister! 😊🤪😊 1y

Repost from @BarbaraTheBibliophage :

Apparently, there‘s a term called “boobatoir,” meaning a place to binge watch shows and relax. Littens prefer a “bookatoir,” right?

If you could have the perfect bookatoir, what would it look like? Show us a picture! And tag me, please.


BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks for the repost!! 1y
LitsyHappenings @BarbaraTheBibliophage Anything for you, dear Litten! Feel free to tag us anytime ☺️. 1y

#idealBookatoir @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Since I am usually with a book, I enjoy reading in quiet parks, surrounded by lush greenery.
I realised I have often found myself reading near water bodies like reservoirs, and even creeks (my birthday treat, in Penang last year ;))
I couldn't find the picture of the book I took near the Ganges, as I read facing the majestic Himalayas. #memories

MissAimz_55 I love being surrounded by nature when I read! 1y
GatheringBooks west coast park? which reminds me, i haven‘t gone to any of the parks for awhile now. :( 1y

BookishMe @GatheringBooks the gazebo is along the Southern Ridges Walk (can't recall if that's near Kent Ridge or Mt Faber ;o) and the bottom photo was taken at Bedok Reservoir. Chinese Garden is convenient/ nearest for you? Can't recall seating spots there. Botanical Gardens is BEST for quiet reading almost anytime ;D 1y
GatheringBooks @BookishMe our faves are east coast or west coast park. it‘s been ages since we‘ve been to botanic park. 1y
BookishMe @GatheringBooks I could say the same for East Coast. I think the last visit was way before Marina Cove/ Greenland Park? Somewhere along the way, children have outgrown West Coast Park ;(( 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good call and some beautiful spots. The world is your bookatoir! 1y
BookishMe @BarbaraTheBibliophage I LIKE that - The world IS Our Bookatoir! 💓💓 1y

Here are a few of my #idealbookatoir . I love the water so reading right by the water would be wonderful. I also love the thought of a covered patio and being able to see and hear the rain while cuddled up on a couch. And it's really important that I have access to all the books! @BarbaraTheBibliophage

BarbaraTheBibliophage I love all of those, especially where there‘s water nearby. I‘m a water sign and love being in it and around it! 1y
Courtneymal17 Lol I‘m a Fire sign but the water is totally my happy place. It definitely soothes me. 1y
MissAimz_55 I'm a water sign too . @BarbaraTheBibliophage . 1y

MissAimz_55 @Courtneymal17 lol maybe it's bc water can put fire out? 1y
TheBookAddict 😍😍😍 🙌🏽🐟🏝 1y
Courtneymal17 Maybe! 1y
BookishMe I open the bedroom windows when it rains for that raindrop music background and snuggle to my book ;D 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Courtneymal17 Must be the need for balance. 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @MissAimz_55 Go water signs!! 💦💦 1y

My #idealbookatoir is anywhere near a body of water. This is Anna Maria Island, FL, where the Gulf meets Tampa Bay. Last place I've been with water, a beach and a book. Heaven! 😇

Chelleo I lived in Clearwater FL and loved the beaches there 😍 1y
CrinolineDream Such a beautiful area! St. Pete Beach is my favorite. 🌊 🐚 ☀️ 1y

#Idealbookatoir @BarbaraTheBibliophage My ideal place to read would be a really nice canopy bed (or a very whimsical windowsill) overlooking the ocean!! 💖📚😍I don‘t have access to either of these but I think it would add soo much atmosphere to my reading experience lol 😌

BarbaraTheBibliophage Oh nice! What a beautiful setting for a #bookatoir. 1y
HOTPock3tt @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thank you!! ❤️I only wish it was actually mine!!😌lol! (edited) 1y
