Book Nook Sunday: Holiday Edition

The next time I put out a Booknook Sunday post I really wanted it to be about my new reading/rec room space in my basement that we pushed to get together for the end of the year. And we did accomplish that, I will say, but only for about 3 weeks…

After that, if you’ve read my posts over the last few weeks, you’ll know we had a broken pipe in the kitchen that has resulted in some fucking annoying water damage that has ruined my ceiling, walls and floor in my brand new rec room.

And to answer the question I know you’ve got on your mind, yes all my books are safe and sound!

I’ll save that special personal post for whenever my basement is back together (fingers crossed for the end of January,) and for now, we’ll get into the spirit of the season – pure, unadulterated envy over other people’s personal book nooks.

I’ve scoured the internet for some of the most beautiful personal libraries decorated for the holidays.

Try not to drool on your phone/computer…

Book Nook Sunday: Office Reveal

Hey nerdos! Happy Sunday!

It’s been a bit since I did a book nook post and I chalk that up entirely to bad forethought and how absolutely lazy/busy I am on Sundays. By that, I mean Sundays are our “prepare for the week” day – groceries, garbage, making lunches, laundry. All the terrible adulting things that no one wants to do. And by the time we’re done I like to sit on my fucking ass.

That’s RIGHT. I SAID IT.

(I really should be scheduling these.)

But, today is a little bit different. My husband is away so I haven’t done any of our responsible things like usual. That means I get to make a new post instead. This will essentially just be me showing off the hard work we did in my new office/guest room which used to be my oldest stepson’s bedroom (he moved out in the spring.)

My last one of these posts I think I said I’d share the finished product with you all once we were done. It’s been put together for a little while now, and I’ve been breaking it in. Getting used to doing things at my own desk instead of in my bed on a laptop board. I feel so adult (I’m not.)

I also have some beautiful book nooks to share with you all that I’ve collected from all over the internets to get your bookworm envy flowing.

Book Nook Sunday: 04.01.18

Happy Zombie Jesus Weekend!

Today is also April Fool’s day which seems totally appropriate to have over Easter…I’m sorry, it’s just too easy a joke to make.

Obviously, I’m not a religious person, unless you count my all-out worship of Meg Gardiner, so instead, I’ll be celebrating Spring/Canadian Mud season by starting a home renovation project that’s been on my mind for months and months.

We’ll finally be converting my front hall closet from an annoying semi-functional regular closet into an open mudroom-type thing and I’m pretty excited about it.

A heads up to all you youngins who may be reading this…converting closets are the kinds of things that start to get your rocks off after you turn 30. Prepare yourself accordingly.

I’m not sure how much reading I’ll be able to get done in the middle of all this renovation stuff, but I’ve got these two books in my arsenal:

I’m SUPER fucking excited for THE VANISHING SEASON.

I’m seeing mixed reviews on THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW so I’m not getting my hopes up for that one. Fingers crossed though.
