A Reading Nook is a little slice of Heaven.
I'm sure many of us fall into that trap, reading an 800-page behemoth seems like a bit of a chore compared to surfing a plethora of stupid websites, or spending a few hours enjoying our own guilty pleasures (Mine being Civilization games). So today after chastising myself for being so apathetic, I decided to grab my old standby, J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and search the campus for a good nook to disappear from the world for a few hours. I found a lovely row of stuffed chairs on the fourth floor of the campus library with a fantastic view (see pic), and I have a sneaking suspicion that I will be in that spot, suffering from a literature induced coma, for many of the coming months. I always feel so much more relaxed after enjoying a good book, and in an all too stressful world, its a great escape that doesn't involve chugging vast amounts of liquid bread like many of my classmates.
