It doesn't matter if all your book covers are pretty, or if the books are organized alphabetically. It doesn't matter if your colors coordinate or if you decorated it according to the latest trend. 

A reading nook is a place where you can spend some time peacefully reading, meditating or just enjoying a cup of coffee or tea while taking a little break, and for that you should have as much natural light as possible.
