Review Copy Cleanup #2: Cuddle Up With a Book

This is the second post for the Review Copy Cleanup March 2012 Reading Challenge.
I'm beginning to really love these posts - they're something a little different from the norm.
And this week is even better, because I get to show you my favourite reading places!

A week ago, I would have said that my absolute favourite place to read, is on my bed. I will get to why this has changed a little in a minute.
I got a new bed in the summer last year, and I really love it. It has a soft leather headboard, so it's really comfortable to lean back on. I even have two large, feather cushions, to make it extra comfortable, and of course, my larger bookcase (which actually taller than the photo shows) right by the side of it!
For those of you that have seen the photos before, you'll know that my bed also has some hidden secrets...
Not only does it have a bookcase right next to it, it also has books in it!
It's pretty awesome, yes?! I'm very proud of it!

As I've said though, this is now my second favourite place to sit and read, and that's all because of a little arrival that came yesterday.
I used to have an old, red sofa in my room, that we had because the previous owners of our house didn't want to (or couldn't, I can't remember) take it with them. But I will put emphasis on the word old, there. It was getting very uncomfortable, which is no good for a sofa, so I saved up a bit, and bought myself a new one, which finally arrived yesterday! And it's so beautiful, and comfortable.
It's called a 'Cuddler sofa' and it's amazing! I don't know if you can see in the photo properly, but if you sit all the way back into the cushions, you're practically lying down!
And as you can see, this is also next to a bookcase, so it's perfect!
This is where I will be reading, later today ♥

Sometimes, though, when it's really cold, or I'm just in the mood, I might sit in the beanbag chair. It's next to the radiator and under the window, so it's nice and warm, but nice and bright during the day.
I say 'the' beanbag chair, by the way, because my boyfriend and I bought it together and he'd be annoyed if I called it mine (but it is ;P).

Of course, I can read anywhere I go; on the train, in the office at work (when I've finished all my jobs, of course!), in the park - anywhere! But these are my favourite places to be!

What is your favourite place to read? Let us know in the comments :)

Oh wow.. your bed AND sofa look super comfy. My favorite place to read is definitely in bed. I need to create a little space to read though because my bed is pretty boring! Thanks for sharing!

OMG! I'm in love with your bed (if that's ok)
I wish I have one like that!

Rebecca (Kindle Fever) said...

Oh my gosh!!! I love that Cuddler Sofa <3 *steals* LOL, seriously I need one of those. o: I need to stalk stores and see if I can find one, haha.

Also, your bed is seriously cool! I bet it saves a lot of space. ;)

If you want to see my favorite reading spot, it can be found here!:)

Ohh wow, Dani your room is awesome! I'm jealous. Lol I had to share a room most of my life and now I don't live at home, I still share it with my partner. lol Awesome post!! ~ Donna

Pen to Paper said...

They're quite fashionable here at the moment, Rebecca - well, cuddler chairs are, but I needed something larger than a chair. This is the only cuddler SOFA I've found so far. It's a good job I love it, really :P

Dani :)

Janiera said...

omg, that is so cool with your books in your bed! LOL. Never seen anything like that before for sure. I love the black chair too, it seems so comfortable.

My favorite place to read is the sofa or my bed. Both seem ordinary but they are really comfortable.

I love reading on my bed. My bed doesn't have hidden space for books but it would be so handy if it did.

Michelle Chew said...

The beanbag chair looks cool. Perhaps it's time I get one too. :D

Reviewing Shelf said...

The Cuddler Sofa is so enticing! Oh!! Love it! And you have two bookshelves AND books in the bed!! Awesome!

Vicky said...

Hahaha how witty! I love how there are books under your bed! That's actually a pretty good idea. Although I have some pillows and blankets there :( But when I'm really desperate and have no room for more books, I'll probably do the same.

And can I just say how comfy that sofa looks?! I need something like this so bad! The only problem is that my room is super small so I'll need to find something that fits :/

Lovely room Dani! xxx

Hannah said...

Oh what a lovely sofa. And I love your secret compartment!

Ellie Warren said...

It made me laugh out loud that your bed opens up to reveal a secret stash of books! Like some booksih superhero ;)

I forgot about reading next to dining table is next to one and I'll sit right up against it when it's REALLY cold.

Celine said...

Man, you guys all have such awesome sofas! I though my couch was pretty cool until you all came along. By the way, I MUST have that bed! You got books... in a bed. That is so awesome o:

My favorite place to read is on the couch in our family room because the ends of our couch recline, and I can stretch out my back while I read. But my husband usually watches TV in that room, so it's not always ideal. I usually end up in the bedroom.

SweetMarie83 said...

I'm so jealous of your amazing reading spots, Dani! Mine are decent, but yours are amazing. Your bed looks super comfy, and I've never seen something like that except in movies - how handy, not to mention incredibly cool! Your new sofa is gorgeous, and also looks super comfy, and I love the bean bag chair, too! If I had spots that comfortable, I'd probably read all day every day lol ;-)

Vidya-BooksAreMagic said...

Wow, your places are so neat and comfy..I would read it in hours and hours in those places. :)

Here is my "Cuddle up with a book".
