(Lack of) Cozy Book Corner

Teaching My Little Bookworm has started a new blog link up. Check it out!
I have been tyring to find some special "reading nook" in our house since my kids were born. You know, a secret little cozy corner with cute kid-sized chairs and a bakset of books. Somehow, it just never works out and my kids always end up here in this oversized chair that gets moved all over the house because it doesn't really fit anywhere. It is pretty cozy!

My favorite part of reading in our house is our "nonfiction" section. All (okay, almost all) of the books are labeled and the kids are always taking (and putting back) books off of these shelves. This system has saved so much of the "Well, I know we have a book about that somewhere.....", proceeded by tearing apart all the bookshelves to find that one book!

  4. This is a very impressive system for non-fiction books. We don't have a dedicated corner either - we mostly reading on the couch that stands in Anna's room.

  5. Now that's a great idea! I don't have that many Non-Fiction books yet, but I do have them all in one place.

  9. That is impressive! How are they organized? Is each box labeled with the subject or do you use the Dewey decimal system or something else?
