Like most of us, I love a good reading nook.* And, now that the weather is (in theory) warming up, it’s time for outdoor reading! But how do you get the perfect reading area outdoors, with the best combo of sun (to warm you up) and shade (so you can actually see your book/e-reader)?
Feast your eyes on these amazing outdoor reading areas for some ideas.

Don’t have time to bang together a reading shed? Just pop out your tent and fill it with pillows. (Source)
Okay. I know. This is not a nook. It’s the New York Public Library’s and Queens’ Library’s library lawn on Governor’s Island. But just look at it! All you need is a shelf, some benches and a mowed lawn.
