YIPPEE! My new reading chair arrived this afternoon (with matching sofa, from the sales at Furniture Village).
It’s a ‘smuggler’ chair – one and a half seats wide, so plenty of room for feet and wriggling and cushions – and a cat when we get one. Meanwhile my daughter is pleased with the sofa because it is longer than our old one and she can lie on it, (just 3 months and she’s a proper teenager!).
I’m now going to baptize it with my current read - The Cleaner of Chartres by Salley Vickers – I’m going to hear her talk next week (more info from Mostly Books).
I was slightly surprised that we ended up choosing a neutral grey-brown colour sofa though for there was red on offer (I love red), but I shall save that for winter cushioning. But thinking about how I’d describe the colour – it’s minky – and that’s the name and colour of our much beloved hamster!
So that’s my new place to read. Why don’t you tell me about your reading chairs and reading places …
