Today kicks off the start of National Library Week. I have always loved to read and as a child, I had a few favorite reading spots — a certain tree that sat along a creek in our backyard, an oversized chair in our living room or the porch swing beside my grandmother. Having a comfortable reading spot is a necessity for a great read, so grab your latest library book and curl up in one of these cozy reading nooks.
