Lovely Places to Curl Up With A Good Book

March 15, 2010

Or a stack of books! Lots of times on vacation when my friends are out skiing, snowboarding, waterskiing, drinking or anything else, I am the one most likley to be enjoying the solitude of napping in front of the cabin’s big sunny windows between marathon reading sessions. It’s not that I don’t like being social, but sometimes I just love being quiet, especially on vacation. Other people who like to be quiet are always welcome to join me, but it hardly ever happens. 🙂

Here are some incredible places I have found that make me want to hit the used bookstore with my man and my puppy for a big bag of tattered reads and design mags and then retreat to a mountain cabin for a couple days consisting of literary hibernation and occasional breaks for baking and day hikes.

Here are some wonderful quotes on reading I had to share. If you’re not as big a fan of reading as I am, skip on down to the pictures. 😀

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.  ~Anna Quindlen

Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.  ~P.J. O’Rourke
Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend.  Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.  ~Groucho Marx

I find television to be very educating.  Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book.  ~Groucho Marx

To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations – such is a pleasure beyond compare.  ~Kenko Yoshida

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We should read to give our souls a chance to luxuriate.  ~Henry Miller
