The Reading Space

Add a space exclusively for reading in any room of you choice. It should not be a big one if there is space constraint. Use the wall for book shelves. Make sure that you have a comfortable chair to sit on while reading. Reading is fun and a great way to relax yourself after a hard day’s work.
