my literary pursuit continues… elsewhere

hi, this blog has long since been discontinued due to loss of interest and work/personal commitments. nonetheless, i still have a passion for books and reading. 

i’ve started a tumblr called what i’m reading, which is self-explanatory. (occasionally, when i’m in the mood, i will probably blog more than just about my current reads.) if you’re interested, come check me out at http://nylusmilk.tumblr.com

see ya around – and don’t stop reading!

Have a seat with all your books


The complete furniture for a reader: light, seat and storage.


I would feel quite uncomfortable sitting on this book chaise. The books look quite real from here!


This has to be my personal favourite though I can imagine how difficult it would be to maintain it. Think of its dust-worthy potential.


This is so cute! I’d put shoes there, though, I think.


I’m liking this too.


A bigger and more awesome version of the previous bookseat/shelf thingy.


An even bigger and more awesome version of the previous! Reminds me of a diner. Super cool!

Nooks to read my book

I like curling up on the couch with a book best. I do read in bed occasionally but I find that it makes me sleepy after a while, especially when I don’t intend to take a nap. (It’s usually like that, though, isn’t it?) And now I spout the line I’ve said in several posts before – when I own my own home some day, I’d like to have reading nooks like the ones below I found from freshome.

Yes, I clearly have a thing for window box seats.

For outdoorsy reading nooks, these are the ones (also from freshome) I like.

If you want to create a relaxing reading nook of your own, here are some tips.

Bookish Wallpapers


Not exactly a wallpaper but it could be. A trompe l’oeil library by artist Adam Dant.


Looks a bit spooky but I like it.


Oooh, I like this too. I like how natural it looks.


This is absolutely mind-boggling. Books from floor to ceiling, literally! If only I can visit this cafe.


Right now, I’d be perfectly contented with some bookish art, something bright and abstract like this one.
