It’s a cold rainy Monday afternoon in November and you’ve got the day off of work. You’ve spent the morning running errands or doing chores around the house. Now it’s time to chill. If you’re like me, the absolute number one way to spend the afternoon is to ensconce yourself in a comfy chair with a big fleece blanket and a pile of books, comics, magazines, or all of the above.
When designing my dream nerd cave, my first priority was a comfortable place to read. However, the room still needs to function as a guest bedroom. The queen-sized bed that we had, while comfortable, took up way too much room. Plus, I’ve had too many reading sessions in bed turn into nap sessions, so I’ve got to stay more or less vertical.
