Reading Nook Update + Giveaway

Last I updated you on our reading nook it had a serious issue, which was that the chair was awful- beautiful, but terribly uncomfortable to sit in. We lived with that mistake for a while, holding on to aesthetics over comfort, but it’s time we sought out to have both.
