“Lady Autumn paints the scenery with golden hues; her crown bears the fruit of the season’s bounty as the earth gives up her gifts, marking the time to gather in the harvest. Nature provides the glorious finale with a curtain of rich color before the leaves fall, in a final flourish and fitting swansong to the season.”
Lady Autumn appears as one of our Supporting Characters and a timing card in our deck. She’s one of my favourites because I do so love this time of year. Halloween is approaching, conkers are bursting from their shells, leaves make that lovely crisp, crunching sound as you walk over them, the evenings get a little darker and rainy day weather provides the perfect excuse to stay in and get cosy with a good book. All you need is a spot to curl up in and escape into the pages . . . a book nook, if you will.
So where is your reading haven; by the fire, in bed? Do you have a small corner or a whole room to withdraw to? I’ve gathered a collection of inspiring images of different types of book nooks on my pinterest page: http://www.pinterest.com/Emsleby/book-nooks/. Have a browse and let me know what you think. For now, here is my own nook in the corner of my study/mini-library.
