Summer is in full swing, which means I want to be outdoors in a cozy book nook spot instead of inside. This isn’t just any place, my outdoor reading nook is a place where I can set my favorite smoothie, watch the kiddo play and lose myself between the pages for a while.

Check out some of my favorite outdoor book nook ideas, from the fancy and dreamy ideas to the simple and cozy place to put your feet up and check out your favorite book!

This sweet little spot looks like a great place to curl up with a good read! The wicker furniture makes the place comfy, but it’s that sweet pennant banner that really livens up this outside book nook. I can see this working for a screened in porch quite nicely.
