Would a hobbit hole be your perfect reading spot?
There are many perfect reading spots, indoors and outdoors (as a child my favourite was the staircase, much to my family’s annoyance).

However, I’m sure that most of us are quietly wishing we could be reading somewhere else.
Today, having glanced at an article about the upcoming second instalment of J.R.R.Tolkien’s much loved fantasy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, I decided there would be no better place to read than in a cosy hobbit-hole, quiet and tranquil. It turns out this is entirely possible, as hobbit-hole tree houses have apparently become a popular thing…
