When someone says “Check out my book nook,” I think of an area in their home that is dedicated to sitting and reading.

Turns out, there is ANOTHER type of book nook that you need to check out!

These cute diorama-type boxes fit right into your bookshelf, hidden in plain sight between the books, and they are the coolest things EVER!

The book nook little boxes are made into SO many different things. You might see an alleyway from Harry Potter, or you might see a winter scene from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, it may be a fairyland, or even a teeny tiny library. Basically, your book nook can be WHATEVER you want.

The only rule seems to be that the book nook shelf insert is about the size of a book or two, and it fits right on your bookshelf for eager eyes to find.

Some book nooks actually light up or have moving parts. Some are printed on 3D printers. Some are made from craft supplies that people have made into cute little book scenes.

They can be crazy elaborate, or they can be simple and charming. It just depends what you want.

They can even be spooky, to match your taste in literature.

You can buy them already made, or you can get your creative juices flowing, and make one yourself.

Whatever you decide to do, I’m going to need to see a picture! They are hella cool, and I absolutely LOVE them!

Did you know that the Harry Potter series is coming out in an ILLUSTRATED edition? They are GORGEOUS, and a book nook would be PERFECT along with these beautiful books!
