How To Tuesday: Get Some Pinterest Inspiration for Your Ultimate Reading Nook

When most people read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, they are astonished to learn that The Boy Who Lived sleeps in a cupboard under the stairs. For me, though, it always seemed kind of...cozy.

Don’t get me wrong—sleeping in a cupboard under the stairs is not ideal, but as a reading nook, it could work. Give me an area with soft lighting, pillows, a blanket, and a book, and I’d call this the perfect reading spot—perhaps not for The Boy Who Lived, but for The Person Who Reads. Reading nooks (or corners) provide readers with a designated space for opening a book and shutting out the rest of the world.  

World Book Night Giveaway: Win Photos from Ransom Riggs' Vintage Photography Collection

Today, World Book Night is highlighting Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs over on their Twitter and Facebook. It was a real honor to see Miss Peregrine selected for this awesome program, and I figured we'd run a fun giveaway to celebrate today's social media spotlight. 

Back in 2012, Ransom sent me a small box full of strange black and white photos from his personal vintage photography collection. I've used them now and again for promotions, and now, dear World Book Night people, we're offering a few up to you.

Enter our little Rafflecopter below for a chance to win a hardcover copy of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and one of three photos from Ransom's personal collection. We've also dug deep into the Quirk archives and wrangled up a bunch of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children posters, which we'll also giveaway to random entries after the first three winners are picked. How's... 20 of those posters sound? Good? Good.

You can enter by following Quirk, Ransom, World Book Night, etc. on Twitter and Facebook. Good luck, and thanks again, World Book Night!
