Sen­sual Sum­mer Read­ing

There are sea­sons to read­ing, and sum­mer­time read­ing brings a wide smile to the face of avid read­ers. It’s not just the stories pub­lish­ers print this time of year, se­lected to de­light and in­trigue, but the ad­di­tion of ex­cel­lent and nec­es­sary props that go along sum­mer read­ing.

The fur­ni­ture turned so that sun­light hits the pages straight on. Some­thing cold in a tall glass, so we don’t have to stop read­ing too of­ten to re­fill it. A chair that, like well-de­signed shoes, set­tles the reader com­fort­ably back­wards. Fur­ni­ture with arms that in­vite us to loop up a knee, or a padded set­tee in which we can turn up­side down, feet over­top the back rest. Grav­ity makes it harder to sip while read­ing, but eas­ier to smile.
