Lighting a nook

We had a small, dark, strange alcove in our bedroom.
Stacy decided it would make a nice reading nook, if only we could light it. So, with some expert advice from my father, a bit of work,
and, I think, a decent amount of mess,
I hung, and wired a new lighting fixture and switch.
Now, there's plenty of light in our reading nook:


  1. We took a look.
    We saw a Nook.
    On his head
    he had a hook.

    On his hook
    he had a book.
    On his book
    was "How to Cook."

    We saw him sit
    and try to cook.
    He took a look
    at the book on the hook.

    But a Nook can't read,
    so a Nook can't cook.
    SO . . .
    what good to a Nook
    is a hook cook book?

    (by Dr Seuss)

  2. You should see if Barnes and Nobel will pay you to read a Nook about a Nook in the nook.
