If you’ve clicked through to this post, you’re probably already familiar with Book Corners, but in case you’re not, I’ll let you know. A book corner is a small scene or world in which you can insert yourself. a shelf. You can convey a beloved scene from a book, a favorite character, or a whimsical setting. What makes it so charming is that it sits between your books!

I first learned about these cute little worlds when my friend showed me her adorable book corners that took her weeks to make. She enjoyed cutting and measuring each piece and assembling them into a beautiful scene, but that attention to detail isn’t for everyone. And it doesn’t have to be either! If you’re not too crafty, but want to add a cute touch to your bookshelf, you can buy a book nook.

When it comes to pricing, it depends on your level of participation. Expect to pay more for fully finished book corners. For all those details, from intricate windows to small books, you can easily pay over $100. If that’s not in your budget, you can buy a kit! Some book corner kits provide instructions and all the wood and acrylic parts, while others ship some parts to you but require you to purchase your own tools.

For this post, I’m going to include two complete book corners that are ready for you to put on your shelves and some nice kits for you to spend time putting together after work. Sure, I’ve provided a few that illustrate some of my favorite books, but there are others that simply capture a pretty street or library hidden in the dark. Whatever you fancy, I hope you find some that you can imagine in your own space. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the wonderful bookish delights you can place between your books.
