Kerry Wright recently decorated her two-year-old daughter’s room, but she didn’t just slap up a coat of paint and call it a day. Wright wanted the room to be a place that would spark her daughter’s imagination and encourage her to read. So she added characters and scenes from over 90 different classic works of fiction, and she left plenty of space on the walls so that her daughter could add additional characters and scenes whenever she’s ready.

Harry-Potter-Colouring

These days, coloring books aren’t just for kids. For adults, they’re a great way to relax, relieve stress and be creative. That having been said, spectacular new Harry Potter coloring books are available now and there are more on the way.

The original Harry Potter Coloring Book was released in November of 2015 and a new Harry Potter Magical Creatures Coloring Book was released this week. Upcoming editions are available for pre-order and include Harry Potter Magical Places & Characters and Harry Potter Postcards (March 2016), along with Harry Potter Artifacts (June 2016).

Postcards is 40 pages, but the other four books are all 96 pages full of gorgeous Harry Potter-themed art for you to color as you sip wine and hang out by the fire.

wheel of time bookshelf

A regular bookshelf just won’t do when it comes to the Wheel Of Time series, so Tumblr user hubsy91 made one that spins. Plus, it keeps the books level all the way round.

A dad who happens to be an artist in the video game industry put his skills to work crafting a tree-shaped reading room for his daughter.

It’s definitely among the most impressive parent DIY projects we’ve ever seen.

The process required 350 hours of free time over an 18 month period and cost about $4,250. The final result includes a sitting area with a reading light and illuminated knot hole fairy windows that are on a dimmer, providing “awesome nightlights”.

The project is detailed in the gallery below, and judging from his daughter’s smile, it was well received.

Excuse me, but I’m going to need someone to lend me their child so I have an excuse to buy these frickin’ adorable new Star Wars Little Golden Book titles. Five new books have been added to the first round of movie versions released last year.

With titles like I Am a Pilot, I Am a Droid and I Am a Jedi how can I resist? Note that I Am a Sith and I Am a Princess (not pictured) are slated for release in July 2016.

Take a closer look at the covers below.

sw cross sections

Back in March of 2015, 20 new books were announced as part of the Journey To The Force Awakens. There were novels like Claudia Gray’s Lost Stars and Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath, and there were short stories like Greg Rucka’s Before The Awakening.

But one of the coolest things to come out of the JTTFA were the reference books from DK Publishing. One of those books is Star Wars: The Force Awakens Incredible Cross-Sections, which delves into the vehicles. From the Millennium Falcon to Rey’s Speeder to the new TIE Fighter, this is a delicious deep dive into what makes these vehicles work.

When she purchased a new home in June, she decided to take the unused (and kind of unloved) space under the stairs and turn it into a Harry Potter cupboard bedroom-themed reading nook. A little carpentry, some book pages as wallpaper (from a damaged book, so no worries there) and a few Harry Potter touches and now she has a space where she can read to her boys or they can go off and read on their own.

Take a closer look at the space in the images below.
