Some of the best reading happens in bed, whether for a marathon read or the nightly ritual. Sometimes you’re sitting up, leaning against a reading pillow. Other times you’re lying down. I’m sure that some of you have wished at some point that reading in bed was easier on the arms or neck. I know I have.
We’ve recommended thumb book holders before here on Book Riot. They can really reduce hand fatigue from having to hold a book open for so long. They work great seated or lying down. But what if you want a hands-free book holder? Sure, you could use a book holder designed for desks. But wouldn’t it be nice to invest in a hands-free book holder specially designed for the reclining reader? The right book holders for reading in bed could really make a difference.
For a snuggly and soft solution, I’ve listed some great options below for plush book holders that you wouldn’t mind having on your blanket. I’ve also listed options in case you wanted something more structured, especially if you have neck issues and truly want to recline with no weight to the neck while reading. Check them out and see if they could work for you!
