15 Wooden Book Stands That’ll Improve Your Reading Life

Support for reading your books is a game changer, whether by helping you read longer or as an assistive device for readers who have chronic pain or injuries that make holding a book upright a challenge. Wooden book stands are among my favorite styles of reading support, and there are so many excellent choices out there.

Whether you’re in the market for your first of many wooden book stands or you’re itching to add one to even more spaces in your home—one for your reading area and one for your kitchen, perhaps!—you’ll find an awesome array of them below. Prices range from reasonable to a little pricier, because these are wooden and pricing depends on the type of wood or depth of design, so the fluctuation makes sense.
