A couple of literary treats

Written by Lisa Spurgin, 22nd May 2014

pillowOver the last couple of days we've been sent some links on Twitter that have sparked the literary love within us (although it's always burning strong), and as they received a lot of interest from our followers too we thought we'd share them here on The Reader Online as well.

These wonderful book pillows will ensure that you have sweet literary dreams, and will also have something very close on hand to read when you're suffering bouts of insomnia. If you're intrigued, they're available to buy from ThinkGeek.
