A couple of literary treats

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.

Most of us curl up with a good book each night before bed,  and it can be a wrench to have to put them down in order to go to sleep. Now there is a solution – at least if you’re currently reading Alice in Wonderland, the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes or Treasure Island. 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.
