Ad failed to load

With the holiday season behind us, January marks a slower time of year for many. Sure, you're starting to work hard on all of those 2018 goals and resolutions, but you also probably have a bit more downtime on your hands than you have in the past couple of months. And what are you going to do with all that downtime? Read, of course! But you need to get prepared. Picked out the best spot on your bed, sofa or reading chair? Good! Got a mug of tea, hot chocolate or some other warm beverage? Perfect. Layered up a favorite cozy blanket or two? Great! Stacked a few must-reads next to you. Of course you did. You're almost there.

But no reading cave would be complete without pillows. Yes, I'm talking multiples here. And because you should be saving the support of your nighttime pillows for sleep exclusively, you're going to need a few new ones. So you're going to take notes on the list below. There are 13 gorgeous bookish-inspired pillows for you to prop up, snuggle with, and get cozy with while you work through your TBR. With any one (or two or three) of these around, reading will be cozier than ever.
