    Promising review: "It looks great and it's also really comfy. It's quickly become my go-to spot. The best part of course is that it's a comfortable place to rest after work. I bought the matching chair afterward and can't wait for it to arrive!" —Ari

    Price: $1,010 (originally $4,323.30)

    2. A mini Keurig single-serve coffee maker to keep you caffeinated while simultaneously staying tucked tidily away on a bookshelf somewhere. You won't even need to leave your reading space for coffee. Now THAT'S what I call ~luxury~.

    Promising review: "I bought this coffee maker when moving into my freshman college dorm and it is the best purchase I have made! It is skinny and small, perfect for a dorm or apartment. It is also single-serve, which saves a lot of material since I am only making one cup at a time! Definitely worth the investment" —Moni

    Price: $74.80 (Originally $79.99, available in three colors)

    3. A leaning ladder desk for when you decide to do the occasional work in your personal library space. Don't worry — you can still stack books on the upper shelves for easy access during work breaks.

    The desk in barnwood

    Promising review: "I love this desk! Its sleek, sturdy, and compact, yet has space for so much of what I use. It fits great in the small space I have and allows me to keep the items I use most often at a hand's reach. One of the best items I've gotten so far!" —Jaunna

    Price: $119.99 (originally $259, available in four colors)

    4. A geometric table lamp with two USB charging ports because you can be the biggest Luddite in the world, but at the end of the day you probably still need to charge your phone.

    Price: $289.99 (originally $399, available in three colors)

    6. A wooden serving tray so classic and simple it'll make every beverage break feel like a full-on afternoon tea. And thank goodness for that because the Bridgerton books have me wanting high tea every day of the week!

    Promising review: "I was looking for a simple serving tray at an affordable price. This fit the bill." —Wendy

    Price: $30.99 

    7. A combination end table and magazine rack with storage on the bottom for books, tablets, magazines — basically, the options are endless.

    The end table in brown and black

    Promising review: "OK. THIS END TABLE. So easy to assemble. Fits in the small space. I bought this because my husband has a TON of magazines and he wanted a place to store them. Once I found this, I clicked purchase without any second-guessing. 12/10 recommend." —Anna

    Price: $64.99+ (originally $78.02, available in two colors)

    8. A decorative storage bookshelf that works as a holding place for things beyond books as well, in case you're in the market for some versatility.

    The storage bookcase with nine cubbies in white

    Promising review: "This was so worth buying. Solid construction and looks much nicer than something that you build yourself. I have this in my nursery right now but it would work in so many places in our house." —Renee

    Price: $226.99+ (available in four colors)

    9. A faux-sheepskin rug to help craft that cozy library space you've always dreamed of. Where are my reading-on-the-floor people at?

    Price: $33.99+ (originally $51.99, available in seven sizes and eight colors) 

    10. A wall-mounted electric fireplace for that cozy, romantic energy of studying by a fire — without having to deal with the hassle of construction work or firewood at all!

    The fireplace on a green wall

    Promising review: "Amazing quality. There’s an orange flame, a blue flame, and an orange-and-blue combination flame. The heat output is also amazing. In less than a half an hour it heats my medium-size bedroom completely." —Iyonna

    Price: $309.99+ (originally $699.99, available in three sizes)

    11. A framed painting of a girl reading so even when you aren't there, your personal library is constantly occupied by someone with their nose in a book.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love! So perfect for my space. Comfy and pretty. I didn't use the pillow it came with, but still love it!" —Brittany

    Price: $279.99+ (available in five colors) 

    13. A rustic-inspired solid-wood coffee table with a lower storage shelf perfect for storing all those massive coffee table books you've been thrifting as of late. Secondhand TikTok will be the death of my available storage space...

    Price: $204.99+ (originally $434.05, available in five colors)

    The shelf with a framed photo and plant on top

    Promising review: "These floating shelves are exactly what we were looking for! My husband and I installed them fairly easily. Love the look it gives in our living room. Great quality. Highly recommend." —Samantha

    Price: $107.99+ (available in seven sizes)

    15. A faux taxidermy deer head for that "old-world library meets hunting lodge" feel in a cruelty-free manner. If my personal library doesn't feel vaguely like a museum, I don't want it.

    Wayfair, Kayla / Wayfair

    Promising review: "Love this faux deer head! It has received lots of compliments from my guests. The perfect touch to my bedroom decor and great quality. A little heavy so needs to be hung up on a stud. I'm very happy with this purchase." —Kayla

    Price: $146.99 (available in 14 colors)

    16. A blackout curtain panel perfect for those people who prefer a cool, dark library vibe. Dark academia, if you will.

    Price: $12.02+ (originally $20.99, available in 11 sizes and 23 colors)

    Price: $41.59+ (originally $49.99, available in two sizes and in 35 colors)

    the gold wall shelves

    Promising review: "They are nice and sturdy. A great addition to the home office. They are in a brushed rustic brassy gold color." —Amanjot

    Price: $65.99 (originally $110)

    20. A tall and thin bookshelf for those of us working with limited space and what seems to be unlimited reading materials to store.


    Promising review: "Great bookcase for a small space. Very easy to assemble — looks great in our industrial-farmhouse decor." —Sue

    Price: $97.99+ (originally $103.99+, available in two sizes)

    21. A set of three floating shelves to elevate book-adjacent knickknacks and any other decor you want displayed in your reading room.


    Promising review: "Very nice, great for my daughter’s nursery and additional shelving for my home office." —Link

    Price: $44.99 for three

    22. A reclining chaise lounge with a removable ottoman — if you're looking for a chair that has main-character-from-the-novel-you're-reading-right-now-energy, this would be it.

    Lisa / Wayfair, Jojo / Wayfair

    Promising review: "I loooove this chair! Very easy to put together and very sturdy. I’ve gotten so many compliments." —Ci

    Price: $449.99 (originally $649.99, available in three colors)

    23. Or try a two-toned chaise lounge that's both luxurious AND functional. The secret storage compartment underneath is delightfully dramatic, yet practical...I think I'm in love!


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this! I got it in pink. It was very easy to put together. The quality is great and it's comfortable. It's easy to adjust the end for naps and the storage part is easy to lift. You can change the end to three positions by pushing it forward — you will hear a metal clicking sound. You can lay it completely flat, halfway, or fully upright. It's not too heavy so it's easy to move around my TV room when I want to lie on my side." —Wayfair customer

    Price: $629.99 (available in four colors)

    24. A vibrant wall tapestry to balance out your space with another equally beautiful art form and add a cozy feel to a patch of wall unoccupied by shelving.

    the vase with flowers tapestry hanging on a rod

    Promising review: "I really love this tapestry. It is absolutely beautiful! You can't get any better and the price is amazing! The colors are rather muted, so it's not 'in your face,' and I like that. The material is thick and very well made. It looks much more expensive, believe me!" —Rosemary

    Price: $40.99 (originally $45.99) 

    25. An adjustable bookshelf with larger spacing for those massive books you've resorted to stacking in the dusty corner of your room. Finally, these heavy-duty hardcovers will have the home they deserve.

    Wayfair, Melissa / Wayfair

    Promising review: "Super easy to put together, and looks much higher-end than the price tag! We picked this up for our teenage daughter's room — she graduated from 'little girl' bookshelves to this one and is VERY pleased!" —Melissa

    Price: $219.99 (available in five colors)

    26. A bookshelf with a bottom cabinet because even bibliophiles need some tucked away storage sometimes... You know, like for the YA novels we're too ashamed to display on the higher-up shelves. (This attack is directed at the complete hardcover collection of Twilight sitting on my desk right now and is in *no way* meant to be about you.)

    the bookcase with a bottom cabinet

    Promising review: "Love this cabinet! Came very quickly and the color of the wood is beautiful. Super excited to have my stuff in there" —Natalie

    Price: $144.99 (originally $155.99)

    27. A framed teacup and book print to set that "light academia meets cottagecore" mood you're going for.


    Promising review: "Perfect addition to my basement library bar/lounge." —Tatiana

    Price: $88.99+ (originally $111.50+, available in five sizes)

    28. A roll of textured wallpaper with a vintage look that you'll have to put up the old-fashioned way (read: You *will* need wallpaper paste) but with 4.7 stars, the end result is certainly worth the hassle.


    Promising review: "Obsessed! Beautiful, takes paint well but looks great unpainted as well. I would highly recommend" —Krystal

    Price: $50.99 per roll

    29. Or grab a roll of peel-and-stick wallpaper for a more renter-friendly way to elevate your new reading space.

    The juniper forest wallpaper in a bathroom

    Promising review: "It's a beauty! Vibrant, whimsical, and so fun." —Caitlyn

    Price: $84.99 per roll

    30. A pair of taxidermy angel wings to add a ~fantastical~ element to the walls of your library. Now you'll be all ready to fly off to your fantasy world every time you open a book.

    the wings in black

    Promising review: "These wings are absolutely beautiful. They look exactly like the picture online and look old and weathered. Actually, they look like they have been hand carved. I have received many compliments on them with my friends wanting to know where I got them. I searched and searched for a set of wings and was absolutely thrilled when I came across these." —Rebecca

    Price: $156.99 (available in five colors)

    31. A rounded-top steel bookcase that I feel like Belle would buy in bulk for Prince Adam's (the beast's) castle after officially moving in. Folks, does the time your now-prince-former-beast held you captive count as y'all living together? Please let me know your thoughts.

    Wayfair, Samantha / Wayfair

    Promising review: "I got two of these and absolutely love them. I was worried about weight because we have a lot of books; so far they’re holding up great! They look beautiful." —Tricia

    Price: $187.99 (originally $219.99)
