As Mason Cooley once said, “Reading gives us somewhere to go when we need to stay where we are.”
Whether in electronic form or as a physical copy, books are the gateway to many new worlds and experiences. Although acquiring a book is the only prerequisite you need to enjoy it, there are a few accessories that can enhance your reading experience. In this list, you will find five of them along with a description of their features.
1. Flat book light
Do you like to read in a dark room with little or no bright light to set the mood? While that might be good for the vibes, it’s not so good for your eyes. In fact, according to the researchers, nearsightedness, more commonly known as nearsightedness, is common among students who want to enter reading-intensive professions, such as law and medicine. That doesn’t mean you have to turn on those blinding lights and sacrifice your relaxation, because a reading light exists for just that! It is both convenient and advantageous, which makes it safe to call this purchase.
This specific light is available on AliExpress, Walmart, and Amazon and falls in the price range of $10 to $20 USD.
2. Noise canceling headphones
Imagine opening a book in a quiet room and reading for a few minutes before finding yourself sucked into a depicted scene. Imagine it’s a sad scene and you’re able to feel every emotion present, allowing it to tug at your heartstrings and maybe even invite a lump to the back of your throat.
Now imagine your younger brother walking into the room, turning on the TV, and playing an obnoxious cartoon, snapping you out of the false reality you were in just seconds ago. If this applies to you, you might want to consider adding a pair of noise canceling headphones to your cart. In addition to getting rid of distractions, these headphones also protect your hearing and allow you to enjoy a higher quality audio experience.
Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 are pictured above. They retail for between $300 and $400 USD and can be found at Walmart, Dell’s online store, and Best Buy.
3. Book sleeve
Paperbacks wear out more easily and quickly than their hardcover counterparts, so having a book sleeve is essential to protect and ensure a longer life. This product is especially important if you are an avid reader and carry your books everywhere with you, especially in a bag/purse which can cause creases, creases and even tears. In addition to protecting your books, book sleeves can also serve as an accessory to match your outfit and/or fit your aesthetic. All in all a great product to have, especially if you consider yourself a bookworm!
Book sleeves are typically found on Etsy in the $5 to $20 price range.
4. Book stand
Have you ever experienced neck or back pain from reading a book for too long? It can be frustrating when you’re really trying to finish a compelling book, so luckily there’s a remedy for such tension: a book stand! Many people would consider having a book holder to be “too overkill and overkill”, but if you’re an avid reader, this product is a must, if not to protect you from the pain, at least to protect you from the smell fiery. from Bengay.
This particular stand is from Amazon and is in the price range of US$10-$20.
Most of us are always on the go and often can’t afford to sit down and read a book. Fortunately, audiobooks exist for this reason! Having a book downloaded to your device can allow you to continue reading away from your physical copy of the book and possibly even multitask. For example, you could jog and start a new chapter, come home and read the last few pages, then hop in your car and start another chapter. It’s the definition of comfort.
