Many people enjoy reading in bed. Books, magazines, and journals can all easily begin to pile up after a while if we are not careful. A great way to control the book clutter is to set up a book reading back. You can use a sturdy handmade bag that will work great to hold your favorite reading materials and things you like to enjoy before falling asleep at night.

If you find you have more books than your bag can hold, this is your clue that you have too many. Instead of making a stack, you can return the extra books where you normally keep them and save those for later reading. This is an easy-to-make cloth bag using old clothes or leftover fabric that is lying around the house. The bag can easily be hung on the headboard which keeps the books close by when ready to read.
