ArchReader Pillow – Idea for the Final Project

When I imagine myself reading, I picture a few standard positions, none of which are particularly comfortable for my neck, back, or shoulders.

Reading positions by Kate Beaton

I wish I owned a thousand dollar recliner, but I don’t. So most of the time that I curl up with a book, I either tuck my neck into my chest as I lie on my couch, or I pop my shoulder up and around my ear as I support my body weight on my elbow in bed. It’s enough to make me want to trade in my library for a TB of audiobooks.

I’d like to make a pillow to let me lie in bed and read comfortably. (Further options: lights, sounds, collapsibility/portability, multiple orientations)
