It’s confession time folks. I have recently bought what might be the silliest product ever. And I love it.
First, the justification. Winter is approaching fast here in Australia and as someone who is a bit of a cheapskate and who is also aiming to be more environmentally responsible I try not to rely on heating if I don’t really have to.
When reading in my favourite chair I use layers of clothes, ugg boots and a blanket to ward off the chills. But the blanket has never been a terribly satisfactory solution because I always have to reach out from under to hold the book or turn the page.
Which is where my new purchase comes in.
I bought a blanket with sleeves. They have been advertising them on late night TV for ages at a price beyond a cheapskate’s budget but when Catch of the day recently had them on sale I succumbed to temptation.
I think it is my new favourite reading accessory. It is so snuggly (it’s made of polar fleece) and I can stay warm underneath it without having to uncover my arms and let the cold in.
My only concern is that it might send me completely bonkers as the people in this clip appear to be (although so far I’ve had no urges to dance around in my blanket or wear it to a local tourist attraction).
So…What about you? Do you have a favourite reading accessory? Something that brings something extra to your reading experience? A light? A stand? Anything as silly (but lovely) as a blanket with sleeves?
