Organizing the Books, for Kids Who Read in Bed

bed rail that's also a bookshelf

Reading in bed is a pleasure for kids and adults alike — but how do you store the books your children are reading? Just today I came across two products designed to address this issue. The first is Tambino's clever combination of a bookshelf and a bed rail, also available through Etsy. Note: "Intended for kids over the age of two, who can get up and down from the bed unassisted. Not intended for the upper level of a bunkbed (upper bunk rails are longer)." [via Furniture Fashion]

But here's a product that is intended for use in the upper level of a bunkbed: the Tidy Books Bunk Bed Buddy, which holds books and assorted small items. Tidy Books also sells other neat products for organizing children's books, including the Tidy Box.

Love the Tidy Books Bunk Bed Buddy! Are you aware of anything like that available in the USA? Pretty pricey with exchange rates and shipping costs from the UK.

Thelittlebird, did you see the U. S. store? It's $79, with free delivery.

Love these photos. Gave me an idea. My daughter has a bed that doesn't have a headboard so I was thinking of making one with a place for books and a small shelf. I always tell my clients that organizing is a creative process! I am always thinking of how I can make my space more creatively organized.

Sabrina, I agree - organizing can be a very creative process! (I never thought of expressing it in just those words before.)
