When I was in college, everybody had these bed pillows that looked like the back of a chair with arms. We called these pillows “husbands”, and they were great back support while we sat on our beds doing assignments for hours. I had seen a few husbands in stores over the years, but none were as posh and feature-filled as the n•a•p® Massaging Bed Rest pillow at Brookstone. This pillow has a built-in back massager and an attached, adjustable super-bright LED light so you can see to read in comfort. There are storage pockets on the arms to hold your book, reading glasses, and TV remotes – one arm even has a cup holder. It folds up for storage under the bed or in a closet. It comes with an AC adapter. (There are some health precautions in the product information page that you should read before ordering.) The Massaging Bed Rest pillow is $99.95.
