Whether you're a one-chapter-a-night kind of gal or serious reader, we can all agree that it doesn't get much better than ending the day with a book in bed. The kids are asleep, the dishes are done (well, most of the time), and the screens are turned off. It's just you and your favorite read.

It's especially nice when our bedrooms are designed just right, too. Creating a serene space in a layered bed with mood lighting can really set the tone for a good evening read. While practical book lights are always helpful, we love a pretty bedside table lamp that offers style during the day and book beams by night. After all, a smart bedside table and lamp combination is essential to the style and comfort of your bedroom. If you're looking to spruce up your side table, we've rounded up a few of our favorite bedside lamps from around the web. Now just don't stay up too late when that chapter ends in a cliffhanger.
