The Book Seat is an Australian invention designed by an avid reader from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. While working in disability & running a small creative business, the mother of two spent most of her evenings, as book lovers do, reading a good book in bed. Bibliophiles know the real struggle when it comes to finding comfortable reading positions. Cramped hands, sore arms, constantly shifting about to give one hand a rest. And so, from this discomfort, an idea was born.     

 A dream of something to hold her book in place with the pages open for her, so she could really relax and read in bed. A support for the book that allowed her to keep her arms comfortable, cozy & warm under the covers. An innovation that would enable her to read endlessly without experiencing those aches and pains of awkward reading positions. 

This came to be, The Book Seat. The hands free solution for a more relaxed & comfortable reading experience. 

Now, along with her brother, daughter and two other much loved staff, Cindy and her team manage the production and International supply of The Book Seat from her Melbourne based business. As the manufacturer and intellectual property owner, we provide The Book Seat worldwide from various final assembly & fulfilment centres located in the UK, Canada, the US, New Zealand and Australia. 

We proudly support local business & communities through our choice of these companies. Locations where final assembly, quality control, packaging & dispatch of The Book Seat take place, are chosen with a focus on disability support. Cindy made this decision early on as a way to continue her involvement in the disability sector and because of how important these types of facilities are to those needing assisted employment opportunities.
