A German firm has come up with what might be the perfect solution:
"Bookinist is a movable chair
designed especially for reading.
It is based on the principle of a pushcart
and can be rolled to a favourite
Ca. 80 paperbacks can be stored in
the armrests and the backrest.
Inclusive reading lamp and 2 hidden
compartments for writing utensils
in the armrests."
Thanks to Nikki Williams of Watzek Library for pointing this out.
