Evidence

"The single bed proved very unsuitable for Joseph Conrad, because apart from its legitimate purpose as a resting place, his bed had to be hospitable to a heap of books, all open and face downwards, maps, bed-rest, and more than once a wooden Spratt"s dog-biscuit box he had ordered his man to place at the foot of the bed to brace his feet against."

Notes
This is submitted as evidence of both 'spaces of reading' and 'rhythms of reading' (in this case reading several books at once). The single bed was acquired at the time of the marriage between the Conrad's chauffeur Charles Vinten and Jessie's nurse/maid Audrey Seal, to whom Joseph Conrad, according to his wife, donated his more comfortable double bed as a wedding present.
