If you have a Fred's near you, they have really cute children's hampers that you can use to put books in for about $6. I'm sure they have them at plenty of other stores as well.
Here's my froggy:

And here's the sign I made for my reading area:

Thanks for that great site! THere were some wonderful ideas. I use pillows and stuffed animals. I have had some trouble with students checking out books, but I like the chart system shown.

What exactly do you do with the hampers? Do you keep the books in there regularly and the kids go through them? Sorry I'm a first year teacher and trying to get some ideas and I thought your hamper was cute! Thanks!

Laundry baskets. They are cheap, stackable and perfect for one kid to sit in at a time.

I used the hamper in my reading/AR center. Every week I had a theme and I would pick out AR books around that theme and put them in his belly. Then the kids could pick out whatever they wanted to read about that theme then put them back in the frog.

I love the idea of the frog chairs. I hope that I can find some for my Garden themed room.

I LOVE the reader's clubhouse on that Reader Corners Pics website. I don't have room in my room for a reading corner really. I will do good if I can manage a separate centers area.

Fantastic websites ya'll! Really awesome links to look at. I would say before you start getting a ton of things for your classroom library though, think about how you want to manage it first. This past year I didn't have a set plan for independent reading time this next year I'm going to be following some of Beth Newingham's site.
