Reading is magic this Wallpaper Wednesday

You don't have to pull out a complex new theme like Spider-Man to bring a breath of fresh air to your home screen. A new wallpaper can do wonders, and launchers like Action Launcher can re-theme your entire home screen around a good wallpaper. In our effort to help brighten your device — and maybe your day — we're compiling some wallpapers for you to try out.

If you've got a wallpaper you use everywhere, share it in the comments below! We're always looking for something new. Now get your wallpaper picker ready and see what's in store this week.

Reading is magic... and dragons

We all have those books we wish would come to life around us... and then there are the books that come to life as they draw us in. While we might not all want to summon mystical dragons through ancient tomes, I'm sure there's more than a few Game of Thrones readers who want one of Dany's dragons to join them as they read their way through Westeros. Or a dire wolf to cuddle with while they read.

Midnight Reading by PascalCampion

Who hasn't stayed up long into the nigh reading?

One more chapter... one more chapter... I can't sleep until I know what happens! We've all had these nights. Staying up till 4 a.m. with a book that will not allow you to put it down and get your much-needed rest. I still regularly stay up till 2 a.m. eyes glued to my screen as I read in bed. At least when reading on your phone you're required to hang it up and go to bed when your battery empties...

Forgotten Library by Tryingtofly

This is a library that needs some loving.

Libraries may seem unnecessary in a world where we all have millions of books at our fingertips along with the rest of the internet, but we hope libraries don't fall into quite this forgotten disrepair. Then again, this library seems like a safe haven of knowledge in some post-apocalyptic world...

Reading is everywhere

While we all love to curl up with a good book in the safety and comfort of our own home, reading is a fun, reality-escaping activity that you can enjoy everywhere. Head to the park with a book and imagine the trees around you are a dense, elven forest. Read beachside and dream of the mermaids that could be hiding beneath the waves. Just make remember to stay hydrated while reading in the sun or the shade this summer.

A Good Book and a Cup by hyouro

Who doesn't want to curl up with a book and a nice comfy drink?

Reading can suck you in, and while stopping to drink some water might feel like a pain, having a nice cup of tea to go along with your Victorian romance novel can help you feel even more like you're right there alongside your demure duchess or your dashing detective.

  • Love the last picture so bad! Thanks Ara! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Seven Eves = Epic
  • Ara, you remind me that I used to do DeviantArt anime wallpaper all the time. I might have to scratch that itch again soon. I've been consumed with material design and Terra Collection dark themes as of late. That may change now. Good piece. Posted via my LG G5
  • Nothing beats an automatic wallpaper changer app to keep things fresh, IMO. (Still using 500 Firepaper here).
  • Yeah, but those leave significantly less to write about, lol. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Dumb question and it may have been answered previously, but with phone wallpaper normally only being viewed in portrait orientation, why are so many of these weekly wallpaper suggestions landscape pictures. Sure you can crop the sides off the image but then you loose the whole point of the art. Posted via the Android Central App
  • For tablets, and for desktops, since these also post on iMore and Windows Central. And because we can have scrolling wallpapers on Android. Posted via the Android Central App
