I'm 5' 3" What is comfortable for me probably won't work for you. I use a Laz-Y-Boy chair at this time, but much of their furniture isn't a good fit.

Hit the local furniture stores and do some sitting.

Definitely. I'd never buy a chair sight-unseen. It's such a personal thing, that you need to try them yourself.

I have a lovely leather motorised reclining armchair, which is very comfortable, and has nice wide arms I can rest heavy books on.

But, you can get recommendations on what to look at.

Are there well-known brands of chairs? Around these parts, most furniture retailers seem to make their own to order.

My present chair came from the local St. Vincent De Paul store. It's a recliner. Not too wide arms but then I read on my Kindle Paperwhite most often. I agree that a chair is a personal thing. What feels comfortable to me may be too hard or too soft to you.

What we need to know is where the OP lives.

Yep, it's kinda hard to recommend a chair not knowing what climate the OP lives in. That'll play a factor in determining the frame (wood vs metal) and the covering (fabric vs leather), and if the OP is vegan, we certainly can't be recommending a leather chair. So many factors

My usual recommendation for a comfortable chair is the Eames Lounge Chair -- the most comfortable I have ever been in a chair. To be honest, they are very expensive, but there are plenty of look-alike versions out there that I have found to be every bit as comfortable for a small fraction of the price.
