It is a very small beetle. I think it may bite. Found while lying in my bed reading (not under the covers).

This is a Variegated Carpet Beetle, Anthrenus verbasci, and while they do not bite, they are considered Household Pests. We have been getting numerous photos of their larvae in recent weeks.
Thank you! That confirms my additional Internet research. Love your site!
