On the one hand, this “book holder” I read about on Book Patrol is pretty ingenious. It holds the book for you at the perfect angle for relaxed, comfortable reading. There’s just one problem – exactly how slow of a reader are you, that it isn’t more inconvenient to unstrap the book and turn the page than it is to just hold the book?
The funny thing is, a similar invention got turned in for Kimbooktu’s book gadget contest, only that one was a clear glass table you put your book on and then laid underneath. That seems really impractical to me – like many inventions, brilliant, but only up to a point! 🙂
