      I use it every day for my nook tablet - I can eat my lunch and read at the same time and don't have to strain - I hear the book stand from B&N doesn't work well - I would recommend the bookchair

      Nice lens! Makes me want a bookchair--I'm always trying to find something to use to prop my books open while I try to eat and read.

      I adore my is the medium size and I have been using it every day since I bought it a month ago. I have found that I tend to read more now, because the book is always there and open to exactly where I left off. It's so cute, a little beach chair.

      [in reply to poutine] It depends on the style of the exercise bikes handlebars. I use a couple of straps on mine for the bookstand to hook onto.

      How would that fit into a stationary bike?

      Nice lens; this would be great for reading anywhere. I read in bed before I go to sleep everynight & my arms get tired, but I keep on reading. Thanks for sharing; I'll have to check these out.

      Interesting idea! I just finished reading a real behemoth of a hardback and could have done with one of these.

      This is a nice lens and a cool idea, especially for reading books on an exercise machine. Good job on this one, as usual! 5* :o)
