Kindle Fire Holders For Reading in Bed Hands Free

Updated on July 13, 2014

Holding up a Kindle Fire for any extended period of time, like say when reading an ebook or when streaming a movie through Netflix, can get quite tiring on the arms despite the lightweight nature of this tablet. There are also times when you want to be hands free using this tablet anyway, like when you are using it for movie watching for example, as you'll quickly find you have no more desire to be holding a tablet whilst watching a show any more than you'd desire to be holding your TV.

There are a variety of different options to choose from when choosing a Kindle Fire holder for reading in bed which will vary in usefulness dependant on what your main motivation for buy one is. For the average person who wants to watch a movie hands free in bed then a simple Kindle Fire pillow holder might solve your problem. These are lap cushions are designed to prop up a Kindle Fire or other tablet or eReader devices like Kindles and Nooks so you don't have to be holding them all the time.

An alternative to these is a Kindle Fire headboard mount which clamps onto the bedframe and can be swiveled and adjusted so you can find the most comfortable viewing angle whilst you lay in bed. A more versatile arrangement to this is something like one of the adjustable floor stands which leave you completely hands free and at the same time can be used all over the house for a wide variety of purposes.

Kindle Fire Pillow Holders and Cushion Stands

One of the most popular ways people use to go hands free and prop up a Kindle Fire the soft bottom lap pillow stands offered by some manufacturers. This is a popular solution because, unlike similar stands, this style is as comfortable on a hard surface like a desk as it is placed directly across your knees on your lap. This kind of versatility makes a Kindle Fire pillow rest an ideal way to prop up a tablet in bed without having to resort to mounting stands or clamps.

Some popular types of Kindle Fire cushion rests for bed and elsewhere are highlighted below. These are all well rated by customers who love the versatility of this tablet accessory.

If you are looking for a plush pillow stand for Kindle Fire, Motorola Xoom or other tablet computer than the Lap Pro come highly recommended.

This soft, plush pillow is perfect for use as a Kindle Fire stand for bed time reading or movie viewing. It'll prop up the device neatly allow you to rest your arms while you watch, or use an auto page scroller for ereading. Of course, it's not just a Kindle Fire holder for bed but can be used on your lap all over the place and its cushioned bottom will mold nicely to any flat surface without a huge footprint.

Guys, this lap pillow is designed to accommodate our 'wide leg stance' easily, so you can sit cross legged or with your legs apart rather than been stuck in that less comfortable prim, legs together pose more suited to anyone wearing a skirt (or kilt I suppose). The Lap Pro will sit across your legs, straddling the gap like a champion which is something all us guys can rejoice over - finally!

The Lap Pro also doubles as a tote, as you can see from the images on the right, allowing you to carry your tablet around along with some accessories with ease. Its so plush and comfortable it even doubles up as a handy neck pillow for the airplane or long car journeys and the soft microfiber fabric cleans screens too.

    Really cool Kindle Fire holders for reading in bed. I have wondered how people could comfortably read a Kindle in bed.

    Wowwww! Thank you! I love love LOVE My Kindle Fire, but reading in bed does get a little cumbersome. Same with a book, I guess, but I digress. I MUST HAVE this one: EMPIRE Adjustable Flexible Arm Extension Mount for Tablets and eBooks. THANK YOU!
