I’ve always had a hard time keeping the books open for me to read, and since I prefer reading the book while in bed, I find it extra hard to keep the book open with my hand holding the book above me.

I searched amazon for a solution and got out with this little book holder/spreader. It arrived 2 days ago and I’ve tried it and so far, it’s working like a charm. It keeps the paperbacks open and has a good firm grip too. I can easily read a book now without struggling to keep the papers from closing in, and also without straining my palm to keep the papers apart.

The product isn’t perfect and it’s got some flaws:

-It won’t handle big books, or real thick ones.
-It’s a bit hard trying to flip the pages. It needs getting used to.
-The color sucks.

But overall, it does what it is made for.

    Yeah, I love Paperbax. They come in black and grey by the way. Looks like you have a blue one. It is a great little device and I find it dead easy to turn the page. But what is funny is that I use it with my Kindle too. It holds the Kindle like a stand – got the idea from reading some reviews on amazon about people using it for their electronic books. Cook gadget. Love mine

    My nine year old daugher was given a Paperbax in pink. She read all her Harry Potter books with it and loves it. I need to buy 16 for a kids party bag but I am looking for them in pink or blue.Where can I find them in these colors?? I can only find gray right now. I love the gray for me, but the kids will prefer some colored ones I think! Thanks!
