Although many books are already available for read on Kindle, some books still don’t have a Kindle version.
And for some books with lots of graphs/tables are not very well organized on Kindle. Microeconomics is an example. The Kindle version’s price is nearly the same high as paperback, so why do people buy the Kindle version? Sure it’s way lighter, but the type setting is frustrating, according to some of the product reviews.
But after being used to reading on a Kindle, the problem with reading this paperback version is that it’s too heavy to hold it with hands! So I though about a book stand or book holder and actually there are some products out there. Some of them seem promising:
- Bookgem Book Holder – iPad Stand, Kindle, Tablet, & eBook Holder $14.95 – It’s a small gadget. Good for small books but I think the large Microeconomics text book will overwhelm it.
- Jasmine Book Stand (Bookstand / Bookstands / Holder / Cookbook / Music) $29.99 – This one is enough for large books.
- IHD-105 Transparent / Clear Book Stand (Bookstand / Bookstands / Holder / Cookbook / Music) $21.99 – Made by the same producer as the one above but it’s transparent. The same seller also has many other book stand models.
- Levo – LBH – Stand Model Reading Book Holder – Black $169 – This one is perfect and you can read books while you are lying on the bed without holding a heavy book using your hands.
Of course most of the book stands mentioned above also support Kindle/iPad.
