Your Favorite Reading Chair

With this handy creation, your hands will be free while the chair props up your book, magazine or thesis paper. You'll find dozens of places to use it: in the kitchen to hold recipes, next to your computer to hold documents, beside the bathtub to keep your pages dry. It's also terrific to hold a day planner in a position that makes it easily readable and accessible. And it folds flat for easy storage. Made in India.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Comments about BOOK CHAIR:

We have used the plastic ones for years and this one holds up much better. Can hold a medium sized book with no problem. Very sleek too. Folds up when not in use. Looks great for business people; very professional. Only had for a few days and already getting asked where it was obtained. Great product. Only problem is that large books do not fit very well.

      Comments about BOOK CHAIR:

      This is the best little gadget to hit the market for bookreaders I have seen anywhere. There are many designs of book stands/holders out there, but none compare to this one. Such a simple idea, but so very functional. It is great for hands free reading or studying. Perfect for use beside your computer.

                I already owned one of these for several years and had not been able to find a spare until now. In the past I've tried cheap to expensive book holders and this one is the best. I like to read in bed and I can prop the book at the right angle and the "arms" keep the pages open at the right spot. The little arms that hold the pages loosen with use but they're easy to tighten and don't wear out. It folds flat so it's easy to throw in a travel bag. It's perfect!

                  Comments about BOOK CHAIR:

                  This is a refined design of the previous "book chair" that is even more durable and yet it folds so that you can carry it with books. I like to set one next to the computer so that my notes are on the same plane as the laptop screen. I also use it in the kitchen to prominently display messages saying "Gone to the store" or "Be back around 5." I plan to use my extra book chair near the door in our summer cottage to welcome guests with a "Welcome Friends" announcement. A great product!

                      I love this chair ! I havent read any books in a long time due to carpal tunnel. Holding books had become extremely painful. I bought this chair about 3 weeks ago and I have read two entire books in that time. I love this chair enough that I went back and bought out the store. I gave them as gifts to friends. I hope they enjoy this chair as much as I do !
