This is one of those products where a gadget writer has to stop and carefully look for an April Fool’s Day tag since you’re pretty sure it can’t be for real. But since SkyMall isn’t known for April 1 tomfoolery the Levo Book Holder has to be legit. It’s basically a large movable arm that’s designed to hold any book up to 5lb in weight completely upside down allowing you to enjoy hands free reading while sitting, reclining or even laying down.
The arm is connected to a wheeled base that can be rolled from room to room and special clips ensure the book doesn’t fall into your lap. It also uses special spring action page holders to keep the book open while still allowing you to turn the pages. It looks easy enough to use but I’m a pretty fast reader and having to open and close the page holders every time I turn the page would get old really quick.
The Levo Book Holder is available from SkyMall for $165.95 but if holding large or heavy books is a serious problem for you why not just wait for the paperback or go with audiobooks instead?
