Colour Name: Grey
I ordered the book chair in order to assist me in studying for my upcoming university exams. What arrived was exactly what I expected - simply a 'chair' to hold my books, in the fold up style of a beach desk chair.

Pro's
1. Allows me to hold my books open as I study. As I write this it is holding open a fairly hefty law textbook of almost 1300 pages.
2. The 'arms' that hold the book open are fairly small and unobtrusive.
3. Page turning is easy.
4. Springs on the arms allow you to pull them out further to accomodate larger books.
5. Lightweight and easy to store.

Con's
1. I entertain certain doubts about the quality: although, overall, it is fairly solid, the 'arms' are quite flimsy and I can foresee them snapping fairly easy. Though this is purely hypothetical - they are working perfectly fine just now.
2. With smaller books (for example a thinner textbook I own, at just over 300 pages)do not sit in quite as easily and have more of a tendency to move about as they attempt to close themselves. Definitely would be too large for novels - would need to get the smaller chair for that.
3. At the very end, or the very start, of books, the 'arms' struggle to hold the small number of pages at one side whilst struggling to accomodate the large number at the other side.

Overall I give it 4/5: it does what it is needed, and only due to the doubts over the strength of the 'arms' does it miss out on 5/5.
Definitely up to the job of a study aid, and is definitely preferrable to struggling to hold my book open on my lap / on the little bit of table in front of my laptop as I type notes!

I've several products that aim to do what this product does. Aside from a wooden one, which cost a lot more, this is by far and away the best. It works very well. It's fit for purpose, light, attractive.
I daresay the wooden one will last longer, but this one is brilliant so far. Well worth the money!

If you are worried that the plastic version just won't be as durable as the wooden version, you are probably right. I ordered the plastic becuase there seems to be some size confusion - I couldn't find a "large" in the wood versions so sent for this one. Having checked the dimensions of the wooden "standard" it's listed as being bigger than the plastic "large". Mine was already broken when it arrived, so it's just an instant turnaround and return. Looking at the construction in plastic, particularly the transparent sheet, I didn't feel it was worth exchanging for another plastic one and will be getting the wooden one.
