Great for academia,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wooden Reading Rest - Adjustable Cookbook Holder (Kitchen & Home)
After reading some of the reviews I almost didn't purchase this as I was concerned that my wooden rest would also be broken. However it came in perfect condition within a plastic cover.
I'm only sad that I hadn't found this sooner, because as an English Literature student I was spending hours bending over my book and maintaining a bad posture for my back and neck. Now that I have this I can sit up straight and read more comfortably. I prop it up with a couple of books underneath to make it eye level when reading which helps. It is also brilliant for when you want to type up notes from the book onto the computer, as the rest holds the book open for you and you don't have to open and close the book repeatedly or damage the spine by forcing the book flat onto the table.
It truely does look better than in the photo and it's made with a beautiful, smooth wood. I think for what it is, the price is completely reasonable as it is adjustable, sturdy, well made and you can make it flat and carry it around with you (I take it with me in my bag to the library). It's also very light. I would easily recommend this and may even buy it as a gift in the future.
