It’s the holiday season, so I couldn’t resist browsing the internet to see what holiday gifts are out there for readers. Here are ten gifts that I thought were fun.
This is much nicer than the cobbled together one I've been using made from an empty box of tissues, a document holder, and a ruler.
First, I put the document holder on top of the tissue box, so that I'm not lowering my head and therefore straining my neck when I read. Why a document stand? Because of the raised edge along the front. Skinny books fit inside so that the edge keeps the pages spread. My iPad also fits nicely into this gap.
Second, for thicker paperbacks and hardbacks, I put a ruler across the edge so I can balance the book on it.
Finally, I prop the book up on it, like this. (Yes, those are sticky notes behind the book. I have sticky notes EVERYWHERE!)
10. T-shirt with Slogan: Dinosaurs Didn't Read. Now They're Extinct.
This one made me laugh out loud. What types of books do you think the dinosaurs would have enjoyed?
