Reading while on the toilet

Using a wastebasket and a paper clip the user can read while on the toilet without having to hold the book - suitable for persons with poor trunk balance

Description
When the user reads while on the toilet he places the book or newspaper on a wastebasket with lid in front of him. He puts a paper clamp on the book and a ruler across the pages to prevent the book from closing. The paper clamp always sits attached to the wastebasket with a hook.
