Description
A book holder with two folding legs and two clips that hold the book in an open position (see photo 1). The book holder can be attached to the upper or lower edge of the book (see photos 1 and 2). In order to easily turn the pages, about 15 to 20 pages can be selected in advance (see photo 4) and inserted into a slot in the clip (see photos 5 and 3).
It’s easy to remove them one at a time and then place them in the slot of the other clip.
The BookGem book holder works well both when sitting up and when lying in bed.

Users comments
As it became increasingly difficult for the user to hold a book and keep it open, mainly lying in bed, she began to read less and less, until an acquaintance gave her the BookGem. And to her surprise, it really works.
