Cute idea

FY4H9B6HKVLA3BN.LARGEWhoever said that reading books is relaxing didn’t realize how much effort it takes to hold your book open.  When I really get into a book, I won’t put it down for hours in a row, and holding the pages open for that long gets tiring for my fingers!

A book enthusiast from Madrid was getting tired of the strain, and came up with a crafty solution!  She made a ring that goes around your thumb, and supports the pages on either side while you read.

What do you think?  Is this something you’d try?  Would you ever consider using a tablet to reduce the finger-strain?
