Book holder with light for reading in bed

This book holder with light by ZZWS Store is an inexpensive lightweight solution. The adjustable bookstand works best on a hard bed table. But you can place it on a pillow, on your lap, or on your belly as well. It helps angle the book at a better angle which is more relaxing for your neck. The side page holders hold the book open so you can read in bed, handsfree.

The page holders at the side hide the text behind and it can be inconvenient for you to adjust them again and again. Other book holders have a minimal page holder that does not block text.

And the book light the comes with it is not the best clip-on book light either.
