LEVO book holder review – Why it is the best book stand?

Levo book holder for books and ipad or kindle review

This floor book stand is for every book lover, who wants to read for longer period without hurting his neck, arms, hands, shoulders, or back.

If you want to read in bed, chair, white bathing, studying, or while exercising on treadmill or on your exercise bike, then this book holder is perfect for you.

If you are disabled for any reason like Arthritis, Parkinson, stroke or any other kind, such that you can not properly hold books for reading, then this is a great solution for you. You can easily read without holding books in your hand.

There are two Models; Buy Carefully!

There are two models: Levo book holder, and the latest model with even sturdier construction, called Levo Deluxe G2. (I think it means 2nd Generation)

  • If you only want to read books only, then go with Levo book holder. This is cheaper. And if you want to read on kindle, you can get the tablet extension, later. Below is the link to Levo. 
  • If you want to read books and also want to use it for ereaders and tablets, then buy levo deluxe G2 stand, plus get book holder extension. This is a bit more expensive, but this option is recommended, because you might need to read ebooks in future.

And this one

Note again: Even if you buy only the Levo book holder, you can get the tablet holder extension from Levo. So, do not worry.

By the way, I have written a specific post on kindle and other e-readers holder stand for reading in bed. Check it out if you are into reading e-books.

You do not have to bend down to read

It is one of the best book holders because it allows you to read in the most ergonomic posture possible. You can adjust the height and the angle to any position.

You do not have to bend your neck down. Just elevate the height to your eye level, and adjust the angle of the book holder for the comfortable viewing posture.

Easy lock and hand micro adjustment.

There is a problem with multi-joint book stands that it gets difficult to adjust the book holder to its position. But this Levo book stand tackles that problem with easy lock lever. Once you lock the height, you can do micro adjustment to place it EXACTLY the way you like.

To show you the adjustability of this book stand, I have selected this video from Youtube.

Do not be confused by the tablet holder. The basic stand is the same. You can either put a book holder extension or the tablet holder extension on the pole. (I have discussed this in the beginning of this post) This video is of the Levo floor stand with the tablet holder extension)
