Most stands for electronic devices are built to be used with only one device. The BookGem can hold a multitude of devices – an iPad or other tablet, a Kindle or Kindle DX, Sony readers, nook, Kobo reader – even a paper book. The BookGem is made in the USA of ABS plastic. Folded up, it’s small enough to fit into a man’s shirt pocket. Clip it to the bottom of the book or device to hold it at a higher angle. Clip it to the top to hold the book or device at a lower angle. The “page grippers” have rubber tips to grip your device firmly without damage to the finish. You can use the BookGem on a desktop, airplane tray, in your bed, or with a pillow for comfortable reading while you sit in an easy chair. You can even charge devices in the BookGem stand. The BookGem is $14.95, and can be ordered directly from the BookGem website or from Amazon.com.
