Perhaps things are different in the part of the US you are in, but in Chicago there is nothing wrong with asking for a bread roll.
Likewise for Canada.

Bread was a rock band from Los Angeles, California. They placed 13 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1970 and 1977 and were a prime example of what later was labeled soft rock. - oops, wrong definition.

Bread is a staple food prepared by cooking a dough of flour and water and often additional ingredients. - no mention of shape or size

A bread roll is a piece of bread, usually small and round and is commonly considered a side dish. Bread rolls are often used in the same way as sandwiches are—cut transversely, with fillings placed between the two halves. - Aha! Size and shape and use.

Also, bread roll allows for disambiguation. Otherwise you may be asking for:

a Cabbage roll
a sausage roll
an Egg roll
a Spring roll
a Meat roll
a roll in the hay

Depending in the place and situation, asking for a roll may get you something entirely different (including a possible slap in the face).

I usually just prop my Kindle up against the napkin holder. Or, if I'm eating in the kitchen for whatever reason, I'll stand it up on the bread box.

Would the 'bread box' contain rolls of any kind?

I don't have an "eating table". I eat from a tray in my reading chair.

Of course, if there is room for them. If not, they maybe stored in the frig, or a handy drawer.

I have a Post-It tape flag dispenser on my desk at work that has a bit of a slant on the top -- I use that to prop up my reader while I'm eating lunch.

When I'm at home, I either use my napkin holder or I take one of my cloth placemats, roll it up, and set my reader on that. I don't need the book propped up very much -- just enough so that the glare from the light is gone.

I've been known to watch tv while I read and eat, all at the same time . Sprawled out on the living room floor, who needs such things as tables and chairs?

I don't require a lot of elevation, but flat isn't as comfortable as some elavation. I usually have a rubberized thumb drive in my pocket, and it's big enough to lift one end slightly. And it doesn't slip around, which has been a problem with some of my other ad hoc solutions.

It doesn't apply to sharing the table with total strangersn who just happen to be there, but I will not read at the table when out with people I know. I don't get out with friends enough to ignore them when I do it.

LOL

That'e exactly what I have been doing.
At the thai restaurant across my office they asked me to stop, because it bends the corners of the packets out of shape. Well, I guess that's more because of my iPad, which is heaving than my Kindle. They actually remove them from my table when I sit down.

But, as soon as they take the order, I lean to the next table and grab one. I get some hateful looks from the old lady that owns the place, but I stare at the screen and pretend not to notice.

The ultra-silly looking Book Beanies work great. I had one, but our dog Crystal ate it. If you want one, you can order direct from the site or from Amazon.

Here's a page showing all of their 11 styles.
