Kindle 3 Stand, cheap and portable

Hi All,
This is my first post; thanks for having a great forum.

Anyway, I came up with a ridiculously cheap and portable way to make a Kindle 3 stand. I made a post at Instructables here with pictures (also attached), but the gist is that you clip a small binder clip to the lower part of your Kindle 3 and place a chopstick through the clip handles. I put a business card between the clip and the Kindle to keep the clip from scratching the plastic.

That thing is more smartly designed than 94% of all Kindle accessories. Excellent work, sir.

Very clever. That beats my $4 craft-store wire easel hands down.

Admiringly,

Very nice! And if you want to dress it up a bit, or personalize it, you can use a different colour binder clip and one of those fancy chopsticks:





Thank you very much for the good idea, nogre.

I love it! I've just spent way too much time looking online for a stand, but haven't found one that I liked. I have a cover, so I'd put the clip on the cover instead, and it looks like I could adjust the angle by moving it higher or lower on the cover.
