Table stand for kindle

Hi,
I am a newbie to this forum, I got my Kindle3 just recently, and I am looking for a simple tabletop Kindle stand, so that I can read hands free.
I apologise if this has already been covered elsewhere on the forum, I have had a brief look.
I Have found a few on the Internet, there is one particularly simple one which takes my fancy on ebay, I wonder if anybody has had any experience of it?

Any advise appreciated..

No experience with the one you listed, but I own this one & LOVE it (be sure to check out the video review).

Another option is a case with a built in stand like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ef=oss_product
I really prefer this option because it's just so convenient. Hope that helps!

Hi and welcome to mobileread

For my Kindle 2 I used to have a Tuff Luv flip cover which had a stand built in which was awesome - I used to prop the Kindle up by my PC so I could read and blog etc.

As I now use the lighted cover (not swapping that!) I use a simple plastic book stand which just happens to fit well when I need to prop the Kindle up - normally while in the Kitchen.

Anyway there are a few options for you.

What do you think about this one? Cost almost next to nothing.

You can probably hit a cooking store and find something to hold up a cook book like the items pictured. Similarly, a framing shop or craft store will have display brackets that will be similar. I like that six "gooseneck" thingie but pricey.

I would think making a low key cardboard stand would be pretty easy as well. Maybe just upscale something like this iphone stand?

I bought this one. It is very sturdy, and folds up so you can carry it with you.

I also use Tuff Luv cover, three positions (standing upright). It's absolutely excellent, perfect when eating and then tilt it up when you lean back to drink your coffee
