Hand Holding ;)

In a recent discussion, people described how they held their jetBooks. I couldn't quite figure some of them out. Here are the three positions I use.

1718 is the most common.
1713 is good for a break.
1717 is for when I'm feeling dexterous.

Regards,

In my case, in my left hand, somewhat like the first pic.

Thumb on page turn button, but little finger is not tipped up like that, and the jetbook is rotated right somewhat. Pics tommorow, good topic!

I had a crush on my PRS 505 when I got it back in June, Jack ... but I fell head over heels in love with it when I bought a its black soft leather cover a month or so later. There's a little pop-stud-held loop on the back, which looks like it might be meant to wear on a belt -- seems useless; but I very soon found that I can hold the reader now in an open left hand, simply by slipping my index finger or first and second fingers together through that loop.

My left thumb is free to turn pages using the wheel, and my right hand is absolutely fancy free to hold my glass of crusted port, support a fine Havana cigar, pinch the bottoms of bikini-clad models as they pass my chair, or click my fingers for the head waiter at the Cafe de Paris in Monte Carlo.

Seriously, it's the most comfortable reading I've experienced since I learned my ABC nearly six decades ago. A little bonus is that the cover (I think it cost about thirty bucks and threatens to last at least for my life time) is that it instantly converts the reader into something that looks, feels and even smells like the highest quality hardback you could imagine.

Cheers. Neil

Ah, but Neil, if you had a jetBook, with more hand positions, you could reach the models on BOTH sides of your chaise without strain.

Ereaders are superior to other written media, since they allow simultaneous manipulation of literature and port.

Jack I apologize sir, I recently thought of this thread while I was reading, and looked down to see exactly how I did it. First pic nails me to a tee, although I do sometimes rest the bottom right corner of my jetbook on my leg to rest my little finger.

Now there's a quote worth stealing, Jack. Karma to you. Bottoms up. Neil
