Bookrest Pillow

Does anyone have a "Hog Wild Peeramid Bookrest" pillow? (http://www.amazon.com/Hog-Wild-Peera.../dp/B001KYU4BU).

It's basically a rectangular lap pillow with a pyramid-shaped projection in the center.
You rest your tablet (or book) on the pyramid and the bottom rests in a slot between the pyramid and a raised edge.
Looking at a picture is much easier than explaining it!

I was wondering how well this works with a tablet for reading in bed.

Thanks,
Eric

A while ago I was looking for one of those but I could only find an online UK store with really bad reviews who was willing to send them to the Netherlands. I got myself a Bookseat which I really love. In the backpocket I got a dual LED reading light from Mighty Bright for reading at night.

I have one of those.... I don't love it, but I know people who do. If you're sitting up, it's fine. If you're laying down, it's probably not going to be at a good angle for you.

I use a smallish microbead pillow that I can scrunch up to adapt to whatever angle I am laying in; side, back, semi propped up, it also works as a cat rest ;o)

Wouldn't a larger pillow make more room to put Barbie next to your Ken doll?

That looks interesting and I found the US distributor but I didn't see a price?

I paid around €30 for it.
Amazon has them too, for $29.95. It's filled with microbeads so you can also change the angle somewhat.

Thanks for the link. I exchanged 4 or 5 e-mails with Alice, the maker of the E-Pillow.
She's very personable and helpful, helped me decide on the size and fabric,
and is open to pretty much any customization request.

My E-Pillow is on order and should be ready in about a week (or less).

Glad it worked out for you. I just had a similar experience. You can tell her just what sort of device(s) you have, and she will determine what will work best for you. I have one on the way.
