I'm looking for a plan for a book holder or book stand.
The kind that you sit on a table and it will hold a book at a nice angle so you can read the book comfortably while your seated.
It would be a major plus if it also can hold the page open for you.
I did some searching already but couldn't find anything so far, hopefully someone here knows where I can find one or has the plan themselves.

Hi Bobj,
I'm looking for one that keeps the book almost vertical.

Bob,
Thanks for those links. I found about a half a dozen plans that might work. Now I just have to compare them and see which will work best, plus see which parts of each can I steal for my own design.

Black and Deckers kitchen accessories book has one called cookbook easel. It uses a plastic insert to hold the page open. Very simple to make.
