Product Review: Book Buddy


Recently I was asked to do a product review for the Book Buddy lap desk. Be sure to check out the Book Buddy website-they're having a sale on Book Buddy's right now!
The idea for the Book Buddy is that it's a desk that offers hands free reading. I loved this idea because I am always reading, but at work I get annoyed because I never can seem to eat lunch and hold a book and my book doesn't lay flat. The Book Buddy fixes this problem-your book is secured into the ribbons and lays flat and stays put so your hands are freed up!
The Book Buddy is soft and comfortable, so it's great to lay on your lap too. This has made many recent car rides back and forth to my parents house planning wedding stuff more enjoyable because I can lay the Book Buddy on my lap and read a book-I love it!
The other thing I adore about the Book Buddy is that it transforms into a laptop desk. Since I'm doing online school, I'm always using the computer. The Book Buddy comes with an acrylic desktop that tucks into the ribbons and holds a laptop up-plus it keeps your legs from heating up from the laptop and makes it much easier to type! This has also been a HUGE benefit when I'm working on school work in the car, again on those extended car trips.
I would recommend the Book Buddy to all readers and I think it would make a great gift. I read a review on the Book Buddy site from a customer who loves the Book Buddy because her arthritis is bad and she can't hold a book for an extended period of time. That made me think that maybe the Book Buddy should me my next present to Grandma!
Overall, I would give the Book Buddy a 4/5 Stars-my only complaint is that it's a little big, so it takes up a large space when I use it reading and eating. But other than that I really enjoy it (and have caught my husband using it as a laptop desk on more than one occasion!)
