If you’ve ever tried to read and eat at the same time, it can be an eye-opening experience. The two forms of enjoyment just don’t go together. They are no peas and carrots, as Mr. Gump would say. BookGem holds your book open for you, keeping it at a readable angle while you enjoy your BBQ ribs.
One thing that BookGem doesn’t do is wash your hands for you. So even if you go through all of the trouble to set up your book for meal reading, even sloppy hands will make your book stained and sticky. Remember to grab a napkin and you should be fine. Get your own for $15. — Andrew Dobrow
