My go-to gift
I have given this to several friends who had either temporary or long term shoulder issues. It was very happily received, and I am pleased that I gave it.

I use it more than I thought I would
I originally bought the Thai Pad to hold my reading material to give my arthritic hands a break. Then, I realized I can use it to hold my edited manuscript pages while I make the changes on the computer. It's easier than the bamboo clipboard style paper holder I bought from Levenger a while back. The Thai Pad has no stiff clip that's hard to open and close when I need to change pages. Instead, I just move the page away and start on the next one underneath it. It's also not as high as the clipboard, so I can put it right in front of the screen and see what I'm during just fine. I also appreciate that a portion of the purchase price goes to the people who make them.

This is such an elegantly simple product, and one I use every day to support books or an iPad mini. It is so light-weight that it is comfortable to hold whether I'm sitting or curled up in a chair or reclining in bed. I've owned one for several years and, because I'm so happy with it, I've given several as gifts.

works but doesn't last
Design of Thai Pad is excellent for holding a book on your lap at a useful reading angle. However, the silk cover fabric soon splits and tears under use, particularly with heavy art or photo books. Have had to improvise a new cover using tee-shirts -- ugly. Poor durability makes the price high.

Functionality of this product is great - so much so that I bought two. I use them everyday. Problem is that the fabric these are covered with is so cheap that both have holes worn through where the edge of my tablet (rounded and smooth, I might add) has worn holes in them. It would be one thing if the edge of my tablet was sharp but it's as smooth as glass and has still made the fabric threadbare. For this price, these should last a lot longer since they just sit there behind my tablet. With the stuffing now coming out of both, they will be going into the trash soon. Pity - I liked the product but I won't buy another.

Lost Without It!
I cannot do without it. I use it on daily basis.

a new favorite
I have been wanting this product and hesitated because iI kept thinking that it really can't be as useful as claimed. Wrong! It is all it claims to be and more. Want to buy a couple more for gifts but will wait for a special offer because they are a bit high in price . Levenger.has many good offers. I enjoy visiting their site.

The colors on the blue Thai Pad are beautiful and the quality is very nice. We are using this with a Google Nexus, IPOD touch and our Microsoft Surface2. It is not very comfortable to use when the keyboard is attached to the Surface2, but once you have your reading material on screen we can remove the keyboard and this provides a very comfortable reading angle, more comfortable when you're able to prop up your feet and put on your lap. Our kids use it lying on the floor with it to watch movies or videos and they love the viewing angle for that too.

Great for my Nook Color
My husband gave me this reading pillow for Christmas. I have been using my Nook Color more these days for reading books, and the pillow works beautifully to prop it up in my lap or on a table. (The Nook does get heavy after holding it awhile). It's just what I wanted.

Just what I was looking for !
Terrific purchase. Makes using my I Pad with keyboard so much easier. I purchased one for my son who mentioned that he always uses a pillow when he reads or uses his I Pad. I am sure this will be much better than his pillow !!!
I would love to see this product in neutral colors that would fit in with any decor. As always, I am thrilled with my Levenger purchase.
