Mini Nantucket Lap Desk
This was a gift, and having found its description on line, I think the product matches Levenger's take on it. It's helpful in unexpected ways--a magazine "desk" firm enough to use as a writing platform--but it could be so much better if the cushion were redesigned: namely by offering a two-piece cushion, each piece the original width and length, but each slanted at different degrees so they could be combined (with attached velcro strips) in different ways to create 1. A 2-ply flat cushion; 2. A 2-ply cushion with twice the original slant; 3) A 2-ply cushion at 1 of 2 possible intermediate slants 4) or a 1-ply cushion with a slight or greater slant (assuming the two pieces were created with different degrees of slant). I'd like to see this approach used with all possible lap desks to make them more user-configurable .

I use this for a large study bible and it works fine it doesn't scratch the leather on either side of my expensive recliner because of it being somewhat smaller than most readers plus the cleat is large and supports larger books.

Small, but useful
I have purchased the larger lapreaders from Levenger, but find myself using this one more because it is so portable. Lightweight -- and yes it is very small, but useful for propping up a book or magazine when reading in bed or in a chair. Too small and lightweight for my MacBook Air however. This is my first lap desk with the little ledge across the bottom -- a nice feature. I think I may find a piece of trim to glue on to my larger lapreader. I could see taking this on a plane trip.

Small but handy
Just the right size for standard iPad. My small laptop fits perfectly.

Much smaller than I had visualized. I had wanted something for writing as well as reading; this is barely big enough to do a crossword puzzle on. If it hadn't been on sale, and if it wouldn't have cost so much to return, I would probably have exchanged for the larger size. I decided to keep it, though, as a slight improvement over searching for a magazine to steady a book or paper on.

Good but not great
The size is great. I like that it is lightweight. But I tend to use it at an angle anything over about 20 degrees the iPad slips off. It is useful when I'm writing but not so much for reading. It needs more of a lip.

My two sons like using it so much I may have to buy another one. Well made and functional. Another great Levenger product.
