Great Reading Aid
The Nantucket Lapreader is beautifully made and a pleasure to use. It is comfortable on my lap and holds my book in the perfect position.

The Nantucket line is one of my favorites!
I have purchased one Nantucket product after another because they function well and are attractive. I do not find the lap reader to be hard on my legs as other reviewers have stated. I wouldn't change a thing and in fact, have to keep moving it back to my study when it is borrowed by other family members. Great purchase. Also own the other Nantucket pillow-bottom lap reader which I use for my iPad, laptop or letter writing in front of the TV.

Lap desk perfect!
Bought this as an inclined writing surface for my junior planner at work. Ordering a second for the house. It is perfect in size and comfort. Love it!!

Designed for a laptop...
This is a beautiiful item and seems well made (early complaints about the computer sliding under the curve have been resolved by the inclusion of a blue roll cushion).
One concern is stability. At one point the laptop slid off and fell on the floor (the laptop does still work, fortunately). A large woodworker's rubber band now holds the laptop to the desk (between the cushion and the desk) and prevents it from sliding around. It works well, but does not go very will with the design!
Not useful for reading because of the angle. Flip legs in the left and right back would be helpful, or perhaps a hinge along the back of the desk.

I was replacing a long-owned laptop desk and thought this looked good in the catalogue. The quality is disappointing for the price. My previous one had a soft cushion, and this one is very hard. The wood at the front end cuts into my leg. My laptop computer hangs over the side edges. It seems I need something with a combination of the mini, the larger uncushioned board, and this one. Wish I could design my own!

NOT for reading!
This item may be fine for computer use -- which is what most reviews cover -- but is not good for reading. Especially for long, heavy hardback books -- the kind you need a lap desk for -- this product is totally insufficient. The book lies almost flat in your lap, not tilted up to be read. When I tried to return it I find I must pay about 25% of the purchase price for return shipping. This is the only company I deal with that does not provide some sort of low cost return label. This is the last time I will buy from Levenger.

This solved my problem for a study, comfortable laptop stand. I enjoy doing art projects on my laptop and this was just what I needed. So handy to have a place that holds my various stylus, too.

Needed to get my laptop elevated on both my desk and lap. This does the trick. Nicely stable, good looking, easily portable. I got it during the December sale so I was happy with the price. No complaints here.

Versatile and attractive
I've been contemplating this purchase for a long time and I'm glad I finally took the plunge! I love the look of the bamboo, the way the desk sits firmly on my lap or the table, the storage in the back (I've stopped losing my pens!), and the ability to adjust the laptop angle with the small roll pillow. My only improvements would be to offer some different colors and to make the back slot wide enough to hold my TV remote....
