I spend a lot of my time having to lie down (I aim for 15 mins/hour, which is about four hours a day at least) but find myself putting it off and resting less than I need because it's so boring! I'd like to be able to read a book while lying flat in bed with my head on the pillow and the book directly above my head. I've tried lying on my side and holding the book in my hand but it's not possible to do it and be fully relaxed; plus I wear glasses and they get squashed sideways so I can't see properly. I really do need to be flat on my back. I've found this bookstand by Levo, which stands on the floor and has an arm and rotable book-holding bit that would be great. It's very expensive, though: US$190 on that site and 142 at the cheapest in the UK here (note that that's the price when you declare that as a disabled person you're VAT exempt for it, UK people!). I'm loath to spend such a lot of money and to have something so clunky in my small bedroom. Has anyone seen something that does the same job but cheaper? Or can anyone suggest how to cobble something together out of cheap stuff to make something that does the same job? I don't have a headboard on my bed or anything to clamp something to (but other people might so don't let that stop you putting ideas forward for everybody!).
