If I spend too long reading, I end up exerting a lot of stress on my neck and shoulders. The Levo bookholder counteracts this stress by allowing you to read in any position without having to hold the book up. The telescoping capability is phenomenal, allowing me to read in every position from standing up to lying down on my back in bed.
Here are some potential downsides: I've only had the bookholder for 3 months, so I don't know if the springs for holding the book open will eventually wear out.
The base is also fairly heavy (maybe 25 pounds) in order to prevent the stand from tipping over. If you have places you want to read where you would have to carry up the book holder, that could be a bit of an issue. Also, it only supports books up to 5 pounds, though I wouldn't imagine that is an issue for most reading.
It works better for books than for magazines, especially when reading upside down. The magazines seem to be a bit too flimsy to stay put well when completely flipped upside down.
Despite these downsides, I highly recommend this bookholder, especially if you like to spend a few hours a day reading. I'm already trying to figure out how to bring it on a plane during vacation.
