I am just getting started at Photo Reading but was getting very discouraged because I was having trouble holding the book,turning the pages and being comfortable at the same time.
For a $15 investment I bought a product at Staples/Business Depot called a "book lift", brand name "Fellows". It is just a simple plastic thing something like a picture frame that holds the book, and has an adjustable angle setting so you can sit it in a half dozen different positions.
Now I can sit in my LazyBoy Chair, with a dinner tray on my lap with my book on my "booklift" and read much easier.
I have not had any real breakthrought, but I plan on mastering this process and anything that can make it easier and more proficent is a bonus. I'm on my second pass through of my course materials, and I know it will all come together for me if I just keep working the system.
