    Great Product

    This is a great little product. Well worth the very inexpensive price. The product comes with two differently sized book holders that work for most small to medium sized paperbacks. Great for anyone who likes to take a book with them on their lunch break! One of the best features is that the holders are so small you can use them as a book mark when not reading the book. This way they don't take up any additional room in your bag. The only drawback is that the product won't work with my larger sized books.

    Works, but Little thought

    Have you ever wondered if you were paying more for the wrapping than the product? It is almost certain in this case. Product is 1/2 oz. plastic the wrapping is 1-1/2 oz., plus a nice die-cut label. The "big Gimble" will barely hold a 5 inch wide of 750 pages. Most paperbacks that I see today are 5-1/2 or larger and then you are limited to 300 pages. The basic idea would be great for references or when you need to read and type at the same time. Unfortunately, they are really intended for small saddle-stitched material.

    A Reading Revolution - I love it!

    What a wonderful device it¿s so clever why has no one thought of it before. It¿s called the Gimble, It¿s incredibly simple to use, holding the book open at a natural angle that doesn't damage your book, while you're reading, but still allowing you to turn the pages easily. It's changed my life I love it!

    Great product!

    I love this product! My only co,mplaint is that the small fits a standard papeback and the large fits a trade size paperback - neither works on hard back books - and I want a gimble that will work for larger books!

    Easy to use. Very comfortable

    Good product

    I had something similar back in the early 09's that I loved. I've been looking for another book holder for a long time. This is very nice, lightweight and portable. It is just a little difficult to turn the pages, but when you do, it really holds them back. I really do like this product, and will purchse them for gifts. They are not expensive, and I know my family of book lovers will appreciate them. I also like the two sizes.

    This is good for reading when your hands are full. The only problem I saw was that the directions were not to explicit. There are two book holders and one is for a small book and the other for a large book. the directions did not specifiy and

    I tried putting them together.

    A Brilliant Invention

    The simple ideas are always the best, it's so light weight you hardly notice it but now I would be without my Gimble especially on holiday, a friend recommended it to me and now I recommend it to my friends. A rare thing nowadays a good product at a good price that really works.

    Everyone who sees it wants one!

    I use this to hold my paperback to read over lunch or at the gym. I must have had a hundred people ask me where I got it. Every reader who sees me using it wants their own.

    Seems like a great idea, but.....

    Ordered online. When it arrived the larger one was broken and the smaller one must fit only mass market paperbacks, because it was too small to use on any books I have.
