I am able to leave my NOOK Tablet and my NOOK Color inside their individual covers and I can display each Nook (cover open or closed), PORTRAIT or LANDSCAPE, in their own Bookhug. I also used Bookhugs to store my covered NOOK 1st Edition (3G+Wi-Fi) and Simple Touch when they weren’t in use. The Bookhug is stable. Although it doesn’t fold up, it’s small and light enough to take on trips. It contributes to neatness and prevents me from accidently setting down other things on top of my NOOKs. In my opinion, this product provides a better display stand solution than any other product available in the entire NOOK accessory line (as of 01/09/2012). I’m a happy Nookie with Bookhugs.

If I only read the middle of my textbooks, which nobody does, this product would be great. But I read the front and back of my textbooks and the bookhug won't hold the books. The reason why the book doesn't work, after carfeul observation is that when you read the front or back of the book, both sides of the book are not even and the bookhug doesn't work because it doesn't adjust to this fact.

I bought the bookhug to help me with holding text books at an angle easy for reading while working on the computer. It is great! It easily supports both paperback and hardback text of all heights and thicknesses up to 2 inches. I sort out the pages I need and put the rest of the pages under the two tabs provided to support the book and there is no interference in turning the pages. I have not had a problem with tipping over due to weight or height. I am very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend it to others.

I have a disability, which limits the use of my left arm. My books are one thing that I have a difficult time holding, so I went looking for a book holder to solve the problem. On one of my many trips to B & N I looked specifically for this item and found the Bookhug Holder, which has proved to be more than satisfactory. It is heavy enough to maintain balance and remain upright, yet not too heavy for anyone. I do find a flat surface the best place to use it and I have a lap top desk that works just great. The holder requires placing the book in the holder and each side has a lip at the bottom, which holds the pages in place, so I just turn the pages with my right arm and never have to use my left arm. What an answer to the simple reading of a book, which had become very difficult without suffering severe pain in a matter of minutes. I highly recommend this product and for the price, I believe it was around $14.95. Well worth every penny.

I like the Book Hug so much that, having lost one, I hurried out to replace it with the exact same model of bookholder. If you like to read while eating, as I do, then this is a great tool. It provides a secure resting place even for heavy books, propping your reading material up to an excellent angle. If I have any quibble at all with the Book Hug (beside it's name), it is that it's not really designed to be carried around; while it is light, it is also awkward and inflexible. These are not qualities that keep it from being a very useful thing to have.

Some books are large enough and thin enough for this stand to be adequate. It does not work well with standard size paperbacks or thicker hardcover books.

I don't really understand the problem others are claiming to have with large books-- I've used the Bookhug on the Norton Anthology of American Lit without a problem, nor have I had a problem with other large books. I think what they may be doing is trying to fit ALL of the pages under the bottom flanges-- but that would only work with short books. If you put enough pages under each flange to hold the book, you should be able to leave it open without a problem. Believe it or not. I am now buying one for my mother, whose arthritis makes it difficult for her to hold a book.

I was looking for a bookholder and I came across the bookhug. After reading the reviews, most people gave it 5 stars and one guy said it was garbage. I bought the bookhug and it didn't hold most of my books. It worked for my smaller novels, but other then that I wish I never bought it.I should have listened to the guy who said it was garbage.

I bought this bookholder so I can use it for when I study, but I ended up not using it at all because it's just more comfortable when I don't use it. Most of the time this bookholder held my book up in a awkward position and I still needed to use my hands to hold the pages down. When I tried using it for my soft cover books it never held up the book effectively, the product is not designed to support soft cover books and mid to large size books. It did hold up some of my novels, and smaller books. I guess it works for smaller books, the types of books this thing can hold is very limited, not like it claims.

I like this product although I thought it was a bit over-priced. I like to use it for my smaller, and thiner books. Bookhug claims it can hold almost any size book which is true, but it can not effectively hold most books (I feel the claims made by the bookhug are misleading) . When I read the middle of a book, both side are even and thus the bookhug can hold the book effectively. The bookhug didn't really work well when I read near the front or back of the book because both sides of the book are not even. When I tried using it for my soft cover books the bookhug really didn't work (book has the shape of the golden arches) . Overall, I like using the bookhug for my small, thin books (hardcover and softcover).

I have owned my Bookhug for many months. I use it to read a paperback while I'm eating breakfast. If a book's binding is too tight, you can place a clip on the page and the metal pieces in the front. I've successfully used many different sizes of books in it. A variety of things can be propped up with the Bookhug including a clip board with papers I'm copying onto my computer, birthday cards for display, or mail-to-go. I recommend this product.

Just bought this and already LOVE IT!! I am a college student and one of the most frustrating things is having to crane my neck in order to read my textbook while I'm studying. This book holder is just what I have been looking for to hold up my textbooks. It works really well for small to medium thickness textbooks. I'm not sure if it would work very well for very thick textbooks. I'm so glad I was able to find this!

Useful. Cheap. Sturdy. My textbooks are really heavy so at first I thought this product would not work, but I was wrong. Its perfect! I went to the store and tested out all the other products. I really like this one because it doesn't take as much space compared to the other book holders. Room space is important since I live in the dorm.

The Hug is quite satisfactory. We use it to hold a somewhat large, decorated volume of Psalms and the device holds the book open to it can be read easily, and is itself not in the way of reading. I recommend it

If I only read the middle of my books I would use this bookholder all the time, but that is not the case. When I tried reading the front and back of my books this bookholder it didn't effectively hold my book.

This is a great product. It has helped me in many things, along with studying for school to reading at night. I have also used it just to hold papers that I have had to copy. It looks nice on a desk and the box is easy to put away when not being used. All for all, this is the best book holder I have seen and/or used. Its worth paying for, small price, great investment.

I adore Bookhug - I've tried other products like it and none compare to the slick little design, quality, price and functionality. It can hold everything from recipe books, to the book I'm reading while I dry my hair (one of my favourite uses for Bookhug), to lovely books that I just want to display. Highly recommended.

I don't know how I lived life to the full before I was given a bookhug- It's made the little things in life that were before hand so difficult so easy! I wouldn't say it was garbage at all as the last reviewer claimed the holder is well made and very neat making it easy to pack away into a cupboard, and pages are far easier to turn than the average bookholder. I've found it especially good for standing craft like painting which requires one to look down upon a page and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys following complicated designs where the page needs to be held open clearly without any covering, and although it doesn't hold all books, a small MDF board slotted underneath does a great job to help hold it.
