Here's a great idea for folks who have to hold a book and use a light or magnifier at the same time.
Simply put the Thumbthing onto your thumb and place into the spine of the book. The two wings will hold the pages open more easily, making reading more comfortable.
It allows you to read with one hand only.
It prevents the spine of the book from being broken.
When finished reading place the Thumbthing into the top of the book so it doesn't get lost.
Thumbthings come in 4 sizes (small, medium, large and extra-large) for different-sized thumbs and many bright colours.
