Does anyone use bookholders they can recommend? I am seeing a couple different types, but no real say on what's better. I want something I can use on a treadmill and stationary bike that will be functional enough to not give me hassle about keeping the book open while also allowing me to easily turn the pages.
Thanks in advance!
Long Way Down by Nick Hornby.
Martin (an ex-TV host who has lost his wife and children and has just gotten out of prison), Maureen (who is worn-out from taking care of her son who has serious brain damage), Jess (a teenage girl with mental problems and a lopsided view of the world), and JJ (who has loss his girl and his band meet on the roof of Topper's House in London with the intention of ending their lives. Instead they become friends and help each other to get their lives back in some unexpected ways. The four voices are distinctive but fit well with each other. This is a book about love, loss, life, pain, and friendship. At moments it is heartbreaking and at other times it is uplifting. I almost passed on this book because of the subject matter but I like Nick Hornby. I'm glad I gave this funny and touching book a go. I give it 4 3/4 out of 5.
I am currently reading Cane River which is a fictional account of a generation of women during the times of slavery and in the early 1900's. I will admit that I have not read a lot of books about African Americans during slavery and pre-civil rights but the ones that I have read have been wonderful. Can you all recommend me some more books? I really am enjoying this book and I absolutely love There Eyes Were Watching God and The Help. Thank you! :)
I forgot to mention, the books can be fiction or nonfiction. :)
