This pillow is such a great creation! It is just the right size to put in my lap and hold my book or even use as a head rest sometimes (I know that's not the intended purpose but it works and is a pillow!). I use it to put my notebooks on when I am writing or just to lay with when sitting on the couch. The best aspect of this is that I can prop my book on it when I am laying down which was my biggest struggle when reading. A great and universal product that I could not recommend more! I also like how well made it is and that you can change the case if you so desire. Plus, the price is very fair.
