Ok, this post is a little frivolous but we could all use a little frivolity now and then!
I found this great picture of a model demonstrating reading glasses that you can wear lying down – they must have mirrors in them that reflect the image down. I had a chuckle at this and then thought this would actually be quite handy. It does take effort to hold my head up but I do love reading.
Fortunately I’m stronger now, but for a while I found it difficult to sit propped up in bed and my arms were too tired to hold a book (so this device wouldn’t have worked for me then), even lying sideways. Instead of reading books, I would listen to audiobooks and podcasts of short stories.
Do you have a Kindle or an e-reader? Is it lighter and easier than a book? I’ve thought about it but seems too expensive for me at the moment, so I borrow paper ones from the library.
What do you think of this invention? What would you invent? Or have you invented something cool?
