My personal solution, whether reading a novel at the beach or referring to a
technical manual while typing, is to use a simple, inexpensive (<$10) book
weight that you can buy from places like Barnes & Nobel. It's made of
leather, shaped like an hourglass, and has weights in both ends. You lay it
horizontally across the pages & it holds down both sides of the book in the
open position. Voila! An excellent "investment".

Agreed, but has anyone found a solution for this problem that is more
practical than the three-ring approach? I suppose the spiral-bound approach
might be the solution.

What have the rest of your experiences been on spiral-binding, relative
cost, etc.?
