I hadn't heard about Sally's solution--sounds great. My solution has been
an inexpensive (less than $5) folding book stand. It is light weight but
balances well and holds all but the thickest manuals just fine. I carry
it in my back-pack or briefcase along with whatever book I plan to read.
It is designed with small prongs to hold the pages open so my hands are
free to type or perform other tasks as needed. In addition to this, I
have a more sturdy rack in my office which also holds pages open
but will accomodate much thicker texts.
