I freaking love my Kindle. I take it around the house with me, including to the kitchen table. The problem is that when it’s lying flat on the table, 1) there’s a glare from the light above the table, and 2) I have to strain my neck over my bowl of oatmeal to read it. A stand would solve the problem, but since I’m too cheap to shell out cash for a real Kindle stand, so I made my own. It cost me nothing and took 5 minutes.
Here it is:
As you can see, it’s just a piece of cardboard (one of the top flaps of an Amazon shipping box, actually!) with some clear packing tape there to make sure it holds its shape. Here are a couple more photos:
Ok, so it looks a little ghetto when the Kindle isn’t on it, but hey, I did just fashion it out of trash. And you can’t tell how ghetto it looks when the Kindle is on it. I actually use it now to store/display my Kindle on my desk. Oh, it also folds up so you can easily stick it in your laptop bag.
So there you go; a homemade Kindle stand for fuh-ree.
- What do you think — Are you inspired to make or buy one now, or is it just another worthless “thing” to have around?
