Ereaders and small tablets are designed to be lightweight, but, still, if you want a more comfortable experience reading in bed, you can build this simple boom to hold the device for you.
You just need an $9 Ikea desk lamp (also useful for mounting speakers, a webcam, or a camera), a car holder mount for your ereader, and mounting tape. Ikeahacker Tony Rex has the instructions for replacing the lamp with the ereader mount.
The mount probably won’t work with the iPad, since the article notes a weight limit of about 300 grams, but it might do for smaller tablets (including a rooted Nook turned into the ultimate ereader).
You can even store your reading glasses on the boom and attach an LED booklight.
