Brief Overview:
StudyPod is a small, sturdy, portable book holder available in black, blue or pink. Identical BookPod is available in black, gray, or beige.


In-Depth Look:

Ever wish you had an extra pair of hands? The StudyPod is just as good as an extra set of hands, when you are trying to hold a book up in an inclined position while trying to keep the pages in place. The StudyPod was designed by a teacher for students. It helps make study more comfortable and efficient, freeing up your hands and your work space. Having the book upright helps with your posture and the angle is perfect for use while at a computer monitor. It is recommended for 3rd grade – Adult.


When not in use, the StudyPod closes up neat, small and compact (6.75" x 9" x 1.33"). It looks like a book and would easily fit in a backpack, bookcase or locker. It should easily hold up to the wear and tear of being lugged around the house and back and forth to classes.

When you are ready to use it, fold down the support bar on the back. Open the case. Flip down the ledges to sit the book on. Slide the locking bar into place. Sit the book on the ledges and put the page bars at the position desired. For more help, an instruction sheet is included and a video is available online, along with a printable pdf. It should hold most books of various heights and thicknesses, up to 2.25” thick. That is a very thick book. We used it with a book much wider and taller than the StudyPod and it held up perfectly.

Inside is a handy storage pocket to hold notes, pens/pencils, calculator, etc. So it doubles as a pencil case.


Need a little inspiration to get started with your studies? Look inside the StudyPod and you will find the cleverest little circle of famous quotes and interesting tidbits. One of my favorites is the one by Thomas Edison, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.” How is that for inspiration to get to work?

Now that school is back in session, you might need some fundraising ideas. Selling these for $20 each could make your group a profit of $10 each. That would quickly add up. Click here more information.

What I Like:

It is small, sturdy and portable. It is easy to set up and use. It makes for great hands-free reading.

What I Don't Like:

There is a small learning curve to figure out how to turn the pages "gracefully" from one page bar to the other page bar. But there is a handy video to show you two suggestions. Watch it here.

How We Use It:

I homeschool my 10 and 7 year old daughters, while caring for our newest bundle of joy, our 10 month old daughter. So there are many times that I am holding our baby while reading books to the older girls. As most babies tend to do, the little one wants to grab at the book...bending the pages, ripping the pages, losing our place. So I use the StudyPod to hold the book while I hold the baby...out of the reach of the book. Works for us.
