A quality book holder gives back the enjoyment arthritis can rob from readers. Almost all arthritis patients find that the disease changes their lives in some way. It can affect their everyday activities, their jobs, and even their relationships with family and friends. Patients tend to become less active after developing arthritis. Many don't want to, but some days, pain dictates the events of the day.
Books can be wonderful companions for arthritis patients, but even reading, a relatively inactive pastime, can wreak havoc on painful joints. With sore fingers, wrists, elbows, or shoulders, it may be hard to hold a book for even a short time.
