The great thing about being a human is having these amazing hands with thumbs that allow us to do all sorts of tasks. The other great part about being a human is that we have these brains that can imagine whatever we read, such that they allow our imaginations to explore many lives and to keep learning.
But sometimes use of your thumbs and your need to read clash. Thumbs are needed for eating, washing dishes, prepping dinner, knitting, folding laundry, sewing buttons, thumb wars, sketching, or maybe they are just plain tired! How to read with busy or tired thumbs? With book holders, of course!
