Holding up a Kindle Fire for any extended period of time, like say when reading an ebook or when streaming a movie through Netflix, can get quite tiring on the arms despite the lightweight nature of this device. There are also times when you want to be hands free using this device anyway, like when you are using it for movie watching for example, as you’ll quickly find you have no more desire to be holding a tablet whilst watching a show any more than you’d desire to be holding your TV.
There are a variety of different options to choose from when choosing a Kindle Fire holder for reading in bed which will vary in usefulness dependant on what your main motivation for buy one is. For the average person who wants to watch a movie hands free in bed then a simple pillow holder might solve your problem. These are lap cushions are designed to prop up a tablet or other eReader devices like Nooks so you don’t have to be holding them all the time.
An alternative to these is an headboard mount which clamps onto the bedframe and can be swiveled and adjusted so you can find the most comfortable viewing angle whilst you lay in bed. A more versatile arrangement to this is a pillow holder.

Prop ‘n Go Lite – Hybrid Lap Desk for iPad and eReaders with Adjustable Angle Control
I didn’t buy the Prop n Go lap stand for my Amazon Fire, I actually bought it for another device but the design is so perfect it works on this, my Kindle eReader and and I fully expect it to work with every other tablet on the market today too.
The really nice thing about this particular lap stand holder is how easy it is to adjust the viewing angle from one of the 14 different angles available from a shallow 9 degrees to a steep 75 degrees with 12 more in between at around 5 or 6 degree increments. This means no cocking your head or craning your neck around to get the most comfortable position or twisting and tilting your body to avoid any screen glare from indoor or outdoor light. Nope, just adjust the angle until you find the position you like and this lap holder will hold it there rock steady for as long as you like.
The Prop n Go has also got you covered when it comes to storing those little accessories every Amazon Fire should have, like the wall charger or a capacitive stylus and a cleaning cloth. There’s a padded storage pouch underneath which is big enough to hold all these accessories AND the Amazon Fire itself, in or out of whatever fire case you decided to buy to protect it.
If you are looking for a kindle lap desk which is as comfortable on a table or desk as it is at home on your lap whilst you lie in bed or lounge on the couch, then look no further than this one.
