BeanPad — Episode 2: It's all that — and more
Yesterday's Episode 1 featured this new arrival on the iPad accessory scene,
courtesy of a recommendation from my friend, tech maven Paul Biba,
which I up to then considered the apotheosis of iPad stands/holders.
The BeanPad relegates the BookArc to a distant second place for the following reasons:
1. You can carry it around easily because it's one integrated unit; the BookArc requires you carry it separately.
2. The BeanPad is infinitely adjustable in terms of viewing angles — the BookArc is limited to a couple dictated by the device's design.
3. The BeanPad is much more adaptable to different environments such as your lap, car, desk, couch, in bed, what have you, as a result of its inherently morphable shape — the BookArc, being a piece of heavy aluminum, is what it is and cannot adapt.
4. The BeanPad's beanbag is comforting and warm as opposed to the industrial aluminium (a nod to my UK homies, that) BookArc.
5. The BeanPad is far more stable than the BookArc, which is critically important when Gray Cat enjoys more than almost anything in the world rubbing her head against the iPad's edge. She knocked over the iPad all the time when it was mounted on the BookArc; since I traded it out for the BeanPad a couple hours ago, that problem's been put paid to — permanently.
BeanPad in Black, White, or Pink: $50.
Full disclosure: BeanPad has no idea I exist, much less anything to do with this and yesterday's posts.

Thanx so much for that, Joe! I'd given up on reading The New Yorker and Wired on my iPad in bed because it was so clunky and heavy - this looks like the answer.

I still can't shake the fact it looks like your iPad has a growth.
