Found a Book stand to hold Reference books while drawing

Found this acrylic Paperchase Cook Book Stand on clearance at a Borders store, and it dawned on me that it could be quite useful when drawing from reference books.
This book stand can comfortably hold different book sizes like these recent additions to my personal library.
Avatar: The Last Airbender (The Art of the Animated Series):A very fine example of animation history and cartoon-style drawings that would make a great addition to any Avatar fan's collection and kid's visual reference library.
Really like this fold out sheet of concept art from The Art and Making of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Highly recommended for fans of this franchise.This book stand can securely hold reference magazines and how-to-draw books at a comfortable viewing angle while protecting them with its large front acrylic panel from any stray paint and splatter that could be created while working at a drawing table.
Perhaps its only downside is that being a rigid design, it does not fold down for storage and always takes up a good amount of space.
