When I read I lean on the desk. I’ve tried other arrangements but none work as well. However, the desk is hard, and I put a lot of weight on my elbows; this has always presented a problem for me. Today I bought elbow pads from Dick’s Sports. (Yes, Dick’s Sports.) I came home and read with them, and the experiment so far looks very successful. In fact, now that I have them, I’m discovering other situations where they might be useful, such as when I type. Maybe I’ll just never take them off.
Then again, my cousin did that with sports-goggle glasses, and looked so geeky that even I was uncomfortable.
