    so here i was with a leather case for my nook but it did not have a stand and i desperately wanted to have a stand whenever i want to watch a video and leave my hands free. I supposed it can get a picture easel and use that but since i am already carrying my nook, i wanted something i can easily carry in my pocket. A new case with stand is probably $25-$40 - and i am sure my wife would want the same for her nook a well - so instead i went down my local computer store and bought a cable wrap for $7 -

    so i connect to ends to get the strap longer, insert the pins through the cable holes - with the kit i bought i can make 2 of these (one for me and the other for my wife)

    and now i can watch my videos hand free in landscape

    Here is my cheap stand, a leather juggling ball. I got mine free at a convention I attended, but I think these are $3-5 in a toy store. It sets the NC at about a 20-25 degree angle which is comfortable for reading or typing. And, it stays put. 3 to a package gives you cheap stands at home, work and on the go.[​IMG]
