So I come from a country where I see from time to time students using bookholders in the classroom during lectures especially during studying.


In college in the US I rarely saw these kinds of things being used, but I might be wrong -- are these widely used in the US?


Bookstands like those illustrated in the Amazon link are quite uncommon in US collegiate libraries. Not unknown, but it is indeed unusual to see them.
