A New Book Stand

It sure took me long enough to finally get a book stand and wow I don’t know how I survived without one for so long!

For those who are still on the fence or thinking of whether to get one, do it!! It feels so liberating to free up my hands. I can put the book on the stand, and do my notes properly without using an elbow to keep the book open (and risk creasing it with the weight of my hand). If you know what I mean haha.

It also feels nice that I don’t have to look down and strain my back and neck while reading. Awesome.

When I’m not using it, it doubles up as a book display. LOL. Okie that’s obviously not the main purpose of the book stand, but I do like seeing books on display like this.

Till the next post 🙂

    Hello Shanna! I’m such a huge fan of your Korean textbook reviews, so I thought I’d trouble you with a question: which do you think is the better series for an intermediate learner, SNU or Ewha? Thank you!

      Hi Nur! Sorry this went into the comment queue! Mmm this is a tough question given that I do like both sets of books (the newest version of SNU/Ewha series). Content wise they are both great.

      Perhaps you can consider other factors too such as whether you are planning to bring them out with you to study or mainly for home use. Cos one thing about SNU books is that they are big and heavy and I won’t want to bring them out with me to study on the go. Ewha is smaller and much lighter. I mean this is not the biggest concern but this does matter too!

      Also, Ewha publishes separate self-study guidebooks which are helpful for those who need that extra bit of help when self-learning. So if you think that it’s good for you, then perhaps Ewha may be the better choice!
