The old recipe-book holder, a necessity for hands-free reading in the kitchen, is getting a modern makeover. Today’s version doubles as holder of nearly every way you can handle a recipe.

Let’s see. Start with iPad, Kindle, Ebook, Nook and Android. Add a PC tablet and perhaps a small LCD-TV. Oh yes, and an old-fashioned paper book.

The result is the BookGem holder. And when you’re finished, it folds up like a pair of eyeglasses and fits into  your pocket. Extreme Yankee ingenuity at $14.95.
