Hehe. Got to work on that wrist and arm strength!

I use a Surface Pro 4 tablet and read in bed with it sometimes. That's
about 3 times heavier than an iPad, although I love it because it is far
more than 3x as useful as an iPad.

I admit that I usually rest it on my chest while reading in bed, or
disable the screen rotation and lay sidewise with it resting on a pillow.

I believe it is still lighter than a large hard cover book like one of
Robert Jordan's or David Weber's.
