    Yeah, basically. The ridgeline is almost nestled up to the spine between the two pages you are ready, but this is hammocking, after all, so I twist the book slightly so it is asymmetrically centered over the ridgeline. That keeps both pages open right above my head. This works best in my HH with it's fairly taught netting, which keeps the book from slipping. It's the perfect lazy man's way to read a book; you get to lay down and you don't even have to use your arms.

    That was my initial thought as well. I'd be good for a couple of minutes.
