Post Some gadget that can enlarge book pages for reading?

I tried to search for such a device which can enlarge/ magnify a physical book when kept behind it or whatever, but couldn't get the right words to search for, neither got any good results.

Does such a device or gadget exist? Need not be an electronic one. I need it so that I can read a book much more easily and even by keeping it at the few feet's distance (while lying etc).

Try searching for "book magnifier". Shouldn't be hard to find.

I've seen simple plastic or glass fresnel lenses (I think that's the name) that cover an entire page--a possibility?

Thanks skip and Mike, I got quite many of them, sorry it was my mistake not knowing what exact words to use for the search.

What is your price range? Perhaps what you really need is a pair of reading glasses? Some of these are as cheap as $1. I don't know how old you are, but most people who are over around 45-50 need reading glasses, especially in lower light.

A lighted magnifying glass perhaps?
