I just received this for my birthday from my husband. This bathtub caddy is a great idea in theory, but in practice it is beautiful to look at, but unstable. It spans the tub nicely, but unless you have at least 4-6 inches width of bathtub edge to prop the caddy on both sides, it is very easy to 'bump' the caddy and have your book and shiraz join you in the bath. So...you have to be very, very careful with not to dislodge the caddy once yoiu position it. Also... the metal prop for your book/magazine doesn't work very well as the ridges in the wood base of the caddy are too narrow in length and width to properly stabalize a book. It might be improved by some sort of clip for the top of the book to hold it and the page in place. Do a dry run with this item before you try to use it in a real bath situation. Good luck with this.
