    If I'm sitting up I like to cross my legs and prop up up at an angle on my legs.

    If I'm laying down more on the couch, I either hold it up on my stomach, or just bend my knees and rest it on the tops of my legs.

    It can take a bit of getting used to, but I find it pretty comfortable and better than laying my heavy laptop on my lap when I'm on the couch.

    I put a clear vinyl skin on the back of the ipad. It gives it a bit of stickiness that lets me hand hold it with ease.

    This is by far the most comfortable way to hold it.

    Normally I just have my legs propped up, but I'll definitely have to give the pillow thing a try! Good idea!

    I actually picked up a small netbook lapdesk from Best Buy for $20. The iPad works pretty well on there but for best results i suggest using it in the Apple Case on the lapdesk. I either put the desk on the arm of the chair or on my lap (ie. belly) and it's pretty decent.
