There is a question I'm pondering for a while that might sound a bit weird, but - can I put a notebook into the shelf, upright I mean? I always just put it away and laid it somewhere, I think I always feared it might be not so good to put it in like a book; although I can't think of any technical reason why that might be. Any advice?

Think a new age is coming.

Don't block the vents.

You can use something like the twelve south BookArc to prop it up.

Shouldn't be any problem while its sleeping.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....
