    Right, similar to the experiment of putting your hands together:
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1600232

    What hand do you write with? What hand do you hold a book with, what hand do you use to turn the pages and finally, do you turn pages from the top or bottom of a book?

    I have been thinking about this for a while, as I seem to be different than most right-handed people in this aspect...

    I am right handed, hold book with right, turn pages with left and turn pages from the bottom of a book.

    Me too. I'm right handed but usually use my left hand for most other things. For example when I open a bottle of water I hold it with my right hand and turn it with my left, or when I'm eating crisps I hold the pack with my right and eat with my left.

    Same here. I would say that while I write with my right hand, my left is probably the strongest hand.

    I'm right handed, and I generally hold a book with both hands, so flick the pages over with my right hand. But, if I have to hold the book with only one hand, I'd choose my right and page-turn with the left at the top of the page.

    This is a weird thing to be interested in, you know.

    I thought this survey was going to be about which hand you, erm, relieved yourself with.

    I hold the book with my left generally I think? And turn my pages with my right hand, from the middle of the page. Is that an option? or maybe the bottom. Not the top though.

    I am right handed; my left hand is stronger but my right hand is more co-ordinated.

    I hold the book with my left hand, or sometimes both. I turn the pages with my right hand, from the top of the page.

    If I try and turn a book page with my right hand, it feels so unnatural to me!

    Write with left
    Hold book in right
    Turn page with left, at the bottom or middle

    I'm a bit strange with my hands anyway though, I'm left-handed but have to play tennis (or any other sport swinging a bat of some sort) with my right

    I hold the book in my left hand. I don't use any hand to turn the pages, I just sort of release the page from my thumb and collect it under the next thumb. If it is a large book where that is not possible, I use my right hand at the top of the page. Unless I'm sitting at a desk, where it'll be the bottom.

    My results may not make much sense, because when I was little whenever I ate supper I would read at the same time, and learnt to do many maneuvers with my left hand...
