Happy New Year, Mitch!
I think this is an excellent product! I agree, that brown paper - it's actually called "kraft" paper with a "k" - is great to work on. I especially like the idea of being able to carry your coffee with you wherever you go, because, as we all know, coffee is an indispensable to writing as is ink.
I would like to make a marketing suggestion, though. Instead of Ebay, you might want to think about selling your "Contraption" on Etsy.com. It is a site completely devoted to handmade objects, and you probably will have better luck attracting the kind of buyers you need. Plus, their listing fees are much less than Ebay, which takes a huge chunk of your selling price. Check them out!
Good luck with this! I think it's an excellent product - creative, useful, and fun.

Great idea, Mitch, and I second Laura's suggestion that you try Etsy, it's really a terrific resource. I can picture using this product in the park, with the pad on one side and a lap top on the other. The clips are a great feature because you can turn the pad around when you're walking so that the clips keep the pages from flying open. And the idea of moving the pages from front to back as they're filled is genius. You can flip the book over and fill the blank sides of the pages. Happy New Year, Mitch!

p.s. And at that price point, you'll have many buyers.
