I'd say Santa brought it to me, but I'd be lying. I've been using a standing desk for several years now, though it wasn't really a desk--just an Ikea shelving unit with an extra wide shelf for the keyboard and mouse. This is an actual desk.
It's 50 inches wide, so there's plenty of room for pages of notes or a manuscript to look at while I write. Top shelf holds my speakers, flatscreen monitor, and a few books, as well as a small clip-on lamp.
The middle shelf is for the keyboard and mouse.
The lower shelf will hold more books eventually. Right not it's home to a box of #10 envelopes (for the all-important SASE), and a box of larger envelopes for sending out manuscripts. Though at the rate things are changing, all the markets may be electronic before I get through it.
I'm very pleased with it, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the writing groove now that I have my new desk--and (much more importantly) I feel like I'm finally getting over this damn cold
