Reading Comfort makes one of my absolute favourite book related products. The Book Buddy. I literally use mine every day! They range in price from $14.95 and up. A picture is worth a thousand words - the video gives you a clearer idea...
But they also have a lot of other book related items that would make great gifts or stocking stuffers.
These book covers come in a variety of sizes (mass, trade and hardcover) and patterns.
Jeannie is pictured here. I tried out the mass market size. I like to look after my books and this is a great way to protect the cover. Just slip the covers into the pockets. Or a a friend pointed out - you can keep what you're reading private. And the bookmark is built in.
On the right is the elastic 4 ribbon bookmark. The elastic in this model is very sturdy - meant only for hardcover books. It has a really beautiful button at the top. I must be backwards. I found it easiest to have the bookmarks holding from the bottom of the book. Having 4 is great to keep track of quotes you want to use in reviews. This would also be handy for cookbooks or researching a paper for school.
The glittermark bookmark also fits over the cover of your book and features a single ribbon bookmark. It's really very pretty. Again, I found it best suited to a hardcover. It does work on a softcover book, but it's best if you're about 25 pages into it first.
All items are well stitched and attractive. Thanks to Amanda for the review samples!
