Rated 5 out of 5 by from When extra weight is a good thing I already had one of these...I bought this one for a gift. I've used mine for years. Very handy, especially when I'm eating and reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item! Had been getting frustrated always losing my place in my smaller cookbooks. Remembered seeing this item a long time ago--don't remember where--maybe someone I knew had one. When I saw this, I knew I had to order one. This works perfect for any size book. I wouldn't be without it! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful It keeps hardcover books and large paperback books open. It's worth buying if you like to read while eating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Productivity lifesaver I'm writing and editing a surgical textbook that has required reviewing a number of large and small textbooks in the process. I recalled using one of these book weights for studying a long time ago in undergrad school, and honestly forgot about them over the years. After using rubber bands, clamps, and even other books to hold the books I was reading open, I saw this product in your Christmas catalog that was included with an item my wife had ordered. This instantly brought back memories of studying in undergrad school, so I purchased two of them. They've been a life saver!! I'm thankful that you were able to offer them, and they are serving my needs admirably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally bought one! I have looked at these for years, but never got around to putting one in my cart. Now that I have, I'm regretting the time lost. It's such a simple item yet it works so very well. The book weights are truly a five star product, and I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great idea! I love to read on my lunch break, but difficult to read when your lunch needs 2 hands. This book weight holds done the pages quite nicely for me to read and eat at the same time. Works best on hard copies and trade paperbacks. For paperbacks it holds down enough to read without using your hands. Will buy for my sister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save the Bananas! Who would have thought that a banana would make a great book weight -- my husband did! He likes to read at the counter while he eats and thought the banana was a perfect weight to keep book pages open. Unfortunately, they get a little mushy for eating. He was pleasantly surprised that I found an actual book weight at the Vermont Country Store. I Googled it and there was our perfect answer to save our bananas! Now we just eat them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential This was my second purchase after using my first book weight for over a year. It is so helpful when needing to use your hands for something other than holding the pages of the book, especially in the wind. Have given as a gift and will also give other to gift or keep in purse for me.
