Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! February 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is handy for avid book readers. You can read, knit, or do other things with your hands, without losing your place. I bought these as stocking stuffers for my husband and son--they were happy to receive them and started using them the very next day. January 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great hard to find book weight I searched high and low for a book weight like this and couldn't find one anywhere, until finally I spotted it in VT country store catalog. It's great for holding cookbooks open. December 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best bookmark ever I would be lost without my leather book weight. I use it whenever I'm out and about, eating on my own, or at home. I don't have to fumble with keeping the book open while I eat my meal. People have remarked what a cool thing it is. I always steer them to the Vermont Country Store. December 17, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Could be heavier Weight is sufficient for modest sized books, but nothing heavier. December 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Makes multi-tasking easier. I got tired of trying to hold my books open while I was doing other things like eating or leaning sideways on the bed so I thought I'd order this handy gadget. Now I have to learn to read slower so that I don't have to move it so often lol. Kidding aside, it is a great help when you need to hold the book open with no hands. February 14, 2014

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Leather Book Weight …

"I usually go out to dinner alone, and I always take a book with me. This bookmark helps me so I do not have to use my cell phone to keep my pages from turning. I gave the one I had to a friend who has had a stroke, and she was so excited to get the book mark. This is a wonderful product for anyone that prefers books to Nooks." - Judy Ballew, St. Louis, MO

"I love this book weight. It's heavier than the one Barnes and Nobles sells. I recommended it for overall quality and value. " - Bridget, Ann Arbor, MI
