Well it’s no secret that I really love the products at Reading Comfort. I had the opportunity to review The Book Buddy a while back and you can see that review here (Also, check out the promotional video for the Book Buddy). I just love it and use it all the time in bed especially but even on the couch-really anywhere. It really does make reading a lot easier and for me with my sore hands, it’s a lifesaver at times. Anyhow, Amanda asked if I’d like to review any other products and I jumped at the chance of course. I was lucky enough to review quite a few of their terrific products including bookmarks and book covers.
Elastic Four-Ribbon Bookmark (the Burgundy colored one) – Well I just love this bookmark and it’s so beautiful. It’s got pretty ribbons and a lovely button towards the top. I found a different way of using it than it’s supposed to be but the elastic itself is quite snug (it will probably loosen over time) but for now I put the ribbons in the book and bring the elastic around the entire book with the button sitting at the top and it’s working just great! That way the pages of my book aren’t getting smushed in any way. This bookmark is really great for hardback books or the bigger paperback ones. The four ribbons can also be used as markers for pages you wish to go back to for quotes, etc. This bookmark is really made for hardcovers and you put the elastic around the front cover itself and use the ribbons as bookmarks but with my way I can use it on any book it’ll fit and it doesn’t damage pages or the cover.
Glitter Mark (the black one with the x button) – again this bookmark is beautiful as well. It’s a smaller one so it fits really well on those smaller paperback books or even the medium size ones. Again, I’m using it the same way as the other one. I put the lovely ribbon in my book and bring the elastic around the whole book with the glittery X on the front. It looks really pretty and it’s working just great! Again, this one should be used like the 4 Elastic one but my way is working just fine for me.
Now we move on to the book covers which I love! I have always liked book covers especially when I go out somewhere because I don’t always want people gawking at me trying to see what I’m reading. lol. I got a set of three – one for a small paperback, one that fits the medium size paperbacks, and the last one for the bigger hardbacks or even a bigger paperback of which I’ve had quite a few. I’ve tried all three sizes and I really like them. They fit the books well and have a nice long ribbon to mark your page. As well, they have a pretty button on the top too which just makes them look even more attractive.
The inside pattern of the ones I got is just so pretty. I’m kind of girly when it comes to this kind of stuff so I really liked this pattern. As well look how nice it is when you have your book in it with the ribbon.
I’ve found all the products I’ve gotten at Reading Comfort very well made. My Book Buddy gets lots of use and is still in the same condition as when I got it. The book covers are made of very nice material and I imagine they will last quite a long time as well. The bookmarks are made of good quality elastic and seem very durable. Make sure to check out the Reading Comfort website for all that they offer. There are so many products that would make fantastic Christmas presents for the book lover in your life.
