Beaded Bungee Bookmarks Review

I’ve been a bookworm since as long as I can remember and it’s one of the reasons I wanted to host Reading Week to share my love of books with my readers. My mom says she used to have to read to me constantly when I was little. I taught myself to read at age 3 and always knew when my mom tried to skip a page in my bedtime stories. There was no fooling me as child!

My house is full of bookcases with all the books I’ve collected over the years. My daughter, Olivia (age 13 in July), shares my love of books and we are actually starting to read the same ones! I love YA (Young Adult) books like The Pretty Little Liars so it’s fun to be able to discuss books with my daughter. One thing I’ve never really had though is a nice book mark. I’ve normally just used scraps of paper like old receipts, bills and even tissues! They work for the most part except when you fall asleep reading in bed which happens to me ALL THE TIME! I spend at least an hour reading each night before and will often wake up in the morning with my book on the floor and no idea where I left off!

Twin Cottage Industries sent me two of their signature product, the Beaded Bungee Bookmark. They say that it’s simply the best bookmark ever and I’d have to agree! Since I’ve been using this bookmark, I’ve never lost my spot.

The Beaded Bungee Bookmark is an elastic, adjustable bungee cord that stays on your book as you are reading so that you never lose your spot. Even if your book falls on the floor, you will still know where you left off. It fits on books of any size- paperback or hardcover and it looks nice too with their decorative accents. Over 40,000 people are currently using the Beaded Bungee Bookmark because they work great, look nice and are affordable at $5.99.

I received two Beaded Bungee Bookmarks and I’ve used them both on hardcover and paperback books. The charms on the bookmarks are very pretty. One is a silver circle with the word ” Believe” engraved on it  and the other is a gold seashell with beaded accents.To use, you simply put the elastic around the book open to the page you are currently at. Then as you turn the page you just tuck the page under the cord. It’s also adjustable since books can be different sizes.  Watch this video to see the Beaded Bungee Bookmark in action!
