Are you a fan of paper books or eBooks?

My answer used to be: "Books during the day and Kindle when I'm in bed". I guess I've gotten used to this routine, I don't know. But lately, I've been enjoying buying paper books so I can jot down notes and underline passages. Don't worry, I don't destroy them; rather, they're notes of love and interest (we have to say, Kindle sucks for this).

The problem is that sometimes I find it uncomfortable to read in bed. I have to sit up, stretch out my arms, and use both hands to hold the book. If I try to use just one hand, it quickly goes numb.

Recently, Instagram's annoying and sometimes wonderful algorithm showed me what a page holder was, and I thought: "I want it, I need it!" The first thing that came to mind was: "What a hassle, I'll probably end up losing it". Then I had an idea: "What if I make a bookmark and page holder in one?". Besides, I'm always losing the postcards I use as bookmarks. I could somehow attach it to the book, and voilà.

And so I did. And I have to say, I love it.

Do you want one? You can buy it through Etsy - "Special offer, only for a limited time!" Just kidding, but yeah... You need one.
