Bronze book dart.

Bronze book dart dutifully keeping a reader’s page.

The advent of Kindle may be a boon for techies and a fine way to carry around a library in your luggage – but it certainly takes some of the romance out of reading. What about the pleasure of turning a page, the dusty, nostalgic smell of old paper, the scattered notes and underlining left behind by past readers? If you’re like me, you like nothing better than the feel of a heavy hardcover or a tattered paperback and half the joy of reading is gazing triumphantly at the stacks of conquered pages against the wall. Book darts are another bit of class and old school style that come in handy, the perfect accessory for the avid reader. The tip of the backside is bent upwards, which makes it easy to slide them over a page.

    I LOVE my book darts! I first heard about them about a year ago and went ahead and ordered 200. They've been one of my most used purchases ever. I used to simply keep a full computer sheet and rip strips to use as book marks whenever I found a passage interesting, but now with Book Darts I can simply dart the passage and move on. It's kept all of the books in my collection looking a lot neater. I really enjoy being able to have many book darts in a book and have the profile not change at all.
