I love my bookweight so much I just had to give one to my grand-daughter to pass on a good tradition. These are a must have item for me. Quality!!

The book weight in an excellent device. Very useful! Without it, I'm always perching something on a book to hold it open, but other things are too big, not heavy enough, or slide off too easily. The book weight is elegant and functional. Just enough friction from the suede to stay in place. My wife and I recently decided that our 2 were not enough, so we bought 5 more, just to have them around.

Great value & excellent quality
I love this book weight! It is a must-have for any book reader. My only wish is that it came in different colors. I would love to have had a brown one.

I remember seeing this item several years ago in a Levenger catalog. I have a stand to rest my book on, and it was tiresome to keep the pages open. This works perfectly!. I wish that they came in more cheerful colors, like yellow or red.

Purchased More Than Once
I bought this as a gift because my mom was looking through the catalog and said she thought it was really cool. She reads all the time and this book weight is way better than trying to hold her book open with salt shakers and staplers or whatever she has on hand. It was so popular that my dad was always stealing it, so this year I bought him his own. I wouldn't be surprised if I end up buying them for my entire family because they're so popular.
The only thing tiny suggestion I have to Levenger: Allow for a longer monogram. While initials are nice, it would be great to be able to put a name on it. And my dad has four initials, so I couldn't put them all on. Allowing more characters would be great.

I've looked for a quality book weight for quite some time and finally remembered that my sister in law loves Levenger. As soon as I saw the book weight, I couldn't wait to have it. I ordered two of them, one for travel and one for home.
From the stitch quality to the weight of them, they're absolutely perfect. I could not have ordered a better book weight and am so very glad to have found them here.

A formidable gift for the avid reader
I purchased this as a gift for my mother-in-law after she was impressed when she noticed my Levenger book weight that I've used for 10+ years now. When it was delivered I noted the same quality and feel as mine. However, the style of my old one is sleek, while this one appears more bulky. Despite the aesthetics, it will still make a unique gift for an avid reader.

I am a teacher and research historian. I use this item daily to hold open research materials while writing. It is an absolute essential for those of us in this field. A must-have for graduate students, professors, legal researchers, etc. Sometimes, the most innocuous little objects make all the difference.

Very useful for research. Don't bring to Germany!
I bought this for my husband who is an academic and he has used it for years in his research. He finds it hugely useful. However, this morning he was detained in the Frankfurt airport as it is considered a cudgel in Germany and you may not bring it in because of their weapons laws. So be aware that if you travel with this you will need to check it in your luggage!
