How clever is this?! Robin from In My Book contacted me with a sample of her wonderful greeting card bookmarks, and has offered one to each of THREE winners!
Here’s a description of the product, straight from the In My Book website. It describes me to a “T” – a thrifty recycler/reuser who loves books and giving bookish gifts (thankfully, I’ve yet to use a bologna slice as a bookmark!):
Book lovers are usually known to be economical people and recycling enthusiasts. And they love their books with a passion. You know the saying: “So many books, so little time?“
So, for those of you who support recycling and want to find inexpensive gifts that serve more than one purpose, here’s a nifty idea… A greeting card that perforates to become a bookmark! So throw away those crumpled receipts, old index cards, bologna slices, ripped up parking tickets, and get yourself (and all your friends) some real bookmarks. …some IN MY BOOK® cards!
The cards are printed on heavy watercolor paper, with lighthearted but meaningful gray-scale illustrations by Meredith Hamilton. Inside is blank for your own greeting, and a neatly perforated edge allows the recipient to pull off the front of the greeting card to use it as a durable and personal bookmark.
There are 15 styles, all are headed with “In my Book” and have an illustration that reflects the sentiment. For example: a bed (with book splayed open) and “you’re in between the covers”; Tarzan swinging through the jungle and “you’re quite a character”; a women taking a book down from the highest spot in the case and “you’re top shelf.”
Robin sent me this “you’re in between the covers” greeting. I’m going to tuck it in a book that J will open on Christmas morning . I like the quality of the paper, the cute illustration, and the space to write my personal greeting. In My Book is a thoughtful way to send a note to a friend, and a nice extra to include with a gift book.
Each unique greeting card/bookmark comes with an eye-catching bright red mailing envelope. In My Book products sell for $3.95 online, and at select bookstores, museum shops, and gift boutiques. You can search online to find a store near you that carries In My Book.
