Digital bookmarks for old-fashioned books

digitalbookmark.jpg

I’ve never been a person who can finish an entire book in one sitting, even if it’s the latest Harry Potter instalment or one of those un-put-downable Salman Rushdies I’m partial to. I usually stick an old receipt or Post-It note into my books to bookmark where I stopped reading, which works fine for its purposes, but the gadget-collecting side of me was really intrigued by the Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark.

This bookmark takes some of the sophistication we’re used to seeing with internet bookmarking these days, and adds a little technological pizzazz to the humble paper bookmark. It has a built-in clock, a countdown timer with an alarm and a cumulative timer to record the total amount of time you’ve spent reading. Though it’s designed to help children develop the reading habit, I think it works equally well for busy adults who still enjoy a good book. If, like me, you find that you never seem to set aside enough time to read books, you can set the alarm so that you give yourself a fixed amount of time just for that. Or you can keep track of how much time you spend reading every day or week (and hopefully not be horrified by the result).

An added bonus: the Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark comes in neon blue, neon purple and neon green. If you ever wanted a trendy-looking bookmark for the digital age, this is it.

The bookmark costs $8.95 and is suitable for children ages 5 and up.

Your link is not working for me. I'm being asked a username and a password.

Yeah, it looks like something's up with the mark-my-time domain. Hopefully things will be back to normal on their end soon.
