Yes, but safely removable, they say. Most of my fine press books (Folio Society, Franklin Mint, etc) have sewn-in ribbon bookmarks anyway.

I saw those. Cool. But, well, really, who the heck has problems with the current bookmarks. It's like inventing a faster-turning doorknob--nobody has a problem turning them to begin with!

Well, for one, you probably won't accidentally lose these adhesive ones, or stick it in the back of the book while reading and forget to put it into the proper place.

They dont' really excite me, but I can't see how they might be sueful.

Yeah, I like how they just automatically save your place when you shut the book.

I use magnetic ones, and I love them. But they get lost a lot between books.

eh.
seems overly complex and cute to me.
what's wrong with using an old receipt or one of those annoying reply cards in magazines?

Curse this slow turning doorknob! Will this door never open?

>10 MrAndrew: Would that be the door to the attic, the basement...the conservatory, even?
