January Thumb Thing Giveaway!

On a recent trip to Barnes & Noble I found the most lovely book reading accessory - the Thumb Thing! This month I'm giving away three of them (size medium, random colors) - one each to three winners.

From the Thumb Thing website:

How it works?

Simply put the Thumbthing onto your thumb and place into the spine of the book. The two wings will hold the pages open more easily, making reading more comfortable.

It allows you to read with one hand only.

It prevents the spine of the book from being broken.

When finished reading place the Thumbthing into the top of the book so it doesn’t get lost.


Contest runs from January 16, 2009 to 11:59 PM EST January 31, 2009. Winner will be announced February 1, 2009. Open to US residents only.

These are COOL, Beth!

I've posted about them at Win a Book. No need to enter me, but go ahead and tell me where you found them -- my sports medicine guy is probably convinced I need one.

Hmm, I've never heard about these before, but would love to try them out. I am pretty compulsive about not breaking the spine on books so anything that helps with that is worth a try.
