I have purchased products from Levenger for the past several years and the products only seem to get better. I purchased two of these "old fashioned" book weights after sitting on the fence for nearly a year as to whether or not I truly needed them. However, I wish I would not have waited so long. I currently have a job where I spend countless hours editing legal/scholarly articles and was constantly in need of a way to hold down reference books and other materials. After using the book weights for a few months I can say that they are made of durable leather, have stitching that makes them seem very elegant, and offer just the right amount of flexibility and weight distribution to hold down the pages of even the most stubborn of books.

Recommended with reservations.I was one of many who pleaded with Levenger to bring back the original, flexible leather bookweight, and immediately purchased one when these new ones became available. I was disappointed, however, that the updated version is not the same as the original. It is shorter, a bit wider, and most importantly MUCH less flexible. Admittedly better for travel than the unwieldy bookstop, but lametably still an imposter. Thanks for trying, Levenger.

I use this while I read for my grad studies. In the summer heat, with the fan blowing directly on me, this product is perfect to keep my pages aligned and my place in my reading.

As far as I know, this is the only product out there like this book holder. I use it constantly, and it looks great too. When I lost my previous one, I had to order another one right away!

Everyone in our household has these. They do exactly what they're supposed to. Much better than a stapler!We just gave two monogrammed book weights to our daughter, who is a literature major. She will be using them constantly.

Smart and Functional
from Seattle, WA
This real leather book weight is great. It's heavy enough to hold open my textbooks as I'm creating class notes (I'm the prof). When I was a librarian I coveted these. I only wish the Levenger quality came in saddle-leather brown.
from Arlington, TX
High quality, heavy/sturdy, beautiful presentation, smells amazing (real leather). Not at all bad for something 'made in China'. I've always loved Levenger; they never disappoint.
from La Quinta, CA
I've been considering this item for awhile, as I am a lifelong learner, always reading a large text of some kind. This fills the bill beautifully for keeping the place, in an elegant manner. I actually ordered two, so I would have one for use with a large photo project I'm working on. The quality is what you would expect from Levenger, and will be durable and in use for many years to come.
This was a fabulous investment!
I loved this bookweight so much I bought two more of them right away. I am a graduate student in Classics, and I recommend this for anyone who needs to work with a number of books open at once. It works on every book I've tried so far, from heavy reference books to small paperbacks. It's heavy and long enough to hold a book open, but not so large that you can't use the book while it's there. I second the comments about other color options; it would be great to see the bookweight in brown leather or another color.
Wedding Officiant Gift
I bought this as a gift for the minister that officiated part of my wedding ceremony. She is an avid reader of large biblical commentaries that do not like to stay open. She loved this gift and that it was personalized for her!
bought for grandchild
from nazareth, pa.
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!!
from Malvern, PA
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.--Fred
