The book bungee is the only book mark I have ever liked. I bought many both for myself and as gifts, always with rave reviews. I think it was the first product I was ever given from Levenger and it started a love affair with this company, which used to be dubbed "Tools for Serious Readers," if I remember correctly. I never imagined I'd see the day that the book bungee, what I considered a Levenger staple, would no longer be available. Please bring it back and be quick about it. Thanks!

Maybe it's me, but this broke after about a month of use.
I will admit that I am a bit rough on books, and maybe my interactions with my three-year old son had something to do with it ...
After about a week, I noticed the bungee seam getting a bit stretched out, nearing the breaking point. Then, about three weeks later, the top part of the bookmark with the slot for the bungee broke off. Bungee part is now no longer attached to the bookmark part.
On a side note, the bookmark is made of thick (~2mm?) hard black plastic that might not work for a lot of books --- you could wreck the binding. The bungee is pretty tight, so this won't work so good for paperbacks either.
I still enjoyed using this before it broke, so I am considering getting another one and being more careful with it.

BRING THEM BACK!!!

By 

from Port Saint Lucie, FL

These were the very first thing I ordered from your company. I loved them so much and bought them for all my friends. It was nice to have a bookmark that didn't easily fall out of the book when in a purse or a tote. Please, please, please bring these back! Your book belt is more for keeping notebooks closed rather than for keeping your place in a book.

Book Bungees? Where are they?

By 

from Frederick, Md

We have used your book bungees for years. We have bought many of them, used them daily but they have finally wore out through frequent use. I get on your web page to buy more but they are not there! Why?Please bring them back.

Bring Them Back

By 

from West Hartford CT

I need these bookmarks. I often have more than 1 book on my night table and I can't decide which book deserves one the most. AND they make great gifts when someone invites me to dinner

discontinued book bungees??

By 

from New Westminster BC Canada

I was given mine as a gift, and use it all the time. I holds my place secure and never damages pages. I wanted to get some for my growing grandkid readers and get another for myself. And they're nowhere?! PLEASE reintroduce the best bookmark ever! Thanks.

I miss book bungees!

By

I absolutely LOVE these and I'm so sad they are gone! I came to Levenger's website to specifically buy these for me and my daughter for Christmas. Please bring them back! I've loved mine to pieces and need new ones!

PLEASE PLEASE BRING THESE BACK. This is a great product....

By 

from Yacolt, WA

Site Member

PLEASE PLEASE BRING THESE BACK. This is a great product. Nothing else like it anywhere. Checked bookstores and online. Both a bookmark and keeps book closed. Notebook Belts that replaced them do not have a bookmark attached.
Steve and Lori, not sure if you read these, but this is one product line, you need to return to the Catalog......

Bring them back please

By

I am very disappointed to find book bungees are no longer available. They worked very well and drew lots of comments from others who thought them innovative. I agree with the other customer on the notebook belts...I have no need of a pen holder.

Book Bungee

By 

from Undisclosed

Site Member

Seriously? These are no longer available? I can't quite figure out why you have discontinued this product and appear to have replaced it with an elastic strap that can hold a pen. Who needs a pen when they are reading? And one that can't even serve as a bookmark? If I only wanted to keep my book closed I could use a regular elastic band. Very disappointed. For what it's worth, I have carried an extra book bungee in my purse for years and have handed out at least 20 to random people. They see me using one and ask me where I got it. When that happens I just hand them one and tell them to enjoy it.
