I unabashedly dog-ear my books. Not books from libraries or borrowed from others. Just my books. I like to be able to easily refer back to pages and passages, and when I’m reading, I’m not thinking about having tools at my disposal for the possibility of keeping track of those passages. But were I more prepared, I’d definitely be a person who uses book page tabs.
Page tabs are like mini sticky notes, meant to help annotate your books. They’re great for holding your place when you stop reading and they’re also super useful for those who are big into bullet journals.
And more? Page tabs come in so many rad designs. Gone are the days when your only options for them were in the school supply aisle and they came in a pack of neon colors (no hate on those, though!).
For readers, page tabs can be a thoughtful—and affordable!—gift. Treat yourself to a set or pick some up for another reader in your life.
Note: most of these come from sellers outside of the United States, meaning that shipping might make it worthwhile to buy a few sets and that it might take a bit of time for them to arrive at your door.
