Cracking idea, and perfect for highlighting as you go...
on 17 February 2016
Super idea! I spend hours each day on book research, but was brought up never to mark a book (something I just can't shake I'm afraid). I've tried using sticky page markers but after a week or two they turn into curly messes on the outside of the book.
These little beauties are a peel off and stick revelation. I simply work my way through a book and as I come to a relevant passage, I simply use one of these to highlight the beginning of the passage, which it turn makes them really easy to find if I skim through later to take notes.
Each strip is only half covered in adhesive though, but this doesn't distract from the job it does, each one remains firmly affixed to the page, and the text is easily visible underneath.
These are so useful I've ordered a new batch. The beauty of using this approach is that the book is always saleable as used here on Amazon once finished with, as the books value is not detracted by highlighter pen/ink/pencil marks. When you've finished with the book, each strip pulls off without leaving a mark on the paper beneath. Perfect if you're borrowing someone else's book but still need to highlight text.
Like most cracking ideas, these highlighter strips are easy to carry and quick to use - perfect for anyone who has to crash through lots of text highlighting as they go. Well worth a try at this price to see if they fit your way of working. And far better than devaluing a book you might be able to sell later.
Hope this helps.
