Holiday Goodies Week: Book Darts

Today’s second find is for book lovers—and in particular, the folks like me who read cookbooks for fun, and then find that they want to try one recipe after another but to dogear every page would trash the book… Enter Book Darts.

These ingenious little metal markers hold your place without marring your book’s pages. It’s perfect for library books, and it’s terrific for cookbooks. Check out my copy of Nigel Slater’s Kitchen Diaries:


Man, I love that book. Look how many recipes I marked!

Last week I received a special offer for regular customers only, so I promptly wrote to them and asked if I could extend that offer to you, my readers. And they agreed! Here’s the scoop, straight from the good people at Book Darts:

“This year to celebrate the season, we’ve created a Holiday Tin. Priced at a thrifty $4.95, each features 30 Brass darts housed in one of our original silver tins with label artwork featuring a decorative ribbon… the perfect small holiday gift for any reader on your list.”

Now, for the special offer. It’s only supposed to be available to regular customers, but I got the OK from Book Darts to extend it to readers of Words to Eat By: For every $30 you spend at Book Darts, they’ll throw in a Holiday Tin, free. So let’s say you want to pick up some stocking stuffers for your book-loving friends, and you take advantage of the company’s threefer holiday special: three tins of 100 Book Darts for thirty smackers. You get a Holiday Tin, free! And they’ll do this for every $30 you spend. Use the code wordstoeatby in the “comments” section at checkout, and they’ll take care of the rest.

Still to come: One last post, with a giveaway you won’t find anywhere else.

    I have to admit that I'm really envious because this would have been a perfect gift to list on A Traveler's Library's post on 10 Perfect Gifts for Traveler's Who Read. But thanks for pointing it out. I've ordered several Christmas gifts for my reading family.
