Reviewed by Rochelle Caviness

The UltraOptix Bookmark magnifier is a member of UltraOptix's Handi-Lens line of products. This product line is aptly named, for this bookmark is definitely handy!

This bookmark is actually, a 6.25-inch by 2.25-inch flexible, plastic magnifier designed to be able to magnify the entire width of a normal book's page. It has inch measurements along one edge, and metric measurements along the other. It even comes with a small tassel at the top so that it is easily visible when used as a bookmark. This tassel also helps prevent the bookmark from slipping down, into the book.

This magnifier is extremely thin, and it slips easily between the pages of a book. This is not a magnifier that I would want to use to read an entire book, simply because it does not offer a crystal clear viewing area, as do the UltraOptix's acrylic magnifiers. However, it does serve nicely for reading footnotes, and I found it very practical to use with my cookbooks. It not only marks the page I'm using, but it also lightweight, easy to use, and washable!
