Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark - Review & Giveaway



For some of my kids' school assignments, they are required to read a certain amount of material. It's not always easy to keep track of how many minutes they've read. With the Mark-My-Time digital bookmark, the kids can now keep track of the minutes themselves.

The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark is made of sturdy plastic so it does not easily rip or tear like some bookmarks do. I am thrilled when batteries are included when I purchase an item. Thankfully, Mark-My-Time includes a battery and is ready for instant use. It fits easily between pages and does not cause a bump in the pages of books. Instructions are included with the bookmark on how to use the different modes. However, if they become misplaced, you can easily get that information on their website.

There is more than one way to use this bookmark. Three modes of use are available. You can use the Countdown mode and read until the alarm sounds. The Count Up/Cumulative mode is great for keeping track of a weekly or monthly total. It can operate at the same time as the Countdown mode. There is also a Clock mode which lets you know what time it is.



I've had these bookmarks for a short time and have already found them to be a nice item to have. For Driver's Ed, my teenage daughter has to keep a log of how many minutes/hours she drives. She used to have a hard time keeping track. But now she inserts the digital bookmark into her log and takes it with her when she knows she is driving. She sets the counter when she starts and is able to easily see how long she has been driving.

The younger kids have homework assignments, some where they have to read for a set amount of time and some that they need to log how long they have read. This information is easy to see with the Mark-My-Time digital bookmark and they don't need any help deciphering how long they've read or how much time is left.

I've been trying to keep track of how much I read and this would be great! I'd also let my granddaughter use it to keep track of her minutes in reading. Very neat product. Either color would be fine.

Wow this has a bunch of great functions. I'd mainly use this to keep track of my page because my daughter likes to pull the bookmark out of my books.

Our boys are good readers but this would be a really cool motivator to pull out of our box of tricks when the "I don't feel like it's" kick in. Fun! I never knew there was such a thing.

My youngest needs to read at least 20 minutes a day so we would use it to keep track of her time.

I have no color preference

Joshlin said...

I think this is so cool! I would use it to mark my place after my daily Bibal readings. I love both colors, but purple is more girly I guess.

I love both colors.
