The one question I get most of all from my followers on Instagram is: 'Do you actually use your Page Anchor?' So, today I'm coming at you with my ling awaited Page Anchor review. I'm about to give you the brutally honest truth (which I can say because they totally unfollowed me on Instagram 😉🤣 )
Also, big shout out to my big sister for getting me my Page Anchor! Thanks a million.
Now, let's dive right into my Page Anchor review.
What is a Page Anchor?
A Page Anchor is a gorgeous looking bookish accessory designed to hold your book open while you read (or take photographs).
How Do You Use It?
The Page Anchor is simple to use. You slot the two pins between the pages of your novel, and slide the anchor down. When it's time to turn the page, you push the anchor up (not the whole way so it falls out), turn the page, and side it back down again. Does that get annoying? Sure, sometimes it does.
How Often Do I Use It?
I use my Page Anchor whenever I'm writing in my diary or reading a tightly bound book (i.e. my Knickerbocker Sherlock Holmes books). I generally don't reach for my Page Anchor for any ordinary book because I don't have an issue holding it open. I try to buy floppy books that will lie flat in my hand or on my bed, so I don't have to struggle to hold them.
Would I Recommend It?
Sure! As I mentioned above, the Page Anchor is a great accessory, so if you have the spare money and want one, definitely go for it! However, it's by no means a necessity for reading, nor does it elevate your status in the bookstagram community (as I've seen a few people theorise). It's simply a great way to hold your book open, and a very pretty accessory to have.
