In My Book®

Reviews & News

The Book Bench Madeleine Schwartz: "The books we often cherish most are the ones given to us by people we love...this may be the inspiration for In My Book. Cute dedications, sweet illustrations; wide enough for a short note, they fit comfortably inside a paperback, a picture of an open book just peeking out from the top."

KIMBOOKTU MAIL A BOOKMARK! "The next time you want to send a card to a booklover, take these into consideration. I think it is a novel idea. The front of the card is a bookmark. The receiver can tear it off the other side where you have written your message. This way they can carry your card in their books wherever they go. A nice idea to send to someone you love."

"'In My Book' is one of our best sellers for greeting cards. Whenever my customers are buying a book as a gift, I recommend an 'In My Book' card. This Christmas season, I paired the "pure poetry" cards with our stock of Christmas poetry books, and we're nearly sold out! The cards also work great with our gift certificates."
