Review: Quo Vadis Bookmark

Quo Vadis Bookmark

Quo Vadis has recently started producing these handy book mark/book straps as a way to reserve your place and keep your book closed. It includes a handy ruler on one side,

and the Quo Vadis logo on the other. (Quo Vadis means 'Where are you going" in Latin)

Take your journal in one hand,

and insert the book strap,

(I like to place it about midway from the spine of the book)

then pull the strap around the book - Viola!

Brian Goulet of Goulet Pens recently put together a video showing how to use the Quo Vadis book mark/book strap.

Be sure to check out Laurie's review of the book mark on Plannerisms.

You can buy these at Goulet Pens for $1.50 each, and they will start to be included with all Quo Vadis planners which have the Soya and Club covers.

Nice one! But I think Quo Vadis is "where are you going" in Latin, not in French.

I use mine to keep a Rhodia No. 18 pad closed and my page marked. Works great

Quo Vadis means 'Where to Go" in Latín

Good morning! Sorry, but "quo vadis" is not French, it is Latin.

Also, Levenger has had a very similar product for many years.

Oooooohhhhhh - I am so going to have to fire my fact checker over this one.... wait, that's me!

Seriously - thanks all for the correction. It was just always in my mind that it was French since Quo Vadis is a French company.

PS - A while back, Karen wrote a post on the Quo Vadis blog explaining the terms origins:

Quo vadis = Where are you going, not "where to go". because "vadis" is the second person in singular ;)

Thank you Island! Fixed. :o)

I use an A5 6X9, and I also use the No. 13 5x5. I am certain it would be great for the A5, but what about he small 13? Both of these are the top stapled pads, but with the leatherette covers.
