Bookmark to Remember Last Feeling

On each sliding colored part (made of paper), you can write down your feelings you often have when reading.

The bottom half is a bar graph you can move freely. It shows what feelings you had last time in what proportion.

This is good when you restart reading a book after a long blank.

Bookshelf for Super-Lazy People #2

Thought up this idea an hour ago and quickly drew it, so I’m skipping details.
It’s actually not as simple as it looks in terms of the structure I found, so many of you will notice what I omitted, but I hope you get the concept.

While the long bookshelf moves from side to side, the handle part doesn’t. Choose a small bookshelf and pull the bar down, and it comes down on the desk.

So here you can be lazy again, take and put back the books while you’re sitting at the desk.

Bookshelves for Super-Lazy People (like me)

My desk is always messed with unfinished books and magazines that I think I’ll need soon again, which my wife is always complaining about.
These are for people who feel even bothered just to stand up from your chair, grab the mess and put it away.

This book hanger works as a bookmark, too. When you don’t need the books, just slide them under the desk and everything looks neat!

Slide a tab to the other end and a part of the floor flips up so that the book goes down to a selected shelf.

Throw books in the box and put it back in the bookshelf. Easy!

Bookmark to remember last WORD, not just page

bookmark to remember the last WORD you read, not the page

bookmark to remember the last WORD you read, not the page

I used this idea for a design competition and failed, so I’m not confident in this idea, but at least I’m sure I won’t be able to use this for another competition, so I introduce here: a bookmark that remembers the last WORD, not just the page you read last.
