vAs best shown in Figure 3, one end of’the car
riermember II has been folded at one end. The
50 fold II is designed to form a clip for embrac
ing the opposite faces of the upper‘ portion of
the pages 14 of a book I! so that the slot l2
may form a guide track-I extending downward
from the upper end of the‘ book’. .
' Rotatably mounted on a'pivot ii are a plu-i

Referring to Figure 2, it will be seen that the
disks 20 and‘ I9 having the month and day
indicia make it. possible for the reader to also 55
indicate the month and day on which the par
ticular page was last left off forthe reader to
resume reading.
It is to be noted that the material of which
the carrier II is made will have an element of
rigidity or stiffness so that it will be adapted to
maintain its form while the upper members are
slid thereon. The device may be made of paper,
Celluloid, leather or metal having the necessary
It is to be noted that the entire device is hid
den inside the book when not in use.
This book indicator may have advertising mat
ter printed thereon and serve as a greeting de
15 vice which may be given away as a gift. The
device may also serve as a perpetual ‘reminder
so that the month and date indications may
serve to remind the reader of appointments
Referring to Figure 4 which shows a modi?ed
carrier 25 having an unslotted bottom layer 26
so that a pivot may be slidably mounted in the
slot 21 of the top layer 28 without contacting
the page of the book. The intact layer 26 is
26 attached in any suitable manner to the top
layer 28 and thus serves as a shield to guard
the pages of the book against damage by the
slidable pivot.
I may also modify the clip portion of the car
30 rier by providing a metallic clip 29 secured at
one end of the carrier. The clip 29 will serve to
positively grip the pages of the book.
It is to be noted that while I have shown my
book indicator in Figure 1 with the carrier in
contact with the upper margin of the pages of the
‘book, that I may reverse the indicator so that
the clip end 01', the carrier will contact the bot
tom margin oi’ the pagesor that it may contact
the side edge oi.’ the pages.
I claim:
A book indicator composed of top, intermedi
ate and bottom members, said intermediate 10
member comprising a plurality of concentric
disks each having indicia concentrically posi
tioned at the outer circumference thereof, said
bottom member forming a carrier for said disks
and comprising an elongated strip having means
at one end for engaging the opposite faces of 15
a page oi’ the book and being slotted substan
tially throughout its length, said top member
forming a pointer having a slot lengthwise there
of for viewing indicia on said disks and having
a sharp angular outer end, said disks and said 20
top and bottom members being centrally se
cured by pivot means, said top and intermediate
members being jointly slidable as a unit relative
to said carrier member due to engagement of
said pivot means with said slot in said carrier 25
member, said carrier having an intact and un
slotted bottom layer for shielding said book from
contact with said pivot.
