I love that I can read my bible without the mess that ink makes. They don't bleed through the pages. They are great! I did not realize that "dry highlighters" meant they were a cross between coloring pencils and crayons but I am VERY pleased with the results! The colors are light and bright making it easy to read through and easy to find what I am looking for when flipping through the pages. However, they do tend to slide back into the holder if I don't click them out far enough (about an inch), but that is not really a problem.
