Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday asks – What items have you ever used as a bookmark? What is the most unusual item you’ve ever used or seen used?

I have one favorite bookmark that I use pretty much all the time. If I’m reading more than one book, the slip of paper from the library and, on a plane, my boarding pass. I’ve also used the receipt from the bookstore on occasion. I have a stack of bookmarks sitting on the bookshelf that I somehow accumulated over the years so I have plenty to go around if needed.

I don’t dogear. Never have, never will. I would never ever consider putting a book down open to hold my place. That’s just mean! I usually remove slip covers if I can but I’ve once or twice used it as a bookmark when nothing else was handy.

Honestly, I can’t say what I’ve seen other people use as bookmarks. My face is usually buried in a book and I don’t come up for air long enough to notice what others do sometimes.

What about you?

  1. I agree–I would never, ever dogear a book.

    But I have been known to use whatever is lying around–stray receipts, post-it notes, advertisements I’ve received in the mail… whatever is handy and won’t harm my book.

  2. I also never dog-ear or put a book face down, but I do admit to using the dust jacket as a bookmark when I have no other option (and, okay, even sometimes when I do have other options).

  3. I don’t dogear. Never have, never will. I would never ever consider putting a book down open to hold my place. That’s just mean!

    Agree!!! If a friend of mine borrow my book i always remind them not to do so too or I would be pissed off and never lend them again

  4. I have a favorite bookmark I’ve used for years – a Harry Potter bookmark that’s been so loved that it’s cracked and needed to be taped several times. I can’t part with it. One day it’s just going to disintegrate…
