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?
