Books and Bookmarks:
Do you use #bookmarks, fold the corner of the page down, or mark your place in a book another way? . . .
Do share. I’d love to find out!
I actually use post it notes, so I can write on them, too. I used to collect bookmarks, so I haven’t got many new ones lately. But now I’m wanting more. I’m discovering that not only do I love collecting them again, but they’re great for Instagram photos! Like the photo above.
P.S. I’m not sure if anyone remembers this but me, but in the old days of book blogging, authors used to send me bookmarks just because I collected them. I wonder now if things have changed a little where bookmarks are concerned, because of ebooks…

I use book marks, scraps of paper, post its….whatever is handy. I never lay an open book face down or fold the pages. Big no no!
I never fold the pages down either… I just can’t even think of doing such a thing!! The horror of it all.
I have one bookmark I use religiously but I love bookmarks and keep them.in the books on my shelves. I rarely get sent them by authors though, that’s definitely died off.
Years ago, (and I mean more than 3 decades), when I was just discovering the joys of reading, I used to lay books open or dog ear the pages, but then I learned what a sin it was to the books, so ever since I have used book marks. I too, love collecting them. : )
Hi! I nearly used the espression ‘dog ear’ but wasn’t sure if that would be widely understood – or if it was just a Brit thing… 😀
Thanks for dropping by!
LOL– I know what you mean…. I know the meaning but do a lot of other Yanks? I can’t say. : )
You must be up early!
Today I am! : )
I’ll usually use some kind of bookmark. At the library I’ve found some pretty interesting things used as book marks from old lottery tickets (no winners) to strips of bacon (gross)!
