Musing Mondays - Bookmarks

What do you use to mark your place while reading? Do you have a definite preference? Do you use bookmarks, paper, or (gasp) turn down the pages? If you use bookmarks, do you have a favourite one?

Right now I'm using a book mark from that a sender sent with his books. It's pink and has his user name on the back of it. Normally though, I use book marks that I get from my Romantic Times magazine. I have a stock pile of them in my book shelf next to the bed. I don't always use them though, sometimes it's just a piece of paper, or the day from the calendar that needed ripped off at work if I opened that morning.

Sometimes I use the same bookmark for multiple books, but a lot of times my bookmarks end up getting dropped in the bathtub. I've only ever dropped a book once, but often the book mark will fall out of it's place and into the tub. It's always a sad site.

I like to give out book marks to my friends though. I pick all the 'hot' guys from the RT Mag and give them away, or if I see one that describes a book I think they'll like I pass it along.

I also use bookmarks from my local UBS which is quite handy because if I decide I want a book ordered on a whim, I have the number right there.

I sometimes see pretty bookmarks in Barnes and Noble that I would love to have, but ::sigh:: I often find that the money is better spent on books themselves.


  1. Yes, it probably makes more sense to spend the money on the books. Especially since bookmarks are getting so expensive lately. Fortunately, I've accumulated so many over the years, I'll probably never need to buy another one! They do make nice gifts, though.

  2. With the tub reading, you might be better off with a thin plastic bookmark!

  3. Nobs: You'd think so wouldn't you! LOL. And, are you reading Firmin currently?? I just recently read and reviewed it.
