Weekly Geek #11

For this week's edition of Weekly Geeks, I'd like to focus on one of the most useful tools for a bibliophile: Bookmarks.

Do you use bookmarks or just grab whatever is handy to mark your page? Do you collect lots of different bookmarks or do you have a favorite one that you use exclusively? If you're not someone who uses bookmarks on a regular basis, have you ever used anything odd to mark your place?

If you make your own bookmarks or have a bookmark collection, please feel free to share some pictures with the rest of us.

I used to have a collection of bookmarks as a child but I've lost most of them. When I go to Dad's I'll have to see if any are left.
I have 2 bookmarks I keep in my bag.
As you can see they are well used! I was just thinking the other day I need to get some more. I tend to lose them so I don't like to spend money on them. I've also been known to use plane ticket stubs and magazine subscription cards.
Tai got this one as a wedding gift. It's his and I never use it. I don't want to lose it. I'm glad he got a proper bookmark though. He used tissues before that!
Perhaps I should order some of these from ChicBoutiqueJewelry. I like how simple but colorful!
What about you? Do you use bookmarks? Or do you just fold the corner down (which I have done before)?


  1. I am a random scrap of paper book marker. I'll usually use the receipt after buying a book or failing that some other piece of junk mail.

    I'm also an avid re-reader so I always leave the bookmark in the book so when I do pick it up I'm ready to go. So the few real book marks I've owned are currently stashed away in some random book on our shelves.

  2. I love bookmarks! Sometimes I even try to match the bookmark to the book (by topic or style...weird, I know).

  3. magazine subscription offers are my favorite. My mom and I trade a lot of books and her favorite bookmark are airline tickets, so it is walsys fun to open up a book after a few years and find a ticket to where ever!


Shiny! I love comments.
