Bookmarks Past and Present
It’s not often I read a book in one sitting, and finding a bookmark is often a necessity that leaves me in a bit of a flummox. I try to keep one consistent bookmark, yet that seem to evaporate. My current favorite is a ticket from a vacation spent in Seattle. I have attached good memories to the stub and combined with a good read it’s a double pleasure. I’ve managed to keep hold of it since summer. It might just be a record.
Bookmarks come and gone:
- paper scraps:
- pens, pencils
- odd bits: flashlights, calculators, television remotes
Then there are the bookmarks that are actually bookmarks. The MEPA has provided the niftiest magnetic bookmarks. The library seems to collect them more than I–they have reminded me more than once that I have left them once again in a book returned to them.
What about your bookmarks? Any oddities or favorites to share?
