I love bookmarks. You might have guessed that from the name of my blog! I love collecting them, receiving them as presents, making them up as I go along, and hoarding them up. I have been known to use bus and plane tickets, seagull feathers, old postcards as bookmarks. I used to dog ear pages as a child. But somewhere along the way, I just stopped and switched to bookmarks instead. I have soooo many now, especially since book fairs and festivals always have so many lying around to be picked up. I’m always slightly disappointed when I’m reading a book with a built-in placer, the thread type thing. This here was a Birthday present from V this year and I think it is one of the prettiest things I ever owned. Don’t you agree?
Musing Mondays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
Describe one of your reading habits.
Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
