Booking Through Thursday-Mark The Spot


What items have you ever used as a bookmark? What is the most unusual item you’ve ever used or seen used?

I'd love to have a large collection (or any collection really) of bookmarks to pick and choose from whenever I start a new book, but unfortunately, I don't. I do possess a couple but the only one I use regularly is one my daughter made me. It's just so much easier to grab the first bit of paper available, usually receipts, and use that! Laziness and disorganisation really, maybe that's something I ought to remedy and fulfill my desire to have lots of pretty bookmarks and actually use them! I'll keep you posted on that one!

And I've never used anything unusual, or even seen anyone else using anything unusual. I think I might keep a look out now though to see what I can spot. What other people use as bookmarks is not something I'm nosy about. Much more interested in what they're actually reading. And for completely useless information, my current books are marked with a train ticket, my daughters homemade bookmark, and the information leaflet from a packet of painkillers. It's almost a bit of an insight into what I was doing when I started each book!

I like your insight. :O) I, too, will use anything around.

I'm the same way. I always look at what other people are reading but never notice the bookmarks. I'll have to pay more attention too.

I use anything that I can find at that moment!

Booking through Thursdays: Spot on!

The painkiller leaflet...perhaps you could use that one to help you get through books you aren't enjoying so much? ;) I too never use anything to unusual, though...mostly whatever is flat and won't hurt the book.

I'm super nosy about what people are reading as well. I definitely think you should fulfill your wish to collect bookmarks. Here's my mark!

I'm interested in what others are reading also, especially on planes for some reason. I will actually ask a stranger then what they are reading.

If I find that I am missing a note, receipt, bill or other item usually it is in my current book.

Yeah, my books are "marked" similarly : train tickets, flight tickets, a post-it reminder, etc.

I do have a few lovely bookmarks though, including a gorgeous one from Switzerland, which is puffy and has a massive cow that peeks out of the top of the book. I love it.
