|A genius way to make cheap and colourful bookmarks: paint chips!|
(Plus, people who dog-ear the page? HORRENDOUS SHUDDER. I could never bear to defile my books that way.)
This means I need a variety of bookmarks. And when all the hardcover-sized ones are "checked out", I'm forced to use smaller, skinnier ones for big books. So I end up improvising bookmarks.
I start out with perfectly normal bookmarks like those pictured above. But then I start grabbing for whatever's proportionate, firm and available:
Yes. That's two make-up adverts, a thank you card and a sticker sheet. I've also used postcards and expired bus passes. Hey, if it's made out of card stock, I'll use it. But only with the appropriately-sized book, of course.
What about you? Do you use bookmarks? And if so, do you discriminate? :P
