Monday Musings....on Bookmarks

Just One More Page is hosting Monday Musings and she is asking do we use bookmarks: What do you use to mark your place while reading? Do you have a definite preference? Do you use bookmarks, paper, or (gasp) turn down the pages? If you use bookmarks, do you have a favourite one?

Personally I NEVER dogear a book, I will try to remember the page number first. I like bookmarks and back in the day I had several. Now I can't seem to find them or new ones that I really like. Barnes & Noble is trying to push us to the magntic type but I want the good old fashion cardboard or plastic decorative type. When I cannot find one I generally use a biz card or something stiff I have picked up along the way. Currently I am using a freebie bookmark from the coffee bar at Barnes & Noble but really want something pretty.
What about you?


  1. I don't care for the magnets. I can't seem to control them with one hand and, I swear, they leave an impression on the page.

  2. I quite agree that the best bookmarks are pretty cardboard ones, preferably a bit smaller than the page.
    I just find your blog via "crime and mystery fiction room". Nice to meet you :)

  3. Dorte, thank you hope you will visit again.

  4. I would never dogear or write in a book either. If I don't have a bookmark handy, I use any scrap of paper I can find. I've used things like a nail file before.
