Juli here again. It’s my second hour with y’all and I think it’s time to talk about bookmarks!
By the way, I don’t actually think of bookmarks as quitter strips. They’re more like pausers to me. So, how do you mark the page in your books? Do you have fancy bookmarks? Handcrafted bookmarks? Origami-folded ones (yes I’ve seen those!)? Do you use the Dewey’s readathon bookmark? Or do you, gasp, fold the page and go all dog-eared on that book?
I personally do not dog-ear my books. Well, I have one exception so far. I started reading Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks a while ago and there are all these beautiful pictures of typewriters, so I marked those spots because I just love looking at them. I do have quite the collection of bookmarks as well. There is a spoon that was somehow fashioned into a bookmark, a creepy Pennywise bookmark (I so bought that when I was reading It), several magnetic ones (and oh do they come in handy), and a rubber band one that has a little hand to even indicated what line I stopped at. And yes, I basically use anything else as a bookmark as well: receipts, other scraps of paper, I even once used un uncooked spaghetti.
I can’t wait to hear all about your ways to mark a page! This co-hosting stint was really fun. Be sure to check out my blog or follow me on Twitter (@evilbibliotaph).
