For this week's edition of Weekly Geeks, I'd like to focus on one of the most useful tools for a bibliophile: Bookmarks. Do you use bookmarks or just grab whatever is handy to mark your page? Do you collect lots of different bookmarks or do you have a favorite one that you use exclusively? If you're not someone who uses bookmarks on a regular basis, have you ever used anything odd to mark your place? If you make your own bookmarks or have a bookmark collection, please feel free to share some pictures with the rest of us. Create your own post and come back to sign Mr. Linky. Please enter the direct URL to your post, not the main URL of your blog. Don't forget to visit other Weekly Geeks and see what sort of bookmarking habits they have!
I always use bookmarks. It irks me to dog ear pages. I have about twenty different book marks that I've hung up against the side of one of my book shelves, so I can never be without one. There are a few book marks I like more than others, so then I use them more than I use my others, including this blue one, with a blue beads attached that says "A room with out a book is like a body without a soul". I also have a few movie related (Harry Potter, used exclusively for my HP books) and Pirates of the Caribbean books. I'm also a sucker for cute kittens or puppies book marks.
I've never made my own, I'm not a really arts and crafts person. Mainly I grab one when I'm in the bookstore line up. (They really know how to place those spin shelves, right there in the line, knowning book lovers will sit there waiting, to check out, then notice those bookmarks. Sigh!)
