Do you match bookmarks to the book? I’m a little weird about that. Sometimes I can’t start the book until I have the right bookmark. Think about it, you’re all ready to read that Lovecraft story but the only bookmark you can find has happy puppies. It throws me off. Now, use the dragon bookmark or maybe the Poe quote, boom! We’re in the mood! I especially like using the Sherlock bookmarks in the Sherlock books. Or the pretty handcrafted paper bookmark in a story about ancient Japan. Friends and family have given me bookmarks, I’ve made my share, plus they make excellent souvenirs too. They are a little like tiny memories every time I open the book.
I know that sounds a little weird. I can’t be the only one who does this. And doesn’t everyone have a favorite one? Mine are the Poe stamp (that I can’t find) and the stitched ones. How about you?
