    Thanks,

    It was made by a sign shop not too far from where I live, I had wanted something like it for years and no one would make it how I wanted, and then I found this small shop that claimed to make anything, and they were telling the truth.

    It wasn't cheap, but it was worth it because I will keep it forever and it is a really personnal item that only I fully understand, It also creates a lot of conversation, because every one that see's it asks about it, and then I have to explain what it all means.

    I work for a boys and girls club, and one day, as an art project, we made bookmarks, a girl in my group made one that is a drawing of me, and gave it to me. I've used that bookmark for a few years now.

    I try to use a 'proper' bookmark, where I can, but have also been known to use train tickets, chewing gum wrappers and payslips as well... (my workbag needs a good tidy out! )

    I never lend books. NEVER. I used to, and I did so quite willingly. Unfortunately I gave my first edition of Rendezvous with Rama to a friend a few years ago (Not worth money or anything, but by and far my favourite novel, and having a first edition was a thing of pride).
    Did it come back dog-eared; No (It wasn’t the actual copy I’d read, so mine weren’t even there).
    Did it come back with a split spine? No

    Did his kid forcefully run a knife down the cover several time? Yes, the ****-faced little ****er did!
    I no longer lend books.
    im sorry but this cracked me up so much im gonna take a moment to let it out
    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahah

    I just fold the corner over most of the time. my hard covers dont have their covers so cant use those. final conclusion is that folding the corners over is the greatest thing since sliced bread

    thats a good idea. i use whatever. if i have regular bookmarks they end up broken. so i started using tissues. when they still are folded neat. AND CLEAN ONES!!!

    Haven't used real bookmarks in years and years. Using a napkin at the moment.

    I am weird. I dog ear, but I am OCD about the condition I keep my books. Even my paperbacks.

    I definitely can't dog ear the pages. I too am a little ocd about that. Right now, my favorite bookmark's been one I got in Switzerland. Sadly, it's pretty torn up. I also tend to be reading a few books at a time, so any scrap of paper has been used up to and including gum wrappers.

    I have a leather bookmark for years and years. It is all that I use except once in a while when I am reading more than 1 book.

    When I have something on the nightstand, I use it as a bookmark. I'm currently using a "fun size" Peanut M&Ms wrapper (empty of course). When there is nothing unimportant on my nightstand (like only insurance bills) I opt to remember where I'm at. I'm pretty violent with my books anyways, so finding my place usually isn't too difficult (on books I own at least).

    I used to take a piece of paper, fold it, and use that as a bookmark. My friend from Thailand bought a really nice wooden bookmark for me, and I've been using that lately instead of the piece of paper.

    Generally, the receipt from the store where I bought it. Because most of my books, I buy when I've got some travelling to do which I mostly do by train. And since the receipt is usually still around somewhere when I have to get off, that turns into my bookmark. I have a really nifty magnetic bookmark as well, but I always forget where I put it. And since I have to read loads of books for uni as well, it ends up in one of those most of the time..
