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 like to rock the party
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! )

Just using whats at hand, mostly handkerchiefs since I nearly always have one around.
Can't bother to get bookmarks since i'm always loosing 'em anyway.

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.

and I like to party.
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.

read and find out
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.

Obviously up to something
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..
