Musing Mondays: Bookmarks

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about bookmarks…What do you use to mark your place while reading? Do you have a definite preference? Do you use bookmarks, paper, or (gasp) turn down the pages? If you use bookmarks, do you have a favourite one?

My response: Yes, I always use something to mark my pages. It may not be a regular bookmark, but I NEVER turn down the corner of a page! That's a big no-no! Although I do have many bookmarks, most times I use business cards. At my job (General Contractors office) I come in contact with a lot of people and they're always handing me their business cards. So I never have a shortage of them. I even use my own. I read during my lunch hour, so if I lose my bookmark, I just grab one of mine from its holder on my desk.

Am I picky about what I use? No, but lately I've been using a BookMooch card. I swapped a book awhile back and inside the package was a stack of these cards. They're plastic so they don't bend and they look really cool. Whenever I'm reading in a public place, someone always picks up the card and makes a comment about it. I guess you could say its my favorite.

What's your favorite bookmark? To read more responses to today's musing, go to Just One More Page or click here.


  1. One of my favorite bookmarks is a baseball game ticket. We went to a minor league game in Maine while on vacation and had a great time. It's such a nice reminder of a fun day. It's laminated so it doesn't lose it's shape.

  2. Oooh, now I really want to know what a book mooch is... although I already have a terribly feeling that I might already be one and not know it;)

  3. I don't have a favorite one, I have many all over the house so one is always at my fingertips.

  4. I forgot about business cards, and BookMooch cards, specifically!

  5. Business cards. Good idea. We have a jillion of them. I probably should go through and find the neatest ones and use those.

  6. I mainly use several bookmarks friends made in a bookmark exchange. I do have a few others I like to use. I have a few of the bookmooch cards and that is a great idea to use them. I saw on the bookmooch site that they've made bookmarks with the same design so maybe we will end up with one or two from a mooch.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
