So, this is related to reading, but not any specific book.
I have come to the conclusion that I have a bookmark goblin. A little creature that comes along and gobbles up not only my proper bookmarks, but also the stuff I use as temporary bookmarks as well!
I swear, I take whatever I’m using as a bookmark out of my book, place it down carefully, go to get it back after reading and POOF! It’s gone.
This has led to me using a good variety of things to mark my place in my books:
– Scraps of paper
– Greeting cards
– Gift vouchers
– Pens (I don’t recommend this one!)
– Sweet wrappers
– Food bags
The list could go on and on!
This is one of the things I do love about the Kindle and eBook readers, that I don’t have to worry about scrabbling round for a bookmark in the middle night when I’m done reading.
Still, I do read quite a few paperbacks, so it’s probably about time I try to find and reprimand my bookmark goblin, or invest in some GIANT-sized bookmarks that I will never be able to lose 😀
Do you have trouble finding bookmarks? Have you ever used anything unusual as a bookmark?
