A dirty little secret? Hardly, but it isn’t the kind of thing you share when getting acquainted with someone. I have a drawer full of bookmarks. Immediately, images of a bookish hoarder and nerd with glasses and tasseled loafers come to mind – the kind with a geeky laugh, who will swoon over a new title or a bookmark with a special backstory. Nonetheless, here I will openly confess:
I have a drawer full of bookmarks!
Being an avid reader, you need bookmarks. You don’t dog ear books. And in my opinion, you should choose a specific bookmark for each book you read. I don’t color coordinate, but the style of book and bookmark should complement each other.
Bookmarks are wonderful keepsakes. I often buy them as souvenirs when I travel and I was so fortunate to get one from my son on my very first mother’s day. I have free bookmarks picked up at book stores and libraries. I have inexpensive ones with nice pictures. I have treasured ones that are “finds”.
Photos will follow.
