When people ask me why I have a love of bookmarks, they usually have a fairly sceptical look on their face. Maybe they wish they hadn't actually asked the question but alas, for them it is too late.
I am not very keen on the practice of turning over the corner of the page to make your place. In fact, I think it is deplorable and is defacing the book. Most of the books that I read are from the local council library and there is nothing I like more than getting lost there for a few hours.
However! There is nothing as special as opening the cover on a brand new book from the bookshop or just unwrapped as a loving gift. For me, that book will be treated with great care so that the next reader can have that "opened for the first time" feeling.
Hence my love of bookmarks. In my time, I have used just about anything - tissues, knitting needles, old envelopes, bills that could have just magically disappeared into the pages of the book. Maybe? I hve tried it but it has never happened.
My range of bookmarks is expanding and I am excited by the interested. The most popular are my butterflies, that hover above the book. They are very pretty.
Next in the line of favourites are the "Hello Kittys." They are so cute and quite delicate and popular amongst young girls.
My latest arrival are the "Happy Men." They are just a little bit cheeky. What do you think?
