    What kind of bookmark do you use when you read? Pictures are optional.

    Here's what I have.


    It's awesome.

    I usually either just put the book face down on the pages I last had it open or use something random I can grab that works as a bookmark.

    my bookmarks are usually random pieces of paper or pencils or things of that nature. my most recent bookmarks were plane boarding passes because i was reading on the plane

    This one is used in Day Watch that I am re-reading. Its a metal Celtic banding one that hooks over the top of the page.
    Bookmark One

    And this one is one my friend designed, its an isometric level for a game, this is actually one of his business cards. I use this one in the book about serial killers I'm reading.

    You hold my heart in your manly hands I wanna feel the throb of your handsome gland. I wanna hold you tight like a newborn kitten, against my flesh like a cashmere mitten. Tickly tick, I'm makin' skin bump heaven and all the way down it's lookin' cleanly shaven. Prickety pricks, it's stubble on stubble I better slow down or I'm in real trouble. Want you, touch you, feel you, taste you! Knick knack whacky whack 'till I see the man stew. spin you around let me see that hole! I'm a tunnelin' in a like a short hair mole. Once I'm inside I'm gonna leave a trace, half in there and half on that face! One finger, two finger, there fingers gone! Mano a mano I love you John!

    Receipts and flyers.

    How come people know I love books and read and take them anywhere and they refuse to give me a bookmark as a gift? I find this a wilful disregard of my needs.

    I've got a couple of nice ones. They're hiding in books I put down and forgot to pick up xD Sometimes I end up just smashing a book in one sitting though.

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.

    You sad bloody peasants and your paper books that have pages. My Nook is its own bookmark.

    Even back in the days of yore when I read actual books, I would often be too lazy to find something to be a bookmark, and would just remember the page number. And by "remember" I mean "glance at the page number for a fraction of a second and then forget it immediately thereafter," and so I would flip through some pages before getting back to my spot.

    :monster:

    I usually just use the receipt from when I bought the book. That's if I'm not reading the ebook version.

    Of course lately I've been bringing so many strips home (to the extent that I am running out of places to put them) that I rarely buy books anymore, but since I buy orange juice almost every day at work I still have tons of receipts.

    Just grab a random object that's lying around.

    I have 5 or so bookmarks and don't use them

    I was actually pretty good at memorising that. I'm great at remembering useless numbers. Maybe if I converted birthdays into purely numerical values I would remember them.

    Oh I do this "remembering" all the time and seems like my to-be-read-pile of books takes a lot of time before they diminish!

    In highschool which I always run out of things to insert in between the book pages, I take out a strand of my long hair. And then when I pick the book up again I'm like, "ew, hair!!! *throws*" and then I'm like "Oh no! What page did I leave it again..."

    Happy Birthday to Me

    I have never had the need for a bookmark as I can always remember the page I was on last, however I do use them for sentimental reasons if someone gave it to me. I have a small pile of them somewhere, and some of them I actually like.

    I remember making a bookmark for a school contest in the 4th grade. I ended up getting 2nd place.
