    I do have a nice magnet clippy Very Hungry Caterpillar one that I use sometimes though I generally use train tickets. I travel a fair bit with work and trend to read on the train, so I tend to have them to hand.

    I dog-ear, or just keep the book open to that page, face down. All my books are well loved, aka wretchedly abused.

    All you dog-earing people make me sad. I bet you write in your books too. BOOK ABUSERS.

    I like long rectangular bookmarks that I can use to move along while I'm reading. It helps concentration when I'm in that "read the same sentence 10 times over" state. If I don't have a bookmark like that, closest piece of scrap paper does the trick.

    I don't need a bookmark. I just remember my place.

    Signature by rubah. I think.

    If it is not memorizing the page number or the chapter, then it is usually the receipt or whatever scrap of paper I can find. Sometimes a pencil if it is for schoolwork and I am note taking. Otherwise, my Kobo takes care of things.

    What? I don't use it on library books, as those belong to everyone. If they are books I bought myself, who cares? Honestly, I read books so fast, and re-read them so much, I usually have to buy new copies for covers falling off.

    I never use anything specific but I do use some kind of bookmark, whatever's closest to where I'm sitting when I'm reading. I always look at the page I'm at before I put the bookmark in there, but I always do use a bookmark. When I was much younger I'd fold the corner of the page and use that as a bookmark. xD Never liked it cause I don't like ruining books like that, but I was lazy like that at times. >:D I stopped doing that years ago though~

    As a side note I'd like to add that, by far, I much prefer reading actual books than reading them digitally, and I always will. <3

    It is okay, I realize you are not the only book abuser here. Poor books used and abused then replaced...*sniffles*
