Weekly Geeks 2009-17: Mark It Down

This week's Weekly Geek Challenge is to talk about bookmarks of which I have many. I often collect them almost without thinking, and friends and family know that I love them. If I give a book away I will put a bookmark in the book, and I love souvenir book marks.

And then there are the special ones like the metal one in the foreground sent to me by a dear friend in New York. The silk one on the right says JORDAN and my daughter brought it back for me recently.

The red leather one reminds me of a visit to WINDSOR CASTLE many years ago, and the small metal one at the top came from China with my sister in law.

I'm rarely at a loss for a book mark as you can imagine, but then I might use a shopping receipt, a post card, a torn envelope. I have been known to use a feather, a leaf, a bus ticket, even a paper clip, but I NEVER dog-ear the page of the book.

You have a lovely collection! I especially like the butterfly and the one with the "a book is a present..." quote. So true :D

Nice collection Kerrie. I've misplaced my camera so can't photograph mine right now :(

Kerrie said...

Many of the bookmarks carry memories. Although I must admit the ones that are for books rarely tempt me to read or even look for a book.

Kerrie said...

Losing/misplacing your camera sounds like a mini-crisis Bernadette. At least it would be for me.

What a fine exhibition.
You remind me that I should collect some of mine and post about them.

Your souvenir bookmarks are great! I wish I did that when I used to go places. Now I'm stuck where I am, after we had kids. Lol.
