Readers Essentials: Bookmarks






Every reader in the whole world should own at least one bookmark, it is a vital essential to any readers bookcase, even if it is an old scrap of paper.

Without these wonderful things it would be nearly impossible to read a book - excluding people with a photographic memory.
I have a bad habit of 'collecting' things just because I like the look of something, and lets just say I have a lot and I mean a lot of random 'crap' lying around, but with bookmarks I can buy as many as I like because I like to change my bookmark every time I read a new book.

So over the years more and more have added to my collection and I wanted to show off my collection, yes I mean show off, I love my bookmarks just as much as I love my books.












My cat Darcy wanted to join in on the photo shoot so here is a quick snap of her when she was behaving and actually looking sweet for all of 5 minutes.



I couldn't tell you a number because I have no idea how many I have, but I am always on the look out for new ones, I suppose collecting bookmarks is sort of my way of collecting art.

My favourite type of bookmarks are the magnetic kind just as I find these don't lose your page, whereas others can easily slip out.

Do you like bookmarks? If so what are your favourites?
Have you also got any of the bookmarks I own?

Also if you know of anywhere that do bookmarks that you can suggest to me I would be more than grateful.

  1. What a lovely post :)
    I used to read a lot, now life just got in the way and I don't read as much
    Before I used to collect bookmarks too, I loved having different types!
    I had one similar to that Little Miss Giggle one
    And I want that Gruffalo one too!
    By the way, your cat looks really cute :)

    1. You collect rubbers that's cool, I wouldn't have any use for a rubber collection but it would be a cool collection because there are so many different types! The butterfly one is lovely, doesn't stay in very well though.

  11. Your collection of bookmarks is impressive, dear, I had no idea that there is something like "magnetic" bookmarks, I have to try this out, because they sounds really useful :) What's more, Darcy is really photogenic (and cute);)

  12. I wish I read more, because when I was younger that was my favorite thing to buy. I think I liked the bookmarks more than the book itself haha!

  19. I can never find a bookmark when I want one but these are so pretty and colourful! It's inspired me to go and buy some card and make my own! Maybe I'll blog my finished designs :)
