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.
