Musing Mondays

What do you use to mark your place while reading? Do you have a definite preference? Do you use bookmarks, paper, or (gasp) turn down the pages? If you use bookmarks, do you have a favorite one?

I started collecting bookmarks around 4th grade. Somewhere between college and grad school, I stopped using bookmarks and just remembered where I last read. This was actually pretty easy considering I didn't read many pleasure books during those years.

Now I currently use bookmarks. I started collecting NYC postcards and I used those for bookmarks for awhile. Recently, I started buying bookmarks from Sacchi. I prefer using bookmarks with motivational quotes written on them. I have about 15 or so and I try to use each one, however I do have my favorites:
  1. "Never, never, never quit." ~Winston Churchill
  2. "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." ~Eleanor Roosevelt
  3. "It's never too late to be what you might have been." ~George Eliot
  4. "Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible." ~Anonymous
  5. "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've always imagined." ~Henry David Thoreau


  1. I need to get some bookmarks, sounds like you have a nice collection :)

  2. thanks for the link to the pretty bookmarks. it looks like mine could have come from there even though i didn't see it on the site. It was a gift so i don't really know but it has a great confucius quote.

  3. I like those motivational ones and postcards make great bookmarks, too.

  4. Hi!
    My bookmarks are promotional ones from authors and the library. I like yours with the inspirational sayings. Have a great day!!
