Fall Into Reading: Challenge Question 4

Once again, Callapidder Days is posting a challenge question to help us learn more about the other participants in the challenge.

Do you ever dog-ear the corners of book pages to mark your spot? Or are you a faithful bookmark user, refusing to damage the pages of your books? OR do you have another way to keep track of where you are in a book?

Well, I guess that depends. I don’t dog-ear or damage the pages of fiction books, however, I to dog-ear, highlight, and generally abuse all school books and my ‘reading’ Bible. I know that may sound odd, but, especially when trying to remember grammar rules, calc procedures, ordinance caveats, and the like I guess I figure that the books will be much more useful if I’m able to use them and refer to them quickly.
In my fiction books – I use old school pics of the kids as my book marks (I even use them as my screensavers on my Nookie). It makes me smile as soon as I open the book

What about you?

  1. I highlighted my text books while in college so can understand the reasoning for that. What a great idea for bookmarks!!! I do have a picture of my 2 sons and their gfs as the background on my laptop.

  2. I do not dog ear pages to mark my spot. But I will occasionally dog ear a page to mark a favorite passage or quote or what not. Isn't that weird? I guess I don't like permanent marks for random purposes, but meaningful ones are ok?

    To mark my place in a book I either memorize the page number or use anything flat as a bookmark–receipt, gum wrapper, tissue, scrap of paper, ribbon, etc. and even sometimes use an actual bookmark! LOL! Right now there is an iTunes gift card marking my page in my current read. ^_^

  3. CMash – I ADORE my bookmarks!!

    Christine – I did the same for bookmarks until I realized how many pics I had laying around that I wasn't using. I especially like to leave them in my fav books & it's like a special treat when I come back to that book.
