Comments

  1. Those are very cool. Right now I am using a paper bookmark, but it is personal and means a lot to me.

  2. How beautiful!

  3. Does it work for ebooks?

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

      Sure. What do you think the handy hook is for? Fits right over the top of your e-reader. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Jim Tucker says:

    I’m using a narrow, laminated place-keeper with Tolkien’s Maxim about the Nine Rings of Power. Attached to one end by a tasseled string is a replica of the One Ring, complete with inscription.

  5. Hi over here!
    Nothing more exciting than having another awesome bookmark! Someday I will enter in the Guinness ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. I use a metal dart as a bookmark.

  7. Elizabeth Richards says:

    For bookmarks I am using:
    1. one of those annoying things that fall out of magazines
    2. a catalog that happened to be in the bathroom when I needed to stop reading
    3. eyeballing the place where the pages go from wrinkled to pristine

  8. I’ve got a beautiful die-cut metal bookmark styled after Hokusai’s famous The Great Wave of Kanagawa that my brother bought me on my birthday from Portland’s Japanese Gardens.

  9. Crimson Knight says:

    Usually I just dog-ear my pages (bad, I know!). Needless to say, this nifty bookmark would definitely come in handy. ^^ Thank you for the giveaway opportunity. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Yay! Bookmarks! I’m always on the lookout for special items like that to grace the pages of the books special enough to make it into my physical library. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. When she was 9, my daughter made one for me in school. Ten years on, I still use that.

  12. I use random paper bookmarks I find on my room.

  13. I usually don’t use a bookmark and then I forget where I am in the book, haha.

  14. I think I have used just about everything I own as a bookmark from time to time. The list includes supermarket receipts (of course!), random paper scraps, “Post-its”, business cards, soft toys (a little plump for the job), empty crisp packets (alas, nasty grease marks), dollar bills (I am so flash), toilet paper (urgh, I know, right..), and occasionally stray pieces of my body (if I fell asleep desperately trying to read to the end of a nail-biter). It is shocking what occasionally falls out of a book that got left hanging years previously, once I pay those pages a second call. “Oh, that is where that went!”. I have several copies of Strunk and White, because it is too close to “handy bookmark size”, and so has occasionally been lost that way. My favorite is a large red bookmark with the legend “Keep Calm and Carry On” (a reminder of my country of origin, and sound advice for all writers). Thanks for the awesome giveaway, and all other terrific nuggets of creative gold that spring from western Nebraska with such regularity. Keep storming it!

  15. I love metal artwork. That’s a beautiful bookmark ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. I have a large collection of bookmarks: book related ones, cute ones, floral ones, you name it. I have some embroidered ones, and home-made ones from the kids that are special. But I also use library receipts in my library books to remind me when they’re due back. I use strips of colored paper that I can scribble notes on. I use anything I can lay my hands on. You simply cannot have too many bookmarks. Especially when reading 4-5 books at once as I often do.

  17. Ooh, lovely! I often use a Post-It folded in half to conceal the sticky part. This is a bit fancier. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. My bookmark is super cute….it is a grocery receipt…haha!

  19. It’s such a sad thing — I use a plain strip of printer paper. ๐Ÿ˜‰
