Your Makeshift Bookmarks (3)

Your Makeshift Bookmarks is derived from two things: a) my obvious blog name and tendency to use inane objects to mark my pages. And b) Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner's inspiration (and suggestion!) to start a blog feature where you all can show off the awesome, random crap you use for bookmarks.

I am so, so excited to have Anna from Anna Reads on my blog today. Anna is one of the bloggers I've been lucky enough to meet in real life and I can honestly say I love her to pieces. She is EVEN MORE FANTASTIC in real life. But I'm also cringing just a little bit. Or a lotta bit. Is it because I'm jealous that Anna is such a great person and I wish I could live up to a fraction of her badassness? Well, I am all of these things, but that's not the reason I'm cringing. You may just have to see it for yourself and see if you cringe just a bit as well.


jalsdjfl;asjdfljOAUwr0uq98tjGIJsd. DID YOU SEE IT?! DID YOU!? I know you did. I totally forgive you though, Anna, because you are one of my favorites ;) And thank you so much for taking the time to vlog it up for me. If you don't know Anna, you need to know her right now in order for anything else good to happen in your life.

ANNAREADS.COM. Go! Go! Go!

  4. I'm guilty of this. I can admit it. I use a bookmarkish thing to hold my place and dog ear the bottoms of pages I want to remember. Should we form a support group?

  6. I dog ear some of my books too! The only bookmarks I use are the ones they slip into the bookclub books. Mostly I use receipts and gum wrappers etc.

  10. I seriously love this feature! :)

    And I totally do not earmark pages. I love my pages to be perfect so I use little sticky tab thingies to mark good parts. :)
