Your Makeshift Bookmarks (9)

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.

And by the way, if you're interested in recording a vlog or doing a photo post for YOUR makeshift bookmarks, shoot me an email at makeshiftbookmark at gmail dot com and I'll be glad to feature you <3 You don't have to be a blogger, this is open to readers, too!

Today, I'm so happy to feature one of my favorite bloggers. Jacinda is one half of the duo that make up The Reading Housewives of Indiana. And she's extra special, because not only are we blogger friends, but we actually have known each other since kindergarten and even graduated high school together. Luckily, after like 7 years, we reunited on GoodReads and then started our blogs a couple months apart :) She also happens to be HILARIOUS, as evidenced by the following.



Okay, does anyone else do that with their Nook? Because I think it's second nature as a bookworm. I've usually caught myself prior to actually closing the cover, but still. Also, Jacinda, you totally make me want to go back to high school so we can have Bosco stick Thursdays again. And that stuffed crust pizza? YES, PLEASE.

Thank you so much, Jacinda, for stopping by and sharing all your non-bookmark bookmarks. Are you guys completely sold on her? She's awesome and funny and has a sister who is JUST as awesome. Head over to The Reading Housewives of Indiana and follow follow follow!

  2. Aww! I don't have a cover like that for my Nook so that doesn't happen, but bookmarking is definitely a habit so it's understandable! But a pull-up?? That's TOO funny! :o) I love this feature!

    PS - I remember bosco sticks from college.. do want now!

  8. I've not bookmarked my kindle, (probably because I don't have it in a case) but I do reach up to the corner once in a while to turn the page :)
