My Makeshift Bookmarks (1)

It occurred to me that I've had several people guest post on the blog about the random crap they use for bookmarks, but I never have. And the name of my blog is Makeshift Bookmark, so this seemed wrong. Sure, I do use normal bookmarks. I've got about a billion of them, but more often than not, I grab a random object and use that. Why not show them off?

If you want to visit past posts on other people's makeshift bookmarks, please feel free to check them out. Videos aplenty!

Why This Works as a Bookmark: Let's face reality. They're inevitably going to park themselves right on top of your book if you put it down for 5 seconds, so I think that shows consideration on behalf of your animal. Lots of people think cats are self-absorbed creatures, but I think this right here proves them wrong. Plus, they're pleasing to the senses. It's a freaking cat. They're cuddly. They're fluffy. They are a stress reliever if you pet them. They're doing you a favor. Especially if it's a book that is intense and/or upsetting. Step away, pet the cat, and resume the book. You'll be thankful you did.

  2. LOVE. I wish my cats would wait until I'm taking a break to sit in my book, but alas, mine like to be right in the middle of my story. :)
