Booking Through Thursday - Mark the Spot

This weeks Booking Through Thursday was suggested by Tammy and asks:


What items have you ever used as a bookmark? What is the most unusual item you’ve ever used or seen used?


I have two lovely bookmarks that my son and daughter made me when they were young which I use most of the time, however, over the years I have used many different items as bookmarks, such as shopping receipts, price tags off clothing, envelopes and drinking straws.

I buy a lot of secondhand books and it is not unusual to find items which have been left inside books such as tickets and photos. When I find photograph it makes me wonder who these people are and what their lives have been like. It makes me a little sad that I can't return the photographs to their owners. My best find ever was $10, which I can only assume was being used as a bookmark and that find definitely covered the price of the book!

I love finding photos in books. Or cards or letters. But I agree it is a little sad.

Wow, that's pretty cool! Maybe I need to start investing in used books. I know my wallet would apppreciate it. :)

Hi

Great information in this post and it makes me a little sad that I can't return the photographs to their owners.
