Ten bookmarks (or bookmark substitutes)

How do you mark your place in a book? I'm a sucker for bookmarks and buy 'proper' ones all the time - but when it comes down to it, and I have to stop reading in order to sleep, eat or actually start work, they're never to hand.

So I use all sorts of flat(ish) things:



And because I then normally leave my within-reach bookmark to live within the book, it almost becomes part of the book, tied into my memory of when I read it and what else was going on at the time.

How do you mark your place? Do you dog-ear?

  1. I try to remember the page number, but it never works, unless I'm reading on my Kindle, it seems to have a better memory than I do. Mostly I use bookmarks, finding one when the forgetting of page numbers gets too annoying. I'm also a sucker for buying bookmarks, there are so many nice ones.
    I never dog-ear...shudder....
