[Book Ferret] Bookmarks

The Book Ferret  is a weekly feature on Violin in a Void that will showcase a cool or interesting book-related find every Thursday. Notable new releases, great bookshops, events, cover art, websites, gadgets and accessories – anything to make bookworms happy.

If you want to join in, grab the Ferret pic, link it and your post back here, and add your name and URL to the comments.
Topic of the week: BOOKMARKS.


I love bookmarks. I usually have more than one, which I alternately use them depending on my mood =) Currently I have 3, I have no idea where the others go (I’m such a clumsy person, I tend to lose them after a while).



Left: This is supposed to be a key-chain but nobody says I cannot use it as a bookmark, right? (Though, I think I should have taken the ring off)

Centre: My parents went to Istanbul and all they got me was this really nice bookmark. Reminds me of Aladdin’s magic carpet

Right: A free bookmark received from a local bookstore. The design is simple and it bears this quote: “Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.”  [Kathleen Norris].

So true!

Thanks for Book Ferreting PlayingLibrarian! Added you to my RSS feed :)

Keychain - psh,if it works, why not? I've used thin books as bookmarks in thick books (although this tends to happen when I'm falling asleep and am too lazy to get anything else).

I like the carpet one too! Cloth bookmarks are cool - they don't get creased in your bag.

Oh, meant to add that bookmarks aren't the topic of the week - there are no topics, you can blog about any book-related find you like :)

Heh, I kind of like that one with the ring.

Hi! You know what, your post was the one that gave me the idea to post about those monster bookmarks on my blog :D

I think you should keep the ring on the first bookmark, it would always remind you it's supposed to be a keychain, but used in books, it would have a really cool marker :D

Brush Up On Your Reading
Nina: We should try to make one of those monster bookmarks. I don't know how's mine gonna turn up, though. I have no artistic eye at all!

Yes, I think I'll keep the ring on =)

We should! I'm thinking of using ARGH as my monster. I don't think you need to be artistic to make a monster... You just need your playful groove on :D

And it's amazing we bought the same book! We could compare reviews :D I've got a huge TBR pile so I'm not sure about doing a review before you, though.

Brush Up On Your Reading
Hi! Found you through Follow Friday - I hope you're having an awesome weekend. I'm definitely following your blog for more, and I love that blog design - it's adorable!

Those bookmarks are neat too! I have many, but they're ugly ones. :(

Best Wishes,
