How Do You Mark the Pages in the Book You Are Reading?

I just love this idea! Monica is a little tied down since she just had some surgery so she came up with this idea that on March 15, she is hosting a "Honor the Bookmark Day" over at her blog. Be sure to visit her and sign up for this super great experience! She will have some giveaways (books, book marks, etc) so join in the fun! Sign up closes on March 10.

All of this brings me to the question...how do you mark the page in the book you are reading? For me, it's usually a piece of junk mail, a post it note, or a dollar bill. I can't stand to dog ear pages! I've heard of some interesting book marks just by visiting over at Monica's but I'm curious what my readers use. Mark away!!!

  1. Normally I use dog ears, but I bought a really cute bookmark at Barnes N Noble that has been being used lately

  2. I use pretty much anything to mark my place in a book, it's usally a book mark though and never dog ears.

    I have an award for you!

  3. I usually bookmark my book. Sometimes if I don't have any bookmarks around I'll use anything I have that works. I also sometimes memorize the page number but that's only if I'm desperate, LOL.

  4. I really admire this, I mean it really looks interesting! I'm actually glad to see all this stuff,Thanks for convey this.

    I use post-it notes. I have all different sizes and colors. Different size to mark what I want to remember, different color for questions and who I want to remember. Then I have the bigger ones I write on that stay in the front cover to help remind me and prep for the reviews. As a marker for the page I am on I use a book mark that is metal for hard covers and the paper covers I use a magnetic one that stays in place around the spine of the book. But I really don't like to fold my pages.

    I love reading how people mark their books. Great topic.

    Yep, mine are usually bits of stray paper, receipts, that sort of thing. Sometimes pens. Anything to keep the place :) I used to be a dog-earer (eeesh!), but I can't bring myself to do those sorts of things anymore.
