What do you use to mark your place while reading? Do you have a definite preference? Do you use bookmarks, paper, or (gasp) turn down the pages? If you use bookmarks, do you have a favourite one?
The photo above shows my favourite bookmarks, I usually use one of these. Page turning is a 'pet' hate of mine and I try to discourage any of my family in this habit.
Over the years I have been given many bookmarks, some from bookshops and some from family and friends as part of birthday/ Christmas presents. Working from left to right, the first one is courtesy of 'Family Publications' bookshop. This is a great site , I have ordered many Catholic books from them and they guve a very efficient service.
Next along is a bookmark from the Holy Land , a friend from church brought this for me after returning from a pilgrimage.
Third from the left is a handmade bookmark from
This was part of a prize I won from this lady last May. It really is a lovely piece of work and as the stitching says I do remember her when using the bookmark.
The 'Irish Blessing' one was given to me by one of my daughters as part of a present. I do have Irish ancesters , somewhere in the distant past.
Last in the photo is one that I crosstitched myself , many years ago .
