I spent many years collecting bookmarks and sticking them in old fashioned photo albums, A lot of them were leather, followed by card, and ribbon. I tried to find unusual ones without much success. I stopped this when I got married and had a clearout but gave away a lot to charity but kept favourites for myself

When I was a kid I used to like making them, and giving them out as gifts. I especially liked making those magnetic flip ones.

I don't. I literally never use bookmarks. And yet I have so many of them. They're everywhere. Paper, cardstock, metal, ribbon... I can't escape.

Ever now and then I come across a book mark I must have, but usually I just use the ones I have gotten over the years.

Yes I have a whole bunch of bookmarks gifted by my husband and all of them are unique and specially handpicked. I just love to collect bookmarks. Bookmarks with nice messages, with minute designs, micro-art and many more...

I collected them when I was a kid, but now I just use a sticky note or a receipt. It is easier and if it gets lost I am not super upset about it.

Most of friends and family know I love to read. So bookmarks are usually a great tag along gift for my books. It shows that they have taken the time to select something that they know I will appreciate. Plus, it is fun to see the different personalities of the givers by their bookmark selection.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

I used to collect them. But I just tend to lose them. Now I just use any random piece of paper or bill I can get my hands on.

I never used to use a bookmark - I just remembered what page I was on. Now that I’m getting older, I love using my own cross-stitched bookmarks or bookmarks I’ve picked up from my travels. I find the homemade ones make awesome gifts too.

I don't collect them, but I adore them nonetheless. There really are million different ones to find, movie designs, cute animals, kaleidoscopic colors bonanza, different materials. If you can think of it, they probably somewhere have it in stock. :)
