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.
