The holidays are here, everyone! There will be lots of cool gifts out there for stocking stuffers or even just as small gifts from friends & loved ones. Bookmarks are a fantastic example. But as I was going through my bookmark box, I noticed a few at the bottom that, though lovely & given with good wishes, I have never used.
All three of these have top pieces that are heavier that the rest of the bookmark, meaning they tend to sink down onto pages & tear them. Especially if you are mainly a paperback reader, like me. They are lovely to display as objects on shelves or clipped to card stock or stuck upright in a plant or basket. But remaining in a book, even for a brief while? Nooooooo.
However, if you do like the weight & durability of a metal or plastic bookmark, you can still find interesting ones that are in the classic rectangular shape without any edges or corners that could catch. For example:
Ahhhh, a wonderful straightforward marker that I can put in my book without any worry about what it will do to my pages. So remember, this holiday season, go with a timeless style of bookmark so your bibliophile friends will worry less about their pages & remember more your thoughtfulness.
