Show Me Your Bookmarks Contest!

I mentioned in the meme on Sunday that I have a multitude of bookmarks but forget to use them. I wasn't kidding. Here they all are. Actually, that is not all of them! I found a few more after I took the picture. I love bookmarks and every one of these has a story behind them. Some came from giveaways, some are gifts from online friends from all over the world, and some I purchased on my travels. The Riviera Maya one is a favorite and a nice reminder of our trip to Mexico.

Underneath all of these is one I got for Christmas this past year from my brother-in-law. It is a collage of family pictures and on the bottom (which you can see if you click to enlarge the picture) he wrote a very nice note, "For your 100th book and the 100 more next year... Merry Christmas." What a great gift!

So, are you sentimental about your bookmarks? Do you have a collection? Any favorites?

I showed you mine now its your turn to show me yours.

  2. This is a cool idea. I don't have a variety of bookmarks so I don't think I can enter this contest, but I'll check around.

    Collecting bookmarks is sort of like collecting kitchen magnets. Fun and addictive.

  3. I don't have that big a collection of book marks. I spend all my money on books and then pick up the free ones. That is bad isn't it. If I love books, I should love bookmarks too.

  6. I have a huge collection of bookmarks. I love collecting them and I love the way they look in my books. Which is why they're all unfortunately stuck inside one book or another. I love to do this but I'd have to search through almost every book I have and take out the bookmarks. Maybe I'll take a page out of Juliann's book and just take out my favs. Fun challenge! :D

  10. I love this contest! I've posted about my bookmarks, mentioning the contest of course, here: http://agignac.blogspot.com/2009/04/bookmarks.html

    and I'm also following you, but not because of the contest, just because this is the first I've seen of your blog and I think it's really neat. :)

  11. I love my bookmarks! What a fun contest. You have a quite a large collection. Sadly I can't find all of mine but my favorites were easy to find and photograph. I am a follower and have blogged about the contest here:

  12. I have one beautiful bookmark that an ex girlfriend gave to me. It's metal (gold colored) with a pretty red ribbon and with a little metal tab at the end of the ribbon. It's heavy enough to stay in the book but the metal tab at the end is both beautiful and weights the ribbon down perfectly so that it never gets in the way. It's a brilliant bookmark. When I'm not using that, I just use slips of paper or whatever else is laying around.

  14. One can never have too many bookmarks! I am already a follower and my post is here.

  15. I have dozens of bookmarks, too. I almost hate to use them because I'm afraid they will get bent up! So, most are tucked safely away.

  17. I've recently started getting bookmarks like crazy. Some of my favorite ones are Ann Aguirre's Blue Diablo bookmarks, the Twilight/Paramore bookmark I got from Hot Topic, and Nancy Haddock's La Vida Vampire bookmarks. I'll see if I can take a pic and make a post later on today.

  22. I am not at all sentimental about bookmarks. I will use whatever is handy but I do have some fun signed ones from authors that I really like. I just got a new one from Jessica Verday and i really like it.

  25. Waah, I totally forgot to do this! Not that I have that many bookmarks (at least not ones I've bought), but it's such a fun contest idea. Oh well, next time!

  26. Huh, it appears that it might not be too late to comment at least, since you're an hour behind me! I usually use little slips of paper as bookmarks, but I do have a heap of bookmarks too, mostly ones I've collected from bookstores. My favourite bookstore bookmark says "And REMEMBER... 'Ice cream, candy, children, barefeet, short hair, long hair, no hair, cats, dogs, and small dragons... are welcome here anytime.'" It's from a bookstore in Kennebunkport, Maine (called Kennebunk Book Port) that I've never been to but would love to visit some day!
