bookmark of the week


I popped into my local library yesterday and they were giving away bookmarks to promote a campaign to promote books that are all linked to the theme of food and cooking. most of the time the bookmarks in the library promote local council services and are a world away from the sorts of things that are on offer in American libraries that are designed to encourage reading. This one came from a library in Wheaton, in the suburbs of Chicago.

Hi Simon,

I was just directed to your blog, and I am enjoying it immensely. I'd like to add it to our list of Bookmark Sites on BiblioBuffet, a books-and-reading web site I run. One of our columns (co-written by Laine Farley, Frank X. Roberts and myself) is about bookmarks and is entitled "On Marking Books." Thanks for this interesting blog.
