bookmark of the week

Bookmarks seem to be getting harder and harder to come by unless they are some sort of short-term merchandising campaign. I have shared the delights of the Beatrix Potter range but on a trip to a mainstream bookshop today was disappointed to see the same along with some other film tie-ins to promote the latest Harry Potter effort.

The bookmark as an actual page marker serves a very useful purpose and it’s a great shame that bookshops don’t sell a range starting from the very basic up to these expensive promotional items. Without even a torn corner of a ticket to mark my progress I would be lost reading most books.

I love this description of bookmarks as "starting from the very basic." I am trying to imagine what would constitute an advanced bookmark...
