Musing Mondays - Bookmarks

Musing Mondays is hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page

What do you use to mark your place while reading? Do you have a definite preference? Do you use bookmarks, paper, or (gasp) turn down the pages? If you use bookmarks, do you have a favorite one?

I have never had one bookmark option that I go to every time. I am a marker of convenience. I will use whatever is handy most of the time because I will put a book down when I am falling asleep and can't hold it up for one more second. I always try using index cards so I can mark down pages or quotes I really like on the card while I am reading. But I am rarely good at remembering to buy more when I run out.

When I started reading Twilight I was in the car on the way home for Christmas and the only thing handy was an extra Dunkin Donuts napkin so I used that for the whole series. I also regularly use the slip of paper the library gives me with the due dates on them.

Well, for Christmas one of my dear friends gave me a really pretty book mark that I love and I am making an effort to use regularly. It has a Confucius quote that I love and really do try and follow. "Wherever you go, go with all your heart." I also really love the little fish charms.

So how do you mark your page?

I love the new blog look!!

I use bookmarks, but I've been known to tear off a piece of a napkin or whatever is close by!

I use index cards or notepad paper for my nonfiction books but haven't tried it for my fiction.

Oh...I gave you an award over at my blog!
