Jen at Crazy for Books has restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another. The hop is currently traveling about the blogosphere and is being hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them. A complete explanation of the history and the rules of the Hop can be found here.
This week Jen asks: What bookmarker are you currently using?
I have a pile of bookmarks that I use, with no particular preference for any of them. The most numerous bookmark in the pile is the bookmark given out by the Book Mooch website. I have several of those, and as a result I probably use them more often than other bookmarks, but they are not my favorite.
My favorite bookmarks are those that have resulted from my book collecting. I collect books, and I'm usually looking for older books,many of which are not even in print any more. So I spend a lot of time hunting for books at library book sales, used book stores, and sometimes garage sales. And people leave bookmarks, and many other things, inside used books. I've found all kinds of odd things in used books, often old pictures, grocery lists, half finished letters, and the like. And bookmarks. Lots of bookmarks. Usually they are from some used book store in a distant state that has probably gone out of business. And I save them all and keep them in a pile on my desk. I love using these bookmarks, partially because I got them almost by accident, but mostly because they have a story behind them that I don't know, and will never know.
