Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to 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.
This week Billy asks: Do you use bookmarks? If so, do you match them to the book you're reading or do you use random scraps of paper?
I have accumulated a pile of bookmarks over the years. I have bookmarks from conventions, bookmarks from bookstores, bookmarks from authors, bookmarks for books or book series, bookmarks from web sites, bookmarks from game companies, and even bookmarks from academic programs. I keep a stack next to my desk and when I start a new book, I grab one and use it. Afterwards, I either use it for the next book or just throw it back in the pile to wait until I pull it out again at some point in the future.
Right now the stack has bookmarks from the series The Ameron Chronicles, The Brazen Serpent Chronicles, and The Taker Trilogy, the authors Gilles Decruyenaere and Wilkie Martin, the books Far Orbit and Writers of the Future: Volume 30, the game Menace from Beyond, the websites Book Depository and BookMooch, bookstores Indy Reads Books and Borders, the CapClave convention, the George Mason Law Library and the Association of Writers & Writing Programs. I probably have a few others scattered about the house somewhere, but that's what is in the pile right now.
