Bookmarks or dogears?

If I have borrowed a book, I always use whatever I have at hand as a bookmark – usually a business card or a receipt – and I try to be as careful as possible with the pages and covers.

If it is my own book, however, I do dog-ear. I am not sure why because I always donate my books and I know other people don’t like it, but I like my favourite books to have battered spines and dogears – it shows that they are loved and used and appreciated.

What do you do?

  1. I use bookmarks in large books – both flat and “over corner” ones, while for smaller books I have plastic covers whose right side folds in to mark the place.

  2. You turn the corner of the page over … for shame 😟
    I use a piece of plain paper; if I come across an interesting passage in the book I make a note of the page number and then, when I’ve finished the book, I go back and look at those passages again. If I think that they’re really interesting I copy them into my commonplace book. I’ve been doing this for over twenty years – I’m up to 661 entries 😃

  3. I’m forever losing bookmarks! I’m sure my library and the charity shops I donate to have a huge selection of my bookmarks stashed away so now I always fold the corner of the page over! Xx
