Different people have different ways of bookmarking. Back in the old days in my country there were no bookmarks, so the best way to pick up the book at exactly where you left off was to fold the tab of page, or just leave it open and put something heavy beneath. Later we got the little ribbons attached the binds of some hardcovers, so the act of bookmarking was way easier. Some teenagers hated it, though, and they used business cards instead. I remember one of my girls going to a lot gift shops so she would have a bunch of cards to bookmark each book.
Now we do have bookmarks, various kinds for all ages. For kids they are the ruler bookmarks. They're super duper cute. They're soft, colorful and have many shapes - the animals, the stationaries, the cartoon characters. They even have color your self ones, those that allow the kids to personalize their bookmarks by coloring the pictures as they wish.
For teenagers the most popular are quote bookmarks. They're made of many material: paper, plastic, steel and the quotes vary too. I got this silver bookmark from a really close which is really nice. It says "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you've always imagined,". Also the trend of making bookmarks developed these days so we all have a few handmade ones. It was fun making these and comparing with others'!
Well, I know you all are wondering what I'm babbling about in this post. Honestly, I just want to emphasize the importance of bookmarks because they play such a great role in reading. They make the books look cooler, and of course, they're useful too. I bet we all love them. So if you have a free minute, care to leave a comment and tell me how your habit of bookmarking change throughout the years and your favorite kind of bookmarks?
