Top Ten Tuesday [2]

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together!

This week's topic: Favorite Bookmarks

I don't know if it's obvious based on the name of my blog, but I do dog-ear most of my books! Whenever I get a new bookmark, it usually finds a permanent home in whatever book I'm currently reading. For this TTT, I had to flip through dozens of books to see what fell out!

  1. I have no idea where the Keep Calm and Read On bookmark came from, but the tassel made it easy to find!
  2. The magnetic unicorn is part of a set gifted to me by the lovely Karen from For What It's Worth. I'm currently using a grumpy cat with a unicorn horn in my copy of Sapphire Flames by Ilona Andrews. I started it earlier and it's fantastic! 
  3. This is a quote from V.E. Schwab's A Darker Shade of Magic series, and it was gifted to me by my #otspsecretsister, whom I fondly refer to as my White Rabbit. 
  4. Yep. That's a thank-you card! I really liked the image of the ice cream on the front, so it sadly never fulfilled it's purpose as a card. However, it does make a delicious, hungry-making bookmark. I always feel happy when I look at it!
  5. The final bookmark came with my copy of Graveminder by Melissa Marr. I've always liked how unique it is! I think it's supposed to be a body tag, or whatever those things are called. Toe tag?
Well, those were the only bookmarks I could find! I'm sure there are others, but I love the idea of randomly stumbling across them in the future.

    1. Are you really a doctor? If you are, that's awesome. If you're not, I feel like that makes your bookmark even more amazing, haha. ;)

  3. Caticorn for the win! My daughter bought me a few magnetic bookmarks similar to that one. My favorite is the baby sloth on the mama sloth's back.

    1. Hah! I had no idea it was called a caticorn. I have a llamacorn/llamicorn plant holder that I absolutely adore. <3 I love the sound of the sloth bookmark! I think I have a narwhal and something else... the kids started using them, so there's no telling where they are! ;)

    1. I really wish I knew where it came from! A bookish event maybe? I think I got it in Austin when JLA did her event a year or two ago. Hmm.

  7. That Grumpy Cat unicorn bookmark is just too stinking cute! That toe tag bookmark is so unique, though! That's really cool that it came with that book.

    Here's my TTT post.

    1. Haha! I'm sure the grumpy caticorn would disagree. ;) It does bring me joy whenever I open a book and see his frowning, magical face. <3 As for the toe tag, there's interesting information printed on both sides! I think the picture's too small to see clearly, but someone really nailed the details.

  8. I have bookmarks all over. I finally made a box that I keep most of them in, but still. I like that your books kind of hold on to the bookmarks. LOL Love the V.E. Schwab one, and the toe tag! That is unique.

    1. I used to store bookmarks in an old shoebox, but eventually gave them away in giveaways. I never used them, so I thought other people might show them some more love! Now I wish I'd held on to a few, but I know I wouldn't have used them. I tend to lose them after awhile! ;)

  9. I have a huge bookmark collection. Some are signed. I think I have about 2000 of them at this point. Most of them are in a box to keep them safe but I have a few floating around out where I can find them.

    1. Wow! That's an impressive bookmark stash, Mary. I have a few signed bookmarks, but they stay in whatever books they belong to.

  10. I have several magnetic bookmarks and love them. It’s like, where have you been all my life? Why did it take so long for someone to come up with those? :)

    1. Yes! They don't fall out when my children take off running with one of my books, haha. However, once they actually see the bookmark, they're little fingers cannot resist taking it for themselves. <3

  11. I have a lot of beautiful bookmarks, but I usually end up using a post-it note, or a tissue. 😂

    I love the magnetic Grumpy Cat unicorn! 💜

    1. I'll use whatever's around when I need to put a book down, but dog-earing saves time and paper. ;)

  12. Those bookmarks look so cool! My favourite bookmark is the one that I CAN FIND. Lol. I could never seem to find one.

    1. Just dog-ear them like me! Then you'll always be able to find what you need. ;)

  13. My move to the almighty Kindle means that physical bookmarks are obsolete for me, although I did pick up a few at RARE19 for those lovely paperbacks that I got signed. ;-)

    1. I prefer physical copies to ebooks! There's just something about holding a book in your hand and smelling the pages... ahh. It's bliss. ;) I use the Kindle app on my iPad for ARCs, but that's about it.
