Tomorrow is Bookmark Day!

bookmark dayI found out something really cool today that made me think, "Oooh, fun!" and thought I would post about it. Tomorrow, Monday 15th March, will not only be my 23rd Birthday (which I am stupidly excited about; I'm not a kid anymore but still, the idea makes me all "EEE!"), but it is also Bookmark Day over on The Bibliophilic Book Blog! Pretty awesome, huh? Check out this post and this post for more info!

Because of this, I thought I would share with you my collection of bookmarks. I don't have a huge amount compared to some, I'm guessing, but I kind of like them. So here we go - click the images for a larger view.


These are swag bookmarks.
Some won, some gifted to me by authors, one picked up at a signing.
I do have a bookmark for Magic Lost, Trouble Found too,
but it has disappeared on me.
Not in any of the places I've looked :(
I also have a Destined for an Early Grave bookmark,
but it's currently in use.


13 The Dark Devine bookmarks.
3 Bookmooch bookmarks.
3 I Heart Monster bookmarks.
2 Yasmine Galenorn bookmarks.


Some random bookmarks I have.


Bookmarks received with books from The Book Depository.


I made this Twilight bookmark!
It's not brilliant but I like it.
It's got magnets on either end on the other side,
so it slips over a page and won't fall out.


My "special" bookmarks.
The heart one was a free gift my Nan
received with some books she ordered.
The silver one was a present from my Mum and Dad;
the circle has my initials on it, JMS.


This is my Mum's lace bookmark.
Isn't it just gorgeous?

So that last one isn't exactly mine, but I had to include it. But of the ones that are mine, there are 45. Not a huge amount really?

Also, while I'm here, I want to point you in the direction of a blog I follow that I think is just wonderful! Forgotten Bookmarks is a fantastic blog which features the things used as bookmarks in books bought for a used and rare bookstore. Some of these things are as personal as letters, or beautiful postcards, or the completely random. It's such a fantastic blog, you should definitely check it out! :)


  1. They're wonderful! Thanks for sharing this. I hope you have a brilliant birthday tomorrow!
    (I love the link to Forgotten Bookmarks, too - fascinating.)

    Happy birthday!

  2. No problem! I think bookmarks can be so awesome, little works of art :) Oh, Forgotten Bookmarks is just awesome! I love the posts with letters from donkey's years ago! They're so cool!

    Thanks! My Mum is taking me to the cinema to see The Lovely Bones tomorrow, and then on Saturday I'm going down the pub with a fair amount of family :) I'm looking forward to it! :)

  3. I'm loving your Dark Diving bookmarks! Big fan of that book, so I'll have to track one down :)

    Thanks for letting us know about bookmark day!

  4. Dark Diving? Ha, yes, I can spell. *whistles*

    Oh, and hope you have a rockin' birthday!

  5. It's past twelve here now so I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you'll have a superb day, Jo :)

    Thanks for sharing your bookmarks. I haven't got all that many but I have one that I think is great. Perhaps I'll post about it when I mention bookmark day on my blog.

  6. Jenny - I've not yet read the book, but I'm looking forward to it! It sounds amazing! :) Dark Diving, brilliant! :D And thank you!

    Ladybug - Thank you! Though I have another 45 minutes over here :) Cheers!
    Cool, I look forard to seeing your bookmark! :)

  7. Happy Birthday!

    I just LOVE bookmarks. I collect them from everywhere and probably have over 150. However, there are a few I use more than others, simply because I like them more. :)

  8. Cheers! :) Oh wow, thats a whole load of bookmarks! Bookmarks are awesome, I love them!

  9. This is a really fun post! It also makes me feel a little guilty for having no bookmarks at all and folding down corners instead. I should get myself some of these.

  10. :O! You don't dog ear your books?! Sacrilege! Lol. Oh, I couldn't do that. It just seems so wrong to me. If you go to The Bibliophilic Book Blog, you can enter lots of contests to win some really pretty bookmarks! :)
