Do you have a favorite bookmark? Fold the corners? Have some sort of other secret technique?

I use a bookmark. I have a few, but somehow whenever I need one, I can't find it!

I have about a million bookmarks but I almost never use them unless I'm using someone elses book. If it's my book (or sometimes even a library book) I'll just fold the corner down.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."

I use the jacket until I'm too far into the book for it reach... then I use a piece of note paper.

I don't mind folding the corners on old books (like the ones I buy at value village, or used book stores. However, if it's a brand new book, like the Twilight books, the Hunger Games books, and the Harry Potters, I refuse to fold the corners and ruin the pages in any way lol so bookmark for those special books, and folded corners for previously loved books.

Sometimes I use the slip I get from the library that is a printout of all the books I borrowed, but I always forget to move it again to the last page read. Most of the time, I use nothing at all. I generally try to remember the page number and find the page without too much problem.
