Aloha Friday: Bookmark or crease?





My Question:

Do you use a bookmark when reading or do you just crease the page to mark your spot?

******************************************
I will hurt you if you hurt the book. That is all. 


Ok. Seriously I rather use anything as a bookmark than crease a page.


Have a wonderful weekend! Aloha!

  5. I use a bookmark but by bookmark I really do mean anything - scrap paper, tissue, or real bookmark. The sad thing is I have a ton of bookmarks but they never seem to be near the books I'm reading.

  6. Bookmark, bookmark! Please don't hurt me because I don't hurt books! LOL. :0)

    Happy Aloha Friday on Saturday!

  7. Sorry, I do crease the corners of my own books. If there is a passage I want to refer to, I've even been known to underline it...gasp!

  8. I've been given some very nice bookmarks over the years, including an overpriced Coach one. I can't keep up with them though so I'm guilty of folding corners, even in library books. Go ahead and flog me!

  9. I am a creaser! : ) I usually have a bookmark in the book somewhere but I still crease. Isn't that weird?

  10. I use scraps of paper, those sticky tab things, or I just keep the book open on that page if I think I'll be coming right back to it (but I usually don't so there are a lot of open books and magazines in my house!).

  11. If it's a library book or someone else's book, I use something as a bookmark. Usually a post-in note. If it's my own book and it's a nice one, I'll use a bookmark or nothing, just find my place. If it's a cheap paperback novel, I'll go ahead and crease the page.

    Books are meant to be read and enjoyed, however that may be. :)

  14. I always use a bookmark-which is often just a scrap of paper or a card-although I do have some cute real book marks. But I can not stand to see a page damaged.

    Thanks for stopping by. I also like lots of different kinds of music but check out In Christ Alone and Revelation Song if you have not heard them. THey are both worshipful and you will love them.

    Blessings for a glorious Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  15. I use a book mark. Usually just a piece of ripped off paper from something else.

  16. I have a bad habit of curling the corner of the page while I read. Not good! It's a quirk I've had since I was little, though.

    Happy SITS Sharefest!

  17. I try to use a bookmark or any piece of paper that is handy, but if I'm in bed and there is nothing handy (because I always loose the bookmark) I will fold a little corner of the page.

  18. Bookmark! I've even gone on splurges to both buy and make many bookmarks at times to always have some handy.

    You crease my pages, I'll never loan you a book again.

    And for my father-in-law? Don't you DARE write a frigging shopping list in one of our books ever again!!! EVER!!!! Am I perfectly clear on this???
