Good morning, fellow bookworms. We have reached Tuesday and that can only mean one thing: it is time for Top Ten Tuesday! A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, who each week assigns a new topic to inspires us to create a top ten list based on it. This week’s topic is:
Well this week is a nice easy one, as I am sure like most avid bookworms, I have a large collection of bookmarks: more then I could ever be using at one time! Here are ten of my favourites:
1. A super cute bookmark featuring little dragons with books by the artist Wayne Anderson, which I picked up in the gift soft of the Chateau de Belcastel in Aveyron, France.
2. A small, magnetised bookmark, which is the most practical and most used as it doesn’t fall out when my book is in my bag. Even better it has my name and facts about it on e.g. ‘From “Yiska” meaning “God behold”.
3. A pretty bookmark that my mum bought me, which is decorated with wax prints of faeries.
4. A sweet bookmark, again bought my mum I believe, which being thicker and with the ribbon has been perfect over the years for textbooks and now cookbooks.
5. A sentimental bookmark because it contains flowers I picked as a child, which my mum then made into this bookmark, with my name on and dated 1997.
6. Another useful bookmark which being made of flexible plastic and with the tag has been perfect over the years for textbooks and now cookbooks.
7. A sweet bookmark, my mum bought me, with a cartoon fairy standing on a pile of books with humorous fairy-inspired titles e.g. ‘Tinkering With Bells’.
8. Not a particularly pretty bookmark, but it is from Browsers Bookshop in Porthmadog, Wales, which reminds me of wonderful summer holidays in my Grandad’s caravan.
9. This little bookmark has an image of the Virgin Mary and Child, which was bought from the giftshop at Santuari de Lluc in Mallorca by my mum on holiday there.
10. Finally, a free bookmark from the Book Depository, that has a cool, fantasy-style castle on it, designed by Book Depository customer, Andrew Cooks from Australia.
Well I hoped you liked my varied collection of favourite and most used bookmarks – Making this list has highlighted to me just how many bookmarks my mum has bought me, bless her! That’s it for now, so please come back next week for another topic and list. Bye for now!
