Happy Sunday. Wow, it’s turned so cold already. This week consisted of icy morning temps in the 20’s and a frosty car with a few warmer temps during the daytime to tease us. All that means is that Winter will soon be here.

I had a busy week with work being hectic and having to work overtime so I didn’t get too much reading done these last two weeks but I managed to finish up one book yesterday so that was good.

Top Ten Tuesday 11/12/19: Favorite Bookmarks

ttt

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 TTT topic is Favorite Bookmarks.

I have a confession to make. I sometimes dog-ear my books. I know. For shame. But not as much as I used to. I use bookmarks more often than not. Some are actual bookmarks, most are impromptu bookmarks such as paperclips, receipts and photographs because I lose and misplace my bookmarks easily. That is what I like about my e-reader, highlighting and bookmarking is so convenient.

Here is a list of things I like to use as bookmarks:

1. Actual bookmarks. My very faded and well worn old Gone With the Wind bookmark is a favorite.

2. Paperclips. I try not to do this though because they will tear the page easily.

3. Postcards. I have several postcards that I have collected and use as bookmarks.

4. Bookmarks that I crochet myself. These are easy to make and I enjoy whipping them up.

Wasn’t it just summertime? I feel like I blinked and November arrived. I took the picture above on a recent day trip, I love the Fall foliage. It has been a busy past week on and offline and I managed to get two reviews up and participate in a book blitz. I also dressed up for Halloween. Did you dress up? I shared a pic on Twitter if you want to take a peek. I was one of the Grady twins from The Shining. It was fun paying homage to my favorite writer while also freaking people out a little.
