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.

Hello September, it is time for a Top Ten Tuesday post. This weeks topic is:

(i.e., a genre you don’t typically read or subject matter you’re not usually drawn to)

My list is made up of books that surprised me in a good way.

1. Gulp By Mary Roach is not something I’d usually pick up but I had heard such good things about this author I decided to give her a try. I’m glad I did. It both interested me and grossed me out. I already have Stiff in my TBR pile.

Top Ten Tuesday 4/30/19: Inspirational/Thought Provoking Book Quotes

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 “Inspirational/Thought Provoking Book Quotes”.
I love a good book quote. Memorable passages in novels tend to stop me in my tracks while I am reading. I like to re-read them before moving on. I usually highlight the quotes I like on my e-reader or *gasp* I dog ear the pages on my print copies for reference later.

I could list 100 favorites, but these are just 10 Favorite Quotes From Some of My Favorite Books

1. “He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her.” – The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

2. “There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”- The Hobbit by  J. R. R. Tolkien.
