Hey, everybody! Congratulations, we’re almost halfway there. Right about now you might be needing a break, and so you’ll set aside whatever you’re reading at the moment. What better time to think of how to mark your place?
You have two options for your challenge this hour. 1) is to create a bookmark to stick in that book and take a picture of it. This can be paper-folding, illustrating, whatever you like! You could theme it to your book, or just make something pretty (or funny, like the one above). Handmade bookmarks are a great chance to be creative!
Or, if you’d prefer, 2) tell us about what you like to use as bookmarks and why. For example: Mia is marking her current book of choice with one free bookmark advertising Christopher Moore’s Fluke that she got free from Barnes & Noble years ago, and one business card for an alterations place here in town; she frequently marks books with receipts, scraps of paper, and sometimes even other books (how meta).
After you’ve photographed your bookmark or thought about your bookmarking choices, make a post on your blog and link back to it here–or simply leave a comment. We’ll randomly pick a winner at Hour 13 to get a book of their choice (worth up to $10) from the Book Depository. Now get marking!
