It is no secret that we here at For Reading Addicts love a good bookmark: the quirky, the shockingly expensive, the nerdy, cute and creative. Some people even use books to store strange bits and pieces…
The interesting folk at Reddit have been discussing bookmarks in r/Showerthoughts after user by brainrokker posted the thought ‘Using a dollar bill as a bookmark is cheaper than buying a bookmark’ .
This sparked a list of things people use or have used, and some more outrageous comments… At first there were the usual comments from people who use sweet wrappers, receipts, and foreign currency left over from a trip abroad, but in amongst those were some quirkier suggestions.
For your own bookmarks- would you use a dollar bill, or any other currency? Or do you prefer something a bit more personal? Perhaps you just use whatever is nearby- a receipt, a business card, a bus ticket?
