Book Blogger Hop - 11/3 - 11/9

 Question of the Week:

When reading a book, do you use a bookmark to mark your place in the book, or do you just fold over the top corner of the page? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)

My Answer:

Oh my goodness....I would NEVER fold over the corner of a page in a book.  :)
 
I use a bookmark.  My bookmarks consist of envelopes, bills, inserts in books from publishers, and sometimes a "real" bookmark.  :)

  2. I can't bring myself to fold corners over either, any slip of paper will do for me. Have a nice weekend!

    1. I can't believe someone would turn a page corner down in a book.

  4. Hey, hey, hey!! I'm SO happy to be back!! :) :)

    I have seen people fold over corners of book pages, and I inwardly cringe when I see that.... Bookmarks are so ubiquitous, so I really don't understand WHY any reader would fold over page corners! And, if there's no bookmark around at the moment, one can always do what you do -- use a receipt, a bill, whatever. But folding a page corner over? Just....NO.

    I'm SO glad you agree!! I think most of us book lovers do!

    You know, recently I bought a used book on eBay. When it arrived and I opened the package, I was SO disappointed to see a LOT of corners folded over.... I almost returned the book, but it was only $3.99, with free shipping. What I think I'll do, though, is to donate it to Goodwill, and buy a BRAND NEW copy. Lol.

    Thanks for your answer! Thanks as well for commenting on my BBH post!! Have a WONDERFUL weekend!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

    1. Oh my on the book having pages folded over. Donating will be a good idea.

  5. I hate folding corners too, and will find some piece of paper to use even if I can't find my bookmarks.

  6. Yes. Pretty much anything flat can be a bookmark, so why would you damage your book by folding the corners?

    Have a great weekend. - Katie

    1. Damaging a book is something I can't understand.

      I actually lent a book to a friend and her dog chewed the bottom part of the spine. I was not a happy camper.

  7. Huh... I always knew I was a book monster but flicking through this hop has made me realise how bad my 'sins' are to most bookworms! lol

    Most books are safe from my 'abuse' and 'disrespect' though as I probably read 90% of my books on my kindle. :)

      The books must be happy you read on your Kindle. LOL!!

  10. I can't fold corners of pages either...gasp! I love a good bookmark, and I have many. In a pinch any piece of paper or the jacket flap will do.

  12. I would NEVER fold over the corner!
    I sometimes use a pretty bookmark if one is handy, but usually I use whatever is handy; an ad, a receipt, a school flyer, my iPhone....

  15. I use both real bookmarks --- both digitally on the Kindle app, and real, paper ones. But when I was younger, I used to dog-ear the bottom of pages from my favorite scenes or quotes. I haven't done that in awhile, since I mostly read off my Kindle now. I also sometimes use Post-It tabs to keep track of things like that. Oh, and Goodreads! They have an excellent track record of my favorite scenes.

      Fun about your track record on Goodreads. :)

  16. LOL I am exactly like Nicola and I do totally agree with her. I know it's a bad thing folding corners in books, but it's the only way I can make sure I remember where my spot is. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog hop Elizabeth.
