Fun and Collectable Bookmarks History of the Bookmark

“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.” -Ray Bradbury


My Bookmark Obsession


I have a weird obsession with bookmarks. I know I am strange. When I finish a book, I leave the bookmark in it. That way, if I have any doubts if I already read a book, there is my proof. And believe it or not, they bring back memories. I opened a book the other day and found a Pinky and the Brain bookmark. I loved Pinky and the Brain! That was a better find than the old Ameritech bill from 1994 that I found in Stephen King’s Insomnia.


Pinky and the Brain Bookmark History of the Bookmark

I hate using scrap paper for bookmarks. It may not bother some people, but it does me. It is a pet peeve. I paid all that money for a book; I could fork over a few dollars for a bookmark too. The problem now is, I cannot find any bookmarks anywhere. Where I live there is one small bookstore that seems to cater to people who love romance. I hate romance books! And the closest Half Price Books is 45 minutes away.


If you are interested in learning about the history of the bookmark, I have added an old article I wrote for another website to the bottom of this post. Check it out if you want to learn a little more about the bookmark.

My Awesome Bookmark Find

Since things are weird since the Coronavirus breakout, we have not traveled up to our favorite bookstore. So, I have been out of good bookmarks for a while. I have dug through drawers and even made my own. Then I got the bright idea to order some online. What a crazy idea, right. Hahaha!


eBay was my first thought, so I searched, and people want a fortune for a simple bookmark. Then I searched Amazon. After some more searching, I found a company you could buy them in bulk. But who wants that many of the same bookmark? The next place was Etsy. If you are looking for some bookmarks, this is the place to go.


I found the perfect bookmarks. At least I think they are. And they are extremely affordable.



Here is the link if you are interested. They have everything from Disney, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Looney Tunes, Wizard of Oz, Marvel Universe, to Star Wars.
