Bookmarks - Dr. Who, American Flag, Rose

by Kelly

While putting away crafty supplies, I found these bookmarks. In my life I have read thousands (tens of thousands? EEP!) of books, and over the years I've found any number of unusual bookmarks left in books from shops and estate sales - sticks of gum, coupons twenty years out of date, and once even a dollar bill folded into a tiny sailboat.

I personally have used pennies, brochures, and the common stray bit of paper, but I rarely use an actual bookmark. They are fun to make, though.

Dr. Who

Colonial Flag-those stars were a pain


How many books have you read in your lifetime? There's an interesting thread at the MobileRead forum discussing this. The one number that I found for an average was 100 books per person, but it doesn't seem to be backed up by anything.

I'll have to ask my Mom if she's ever thought about this. She's been reading every day since 1936 :)

  1. We must not be average, Kelly. I know I read at least 50 books per year. I know you, Stephanie and Dawn are avid readers also.
