It seems like more and more people are switching over to e-readers these days rather than using actual books, but for those of us who still love holding the book in our hands, we know the value of finding awesome bookmarks for books.
Using a bookmark for books
There is something about holding a book in your hands and getting to smell that book smell as you read.
I love that smell, but even more than the smell I love finding the perfect bookmarks for books.
I recall when I was little going to the bookstore with my grandma and getting to pick out a new book and a new bookmark. I have acquired quite the collection over the years!
Bookmarks for books are even more special to me now that she is gone. As I open the book I am reminded of the many adventures I went on without leaving my home thanks to my grandma.
Since then, I have started creating my own bookmarks to use for my books as well as to give to others. I love making bookmarks so that others can share in the joy of marking their spot in a good book.
We have some awesome Free bookmarks for you to use to mark your spot in a good book.
The most important thing about using free bookmarks you find online is sending them to get them printed at a high-quality printing company so they are on quality material and the colors are vibrant for you to enjoy for years to come!
Why is it Important to Use a Bookmark?
There are so many reasons why you should use a bookmark when reading.
Find your place in the book faster
Bookmarks are perfect especially when you are one who loves reading multiple books at one time or if you can’t pick up your book as often as you would like to.
Bookmarks help you keep track of where you are if you are reading multiple books at once or if you find yourself being interrupted time and time again.
College students love bookmarking multiple important pages in textbooks to help them find important facts easily to review or study.
Saves the binding of the book
When using a bookmark you are not placing the book face down opened to the page you are on. When you do this you are putting force on the binding on the book which will cause damage.
Best etiquette when borrowing a book
No one wants to borrow a book from the library and see that the corner of the pages have been Dogeared because someone did not use a bookmark. That is why it is important to use a bookmark! Helps keep your book etiquette in check.
Adds some personality
Bookmarks are a great way to express yourself or your mood.
It is really interesting to find bookmarks in books I haven’t picked up for a while and see the bookmark I chose at the time.
I am instantly reminded of exactly where I was at in my life as to why I chose that bookmark.
Bookmarks to me are like shoes, you can’t have too many!
