Weekend Rambling: [#1] Bookmark Love!

Welcome to my first Weekend Rambling post! This will probably the closest thing to a discussion post that I'll ever get. Hehee.. Today's topic isn't actually a discussion topic, but more of a, well, rambling. ^__^ I just want to show you guys my love for. . . (drumroll, please)

BOOKMARKS!

Eh, I consider it more of a book accessory. And besides, a girl gotta rest.
Believe it or not, I don't collect only books. I'm also a hoarder of bookmarks! Every time I go to a bookstore, I almost always buy a bookmark or two. My reading experience is not complete without it. And don't tell me I'm the only person obsessed with them because I've seen other readers with more bookmarks than I do.

I know my collection's not impressive, but aside from my books, my bookmarks are MY PRECIOUS! I don't even let anyone touch them. (Yeah, I'm crazy like that.) And now, let me show you my meager collection of bookmarks! (Sorry for the crappy photos!)


These are my store-bought lovelies! I feel like I don't buy enough so I'm planning to remedy that soon. ^__^ 

These ones I got from The Book Depository! Lovely bookmarks they have!

I also bought these bookmarks from the bookstore. They're actually smaller than the typical bookmarks but as you can see, they're very cute so who am I to resist them? Plus, they're really cheap so I bought lots. 

I don't use these because they're not as convenient to use, but I still keep them nonetheless.

And of course, I also have bookmarks sent by authors or won from giveaways! I also don't use these because I don't have the matching books, but they're pretty to look at, so yeah. ^__^

There you have it, folks! Not that impressive, I know. But I love those bookmarks and am always on the lookout for more cute and unique ones. Who's with me?
On a side note, I found this article about interesting bookmarks that any book lover would love to have. And boy, I want them all! Check them out!

I hope you enjoyed my first Weekend Rambling post, guys! I'd love to hear what you think! Do you also collect bookmarks and/or other bookish stuffs? Do tell!

    1. I also use post-it tabs to mark quotes in a book, especially if it's for review. It's where I write notes, too, on what I think about a certain part. :) Thanks, Anna!

  2. I have an absolutely ridiculous number of Book Depository bookmarks haha. Bought way too many books from them. I like using them because I don't have to worry about losing or damaging them! I can never use my signed ones because I feel like I'll lose them.

  3. I just can't seem to keep track of my bookmarks! They always seem to disappear on me :(. I've had quite a lot of them during my reading experiences though! My favourite was a Harry Potter one, but again, I lost it.

  4. I tend to collect bookmarks too. I started back in middle school when they had free bookmarks in the library. I don't use my author bookmarks though, I keep them in a scrapbook with my other book swag (postcards, etc.)

    1. I don't use them too, but I keep the signed bookmarks and other swag in a box. I just like to look at them from time to time. :)

  5. Oh, my goodness, Julie! You have the most adorable bookmarks, EVER. I just love the ones that are so cartoony, and are not square :) I need to get myself some of those! I think I'll be enticed to read even more ;)

  6. I loved your different bookmarks Julie, especially the ones in your first picture, I used to collect bookmarks all the time, but now I barely have time to grab a bookmark when reading my book. But thank you for sharing this post with us! :)

    1. Thanks, Jasprit! I can't read a book without a bookmark so I always have one or two in my bag. I don't think I'll ever get tired of collecting them. :)

  7. I love bookmarks so much!! I have a huge collection of book swag, some of which I use as bookmarks. Although I don't really use bookmarks for their purpose, I just like to stare at them :)
