One of the adorable bookmarks my sister-in-law got me for Christmas! It's part of a four pack! I thought this one was fitting for The Stand!

I have a huge collection of bookmarks (as I‘m sure most of us have 😉). Here are a few of my favorites, many which were gifts from thoughtful Litsy friends.

I change my bookmark each time I start a new book. Coming across these ones always makes me smile.

I was shopping for bookmarks online today and I stumbled upon this one. I am now a bit obsessed with it and realized I have never thought to name my bookmarks!!

If you were to name your bookmarks, what names would you give to them? Would their names be based upon the type of books you read? Would they be named after favorite characters? Please let me know!!!

Bookworm54 What an interesting idea! I have a bookmark with my own name on that was made for me, but to pick out names for them? :O I guess it would have to be favourite characters for me. But I am bad at choosing favourites. Good job I have a lot of bookmarks! 3y
AsYouWish @Bookworm54 I have lots with my name on them too and a few with my Litsy name that I have received in swaps, but when I saw this bookmark I fell in love with the idea of bookmarks having their own names and maybe even personalities. I currently rotate between three bookmarks, but I don‘t necessarily pick one over the other for certain books, it is just the one I grab first that gets to be my bookmark for that book. 3y

I bounce between a True Neutral and a Chaotic Good. How about you all?

Butterfinger Chaotic good, true neutral, and lawful evil for me. 4y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Also, using another book (or an e-reader) as a bookmark - true neutral? 🤔 😂👍 4y
ljuliel I‘d guess I‘m the lawful neutral ? Since I read mostly ebooks ? 4y
rockpools Chaotic good, lawful neutral, true neutral and lawful evil. The person that read my last library book was definitely chaotic evil - Such Huge Dog-Ears!! 4y

Free bookmarks! Any fans of manga/graphic novels? I got these 5 but I am not a fan. I would like to pass these on to someone who is interested. Don‘t want them to end up in recycling 😔 Will mail ASAP. Just drop an emoji in the comments and I will pick 🎃

Feel free to repost or tag any Litten that you think might be interested. If I have multiple names, will do a random draw on Friday, Oct 11.

@LibrarianRyan I sent my swap package today!

@BookNAround your were my match! I know its supposed to be secret but i sent your package(s) by Amazon and didnt want u to open it accidentally! #bookmarkswap

Macker11 I have seen packages with books, is that what most people do with the bookmarks ? 4y
BookNAround Thanks for letting me know. I'll try to be good! ;-) 4y
LibrarianRyan @Macker11 It's not necessary. Some do especially if they get matched with a long time friend, or with someone who was a swap partner another time. Do not feel it is necessary because it is not. I am sending 6 bmswaps, and yes one is a package, but it's a bit of a make up package. The rest are just envelopes. 4y

Macker11 @LibrarianRyan great! Would love to keep doing this and get to know everyone ! Thank you for this opportunity 4y
LibrarianRyan @Macker11 You are welcome. Standard swaps can get expensive, so this one is a nice simple way to dip your toes. Saying that, I now know why no one has hosted this one twice in a row. Its easy for the participants, but this was a little bit more background work then i am used to. Thats not a complaint, I swear. If you are ever curious about a swap just ask. There are bad partners (for which there are 2 black lists), and well as bad hosts. 4y
S3V3N I thought we were to send them August 15th?? 4y

LibrarianRyan @BeaG opening day is Aug 15. Some will arrive late because of late shipping. 4y
LibrarianRyan @rather_be_reading I have access to one list though it wasn‘t started by me. I think only 3 or 4 people have access to that one. It‘s not very detailed. @avanders is one of the people who maintains the other. 4y

Good news! Alice was discharged from the hospital this afternoon. We spent part of the morning and our local library, less than a mile from the hospital. After perusing the cooking magazines, I discovered this magazine, which is new to me. Lots of book reviews, so a number of new books added to my TBR 😄
