I was cleaning my bookshelves recently, and came across a couple of bookmarks I thought I’d lost, and a few others I had forgotten about entirely.
Two, handmade bookmarks from when I was obsessively watching Doctor Who, and a package of magnetic page clips from my first trip to the UK. I picked the Notting Hill Gate and Westminster clips for the photo, because those are the stations were I misjudged the timing of the closing doors, and ended up with a bruise on each arm for my trouble- right arm at Westminster, and left arm at Notting Hill Gate.
My favorite used bookshop gives you a bookmark with every purchase. I usually either leave them in the book they came in, or put them in the bookmark cup with the rest of their kin, but I’ll still find them in unexpected places.
