Bookmark Collection!

Hey guys, so I am officially home from college for the summer. As I was unpacking and putting my things away, I came across my bookmark collection. I have over 70 bookmarks – crazy right? Who needs that many? 

I do, apparently. Honestly though, I haven't actually used bookmarks while reading since middle school! I normally just dog-ear the pages or use the dust jacket to keep my place.

Anyways, just thought I'd share a couple with you. Enjoy.

These two are probably my favorites and most used. I love polka dots.

bk11

These are all my Twilight ones. There was a stage of my life in which I fangirl'ed. Hard.

These are all ones that either have a specific memory for me or are from a certain place. The Rome and Phillip Island ones I received as souvenirs from my best friend in middle school when she used to travel a lot. We aren't close anymore, but the bookmarks remind me of what a great friendship we used to have. The one that says Princeton I got while visiting the college with my family. The other two are from Arlington, Virginia where my grandfather is buried in the war memorial cemetary. I got them while I was there for his funeral. 

One of the reasons why I like to collect bookmarks so much is because they're like little souvenirs – super cheap and easily transported too!

bk2

This one I bought at a museum field trip for school. 

 

bk9

I love bookmarks that have information, quotes, or fun facts on them. They're like little pieces of knowledge, and who doesn't love learning?

bk4

The presidents. 

 

bk8

The string type of bookmarks.

bk1

A few of my favorite animal bookmarks. The turtle and wolf ones both have information on the other side, which, as I said before, I love.

bk10

One my mom bought for me that has my name and the origin/definition of it.

Is it weird to have a bookmark collection? I'm not sure, but I don't really care either. I think they're cool and super easy to collect. I don't go out of my way to look for them – friends and family buy them for me, I buy them when I travel new places…and over time they have just accumulated. They're also a great way to preserve memories and experiences.
