Bookmarks... My Love of Place-Holdery Goodness!
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to document them for your (and my own) viewing pleasure. I was very tempted to doll these babies up and do full on GlamourShot-esque photos, because I'm a little weird like that, but then I figured that they were awesome enough on their own, and just staged them with appropriate books when available. I couldn't resist. Off we go!
So up there at the top we have the lot of them lined up on my dresser with a bunch of books that I don't have room for on my bookshelves (Book addiction at critical-mass, remember? And I just received 4 more in the mail, with another on the way... Life is good. :P).The Glamour Shots will come next, and in no particular order. :)
First, we have my Lord of the Rings bookmarks. The two with the tassels (which are Frodo & Sam with the yellow tassel and Grima Wormtongue with the black) were sent to me by my friend Kandice, and I'm 92% sure that King Theoden was sent to me by Allison @ The Allure of Books.
I was tempted to take the picture with both sets of my LOTR books, but I thought that would be a little bit TOO geeky. Even for me.
Oh, and for those observant peeps among you - this is the 2nd graphic novel that accompanies the Dark Tower series, and yes, that is Roland, hero of my Character Connection Post. Thank you for noticing. :)
Now, more observation skills are needed here... April over at Good Books and Good Wine and Sharon at Sharon Loves Books and Cats recently hosted Zombies Vs. Unicorns Week... I like to think that if you know me that I wouldn't need to advertise my preference, but I did anyway. TEAM ZOMBIE! Woo! *ahem*
Allison sent me the bookmark, because she's awesome, and Kandice sent me the book, because she too, is awesome. :D
So here we have the first book in the series with the movie tie-in bookmark. Then we have a Camp Half-Blood patch, and a pewter Camp Half-Blood keychain, which is surprisingly heavy. Good stuff!
If you haven't read these books, I recommend them highly. They are written for younger readers, around 8 or 9 I'd say, but they are brilliant books - especially if you enjoy Greek mythology.
Whew! This is getting long... I think I will stop here... and pick up with a Part 2 at a later date. This is so much bookmarkery goodness that I don't want to overwhelm anyone with awesomeness. Keep your eyes peeled for more later!
Feel free to share your own bookmark addiction with me in the comments. I love knowing what people use. Do you use just one? Do you use certain bookmarks for certain books, or for certain types of books? Are you a bookmark user at all? If not, I hope that you're not a dog-ear folder!! THE HORROR! Share your habits. Inquiring minds and all that. :)
