Most of the times I cringe when someone folds the corner of a page as a book mark but sometimes,  I do it myself. I want to do it,  even when there are a dozen things around me,  easily accessible that I can use as a book mark but I don’t. Instead I hold the page between two fingers and twist it into a flap, wanting to mark it more than temporarily, Wanting to dent it the way it dented me.

  1. I do it. I mark passes. I live in books when they are good. The books on my shelves that do not look well-loved, well-lived in were probably not that engaging.

  2. I hate to see any markings in my books! But I like the last line of your post! It gives me a reason as to why I should bookmark pages by folding them! 🙂
