    Oh I hate it when reading on the train you have a page or two to go and you get to your station... Drives me nuts. I have to get home or into work and finish the chapter...

    I used to collect bookmarks as a young girl/teenager...still have them stashed away somewhere in some box.

    I currently use one that Gabriella made me for Mothers Day last year at daycare, I would be devastated if I lost it so only use it at home.

    My DH used a bookmark until he recently lost it (our trip to Europe last year) that he has had since Yr 3 or 4 at school with his teachers comments still on it. He is 34 BTW, and now cannot bear to use another bookmark using receipts instead. Amazing the sentimental value behind a simple bookmark.

    I think I'm going to become a bookmark collector, I can see I have a new obsession. Not that I use them much, I read obsessively but always just remember where I'm up to, and very rarely use a bookmark. I hate pages being turned down too, it's sacrilege!

    Sarah, that is beautiful and devine, I love it!

    Yeah, I usually use my library receipt, or some other receipt, sometimes an old envelope... I've never had a nice bookmark! Sarah your book mark is so purrdy!!!

    I can just stop anywhere as well, I don't take much notice of chapters, I do like to finish a paragraph but thats about it...

    I have quite a few book marks, but have stopped using them since I got my Swarovski one. And so much for keeping it up high, it's always down & has been dropped a few times with no problems.

    Leash, don't you get frustrated finishing in the middle of a chapter, don't you need some sort of closure? or is that just my analness coming out?!

    I suppose it depends on the book too. I'm reading one at the moment that kind of has chapters, in that it has sections from 2003 and 2006, but within those sections are letters & stories IYKWIM. I can easily finish a letter or story in there, but wouldn't stop halfway through one.
