books aren’t just what we do, they’re who we are

What do you use as a bookmark?

As an avid reader, I have quite the collection of bookmarks, including a beautiful Charles Rennie Macintosh metal one, like this. But I usually just use whatever piece of paper I have handy, like a drink receipt from a poolside cocktail in Mexico, or a train ticket. I think the only thing I consistently do in terms of bookmarks is with my travel guides, where I try to keep all my paper mementos from a vacation within the pages of my guidebook. I have books bursting on Prague, Ireland, New Orleans, and more.
I’ve never used money, but that’s just me. Turns out some people have, or used other valuable items. What’s your favorite bookmark, or the best bookmark you ever found in a used book?
