I’ve been able to get in a fairly consistent routine of reading while on the subway. I finished Truman at the start of August, and just finished Perfume today. During the course of my reading, I’ve accumulated a variety of “bookmarks.”
The dog-ear is always a good one, but that quickly turned into a way to mark passages I wanted to make note of. Dog-ear the top of the page as place holder, and use the bottom corners to mark notes. Alot of dog-eared pages later and I got confused.
So enter the receipt. And also the price tag from a recent purchase, or even a business card. All these objects (is there a word for when an object is used in a way other than its intended function) got me thinking…What other objects could be used as a bookmark? receipt, business card, library card…
