How I store my bookmarks

Bookmarks are great because 1. I don’t like dog-ears  2. I cannot remember where I stopped reading last time

So, to prevent the clumsy me from losing them, I grabbed a highlighter box that was lying around my house and store the bookmarks in it:

The size is p-e-r-f-e-c-t for bookmarks

It’s thin and light so I sticked it to the side of my bookshelf using some blue tack.

 

How do you guys store your bookmarks? Or do you use them?

The Book Blogger Test Tag

Thank you covertoocover for tagging me! Their blog are awesome so go check them out!

1. What are your top three book pet hates?
a) Covers that do not match. They look weird on my bookshelf and are just not visually appealing
b) English books are always expensive in Hong Kong and the release dates are usually later than the rest of the world
c) People bending books so they can hold them easier. I hate that.

2. Describe your perfect reading spot.
I can pretty much read anywhere and I wouldn’t mind even if it’s standing in a crowded place with people buzzing around. So… no I can’t think of a perfect reading spot. Just give me a book then it’ll be fine.

3.Tell us 3 book confessions.
a) I prefer ebooks to paperbacks because paperbacks are REALLY expensive in Hong Kong (as I’ve said before) and ebooks are more environmentally friendly
b) I read multiple books simultaneously. I know I should be concentrating on one book at a time…
c) I’m into books for less than a year actually. I read the Harry Potter series when I was young but unlike the others, it didn’t get me into reading. Divergent did, and that’s how I ‘discover’ the wonderful world of dystopia.

4.When was the last time you cried during a book?
I’ve never cried during a book (call me soulless). Not even during tfios. And I’ve read it twice (double the saddness). I’m just not a crying person.

5. How many books are on your bedside table?
I don’t have a beside table… But the closest book to my bed is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

6.What is your favorite snack to eat while you’re reading?
I don’t really eat while reading. But I do read while eating lunch or something.

7. Name three books you would recommend to anyone.
a) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
b) Legend trilogy by Marie Lu
c) The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

8.Show us a picture of your favorite shelf on your bookcase.

(I put my Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix back on the shelf so you guys can see the complete series)

9.Write how much books mean to you in three words.
Not YOLO anymore

10.What is your biggest reading secret?
When I was young I liked to flip to the ending and read it before I start because I want to know what will happen. Well now I won’t do that but I did spoil myself for Allegiant.

That’s it! Hope you guys enjoy it! I’m going to tag
