Bookmarks, Book Lunches & Heirs of Chicagoland!
I love participating in weekly bookish memes, answering questions and making lists, but sometimes the answers are not enough to make a decent post... On their own!
So, on those weeks, I'll be combining rather than skipping!
The meme graphics below link back to the hosts with the weekly topics if you'd like to join!
This week's topic is... Favourite Bookmarks.
Funny thing about bookmarks?
You need to read physical books for them to be relevant and I rarely read print books anymore.
I'm a 10% audio, 85% ebook kind of gal.
Yes, that remaining 5% would be print books but you can see my problem when it comes to answering this question? I don't really need bookmarks.
Anyway, when I do read a physical book, I will use anything as a bookmark:
Bits of paper
The dust jacket on a hardback
The corner of the book. (Yes, I dog ear pages and I'm not sorry.)
Sometimes, I use an actual bookmark.
I actually surprise myself by owning a bookmark... It's a metal bookmark that looks like a sleeping cat and it clips onto the corner of your page to hold place but I can never find that thing when I actually need it. It's pretty though and brings joy.
So, what about you? Do you still need bookmarks? And what do you use if you do?
I'm back reading The Chicagoland Vampire's series as my "read a series in a month" challenge and it's making me all excited for the Heirs of Chicagoland books!
Wicked Hour (book 2 in the series) releases in December so I'll have two of them to read once I catch up with the predecessor series!
If you've read this series, tell me what you think!
Do you think that overall work morale would be improved by having a "book lunch", sponsored by the company, at least once a month, or perhaps once a week? (Participation would be voluntary.)
In a word, no.
Not everyone is a book lover or reader so why should a company sponsor this? Surely there are better things - that would benefit more people - for a company to sponsor?
I also fail to see how lunch were a bunch of people sit around not interacting can bolster morale. And worse! What if you're reading and people DO talk to you?!
So, no. Just... No.
