I’ve written many times how much I love a good bookmark, and more specifically a good bookmark which doesn’t harm or damage the binding or pages of a book. See: book darts and page markers. There are other options, too, of course, including ribbon bookmarks. Ribbons lie flat, so they won’t do any damage to your book while keeping track of where you are in your reading.
Ribbon bookmarks come in such a wide variety of styles, but two basic ones stand out: there are those with charms that hang outside the book and those without charms. I’ve included a wide range here, including both ribbon bookmarks with charms and charm-free ribbon bookmarks.
Treat yourself. Imagine how pretty these would look stuck inside a shelf full of books waiting to be read.
