How Do You Read and a Bookmark Giveaway!

Scroll Down to the Bottom of the Post for Giveaway

I got three more books in the mail yesterday that I ordered from Amazon and when I sat down to read the big hard cover I started taking the dust jacket off like I always do. I started wondering if I am the only one who does this when reading a hard back book. I know some people use the dust jacket edges as book marks but for me it's easier just to use a regular book mark and take the cover off until I am done reading.

Another thing, how many people still dog ear pages in books? I have a huge selection of bookmarks that I use, some of them have been autographed by the authors and some are just cute as heck. I do not like to dog ear the pages in my books, heck if I can help it I don't even like to break the spine in the book I am reading. Yes, I realize I am strange. lol But it can be done. lol

Do you read a few books in the same genre before switching to another genre? I do this all the time and for the longest time I have been reading Paranormal Romance because I just can't get enough of the Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Wizards, Shifters, Demons, Ghosts ect. There is such a huge selection of great Paranormal Romance out there right now and I have several calling my name from my TBR pile.

This Giveaway is for U.S. Residents only, sorry.

Just leave me a comment on this post with your email address so I can contact you and I will send anyone that posts a comment here 2 Bookmarks from my huge stash of booksmarks. How easy is that! Giveaway will run until august 20th.


  1. I would love to win some bookmarks! I am always dog earrring the pages of my books. maybe if I had more bookmarks I wouldn't keep doing that ahahaha

  2. I always use bookmarks, I like you, try not to even break the spine, I hate when people write in thier book, why would anyone do that.

  3. What genre books do you guys read? Let me know and I'll try to see if I have bookmarks in that genre. I'll be contacting you when the contest is over.

  4. I'm reading more ebooks now, which means I don't need a bookmark. I read a book the other day, and my bookmark must have dropped on the floor. Half an hour later I got up to do something, and my bookmark was in confetti sized pieces all over the floor. Puppy had grabbed it and used it as a toy!
