20 Of The Most Creative And Clever Bookmarks For Bookworms


There is nothing like getting lost in a great book. But unless you have ample free time it’s nearly impossible to read an entire book in one sitting. Eventually someone comes along to interrupt, maybe the kids get of school, or your shift at work is soon scheduled to start, but for whatever reason you must mark your page and return to real life.

Some people fold their pages to mark their spot, while others (myself included) can’t stand to damage the pristine pages of a good book. Bookmarks are a stationary product in my life, meaning this list is about to do some damage to my bank account… I. Want. Them. All!!!

To all my fellow bookworms out there, this is for you. Get ready to go gaga over the most creative bookmarks ever!

73% of American adults said they read at least one book in the last year. 69% of adults say they read a book in print within the last month. Half of all adults read 5 books in the last year, and the other half read less than 5 books in the last year. Women are more likely to have read a book in the past month than men.

2. Bookmark Lets You Mark Your Page AND Section

Bookmarks are great at marking your page but not at marking a certain paragraph on the page. This bookmark allows you to stop reading at any point on the page, just move the pointer to your last line.
