pros and cons of different types of bookmarks

LET’S GET INTO BOOKMARKS (plus me showing off my ‘impressive’ collection)

Paper bookmarks:

PROS- simply adorable. easy to make. cheapish.

CONS- get wrinkled and warped. (I mean you can laminate them but then it’s ruined too) You can leave them in books and forget about them SO FAST (but you also get ones OTHER people leave so there’s a plus)


The Raven Cycle one I found in Six of Crows. The polariod is me on eighties night (I dressed up 1880s because almost everyone there is #toxic so I did what I wanted) I made the Doctor Who/Yoda one and laminated it (ew but at least it’s better than printer paper) and the Snape one is from one of my favorite fanart artists (she does Harry Potter, B99, and Six of Crows art) She hasn’t posted anything recently but you HAVE to see her art like RN because it’s HILARIOUS! (Perhaps A Rat) And the others I got from the library. (I actually have two of Newt because he’s that adorable)

Magnetic bookmarks:

PROS- so cute! easy to take care of. Stay in books.

CONS- expensiveeeeee. Heavier/bigger ones can rip the pages. Also can be lost. (I lost a hufflepuff one in Crooked Kingdom so sad)


As you can see they are ADORABLE and I have a McGonagall one which is one of my favorites. I also have a DARK MARK one which is also one of my FAVES ahhhh. But the Ravenclaw ones near the top are from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. My friend got them for me for my birthday. They’re super cute but also heavy and tore one of my (library book) pages. So, y’know, expensive isn’t always more. But I usually use the paper/magnet character ones which I got at target for about five dollars. (my friend has made broomsticks for hers and it’s adorable)


PROS- you don’t lose it. you can always find your place even when you don’t have a bookmark

CONS- ruins the pages.

I only do this in old library books.

Random utensils:

PROS- you can use literally anything that fits between the pages (pencil, cheeto, tea bag, etc)

CONS- the book can become RUINED. RUINED! (especially is the tea bag is used or the cheeto becomes smashed)

Library receipt:

PROS- it doesn’t matter if it gets crumpled or ruined because it’s ugly.

CONS- ugly. UGLY. UGLY. UGGGGGLLLAAAYY. Also if you leave it in a library book people can see everything you checked out which can be embarrassing. And if you check out 35+ books at a time they become way too long to keep in a book.

    Anything is a bookmark if you try hard enough!
    Although not everything should be used as a bookmark; example: those twitter posts.
    Amazing post! Yes, magnetic ones are super expensive and i am way too scared to damage pretty paper ones

    My friend gave me a whole bunch of bookmarks from her 21st party, so I use that. But if the book I’m reading is my own – then I’ll dogear it. But otherwise, I definitely use library receipts though 😂 can confirm about the cat – I sometimes manage to fit an open book under my sleeping cat and he’s such a good cat he stays there until I come back 👌🏻👌🏻
