No no no.
Not puppies. I’m talking about books.
It’s the things that make librarians and teachers cringe.
But I can’t help myself. I’m a flapper.
After every section I read I turn down a corner to mark my place.
Yes, yes, I know it is detrimental to the book. But it is MY book. And I like to use it as a guide, to mark my spot and see how far I have come. A milestone (or timeline of sorts) of my journey through the pages.
Each flip marks a section in which I had to return to real life. Some crisis or another like sleep, work, etc. Those pesky things that ruin our reading.
I like to read with no distractions. Very difficult these days. But, I read when I can. And when I need to stop.
Yes, yes of course I have bookmarks! I love bookmarks, I collect bookmarks. But bookmarks are fallible. A book cascading from a sleepy hand to the floor and bam! Your place is lost. And much fumbling and searching ensues.
With dog ears, you can simply find your last point and move forward. It cuts out the chance of peeking too far ahead and ruining everything!
Why would you want to hide them in a book?
