I greatly respect your reverence for books and your gentle treatment of
them; however, I am afraid I cannot quite equal your level of care.
Dog ears - I do not fold pages, nor does my lord. (P'raps in a catalog or
magazine, but never, never in a book!)
Bookmarks - It really depends on how long I am going to be away from the
book, and its condition. If I'm getting up to get a drink, I'll set the
book down open, unless it's very fragile or valuable. A paperback novel
might well be left this way awhile. Else, I'll use a scrap of whatever
paper is handy - receipts, torn corners of paper, advertising leaflets,
even (clean) bathroom tissue. Once again, if the book is to be left
unattended for a short period (say, while I eat dinner - if I'm not reading
even then....) I might use a pen or other object, but not for a long duration.
I do like someone else's idea of remembering the page number, but if I am
interrupted frequently in reading, it is annoying to have to remember just
which page number to remember.....
