Bookmarks

Something nice and gentle for you this week....... I challenge you to make a bookmark.
I have made a few which are up for swapping if you want to visit my blog and send me an email or leave a comment there. You could use a quote for inspiration; I have put some at the end of this post plus there are loads here http://www.richmond.k12.va.us/readamillion/readingquotes.htm and http://www.quotegarden.com/books.html

Or you might want to try an idea from Sarah Whitmire's Soul Journalling prompts to scan or photocopy some of your own work then cut it up and re-arrange it, as I did here......

Don't forget to visit my blog if you want to do a swap!


A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. Chinese proverb
I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. Jorge Luis Borges
No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting. Lady M. W. Montague
My home is where my books are. Ellen Thompson
You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. Paul Sweeney


And finally, two by Groucho Marx......

I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book.

Outside a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read.
