Do you use a bookmark or doggie ear your pages?

I doggie ear the pages. I know it's not good for the pages, but I always lose my bookmarks.

  • I do both.
    I dog-ear the pages I want to go back to if there is some information I want to look up.
    I also write words on the last page of my books that I want to look up in the dictionary. I'll come across words that I don't know the meaning to, or names of people I find interesting, and write them on the last page. As soon as I get the chance, I look up meanings to the words and refer back to the dog-eared pages to re-read that section so I can better understand what was being said if I couldn't glean its understanding the first time.
    I'm an "active" reader. :)

  • Depends on the book, if it's an expensive novel I use a book mark. If it's just something that caught my eye in the grocery store it doesn't usually cost more than $4 and I have no problem folding the pages.

  • A bookmark. It must be my OCD that makes me want to keep books in perfect condition.

  • A little doggie ear. 90% of the books I read nowadays are library books. I've checked out books and found all sorts of interesting ways to mark a page.

  • I buy most books from the goodwill or yard sales. So I dog ear most, but my nice books that I actually buy at a bookstore, definitely bookmark.

  • I don't dog ear for the most part, but I don't have actual bookmarks either. I generally just use whatever's around, a piece of paper, paperclip, whatever.

  • I dog ear them, unless it's a library book. I got a Kindle for Christmas though, so I haven't read a traditional book since then (and it always remembers my page!) :)
