I read books. Therefore, I have bookmarks. Once upon a time, I would usually misplace or lose most of them but that hasn’t happened lately. Does this mean my mind is getting smarter as I get older? That’s very unlikely, but I’ve currently got four bookmarks in the book I’m reading now. That’s right. I let them accumulate all in one book.
I’m currently reading P.J. O’Rourke’s “The Baby Boom.” It’s actually quite good. This book was a birthday gift from my son and his girlfriend. It came with a bookmark inside it—one from Joseph-Beth Booksellers.
The bookmark behind that just has a colorful drawing of gift-wrapped buildings—kind of odd. On the rare occasion when I’m reading two books at once, I’ll usually use this bookmark for the second book. You see, I’m a creature of habit.
Third in line is a bookmark from Wonder book and Video in Frederick, Maryland. What’s strange about this is I don’t remember ever being in Frederick, Maryland.
The last one, my fourth bookmark in my book, is from the Kenton County Public Library—Covington Branch. It was free, so I just picked one up.
If and when I get a fifth bookmark, I’ll let you know. I know you all are counting on that.
