What’s Your Favorite Book and Type of Bookmark?

Among the different areas in the etsy community forums is the promotions area. Promotions usually move pretty quickly. I've been trying to come up with an interesting way to promote my bookmarks. So here, as well as on etsy.com, I'm going to ask this question….

What is your type of bookmark and favorite book?

If you need help thinking of a type of bookmark here is the link to a search on etsy of bookmarks.

If you need help thinking of a book, here is the list from The New York Times Best Sellers List.

If you find this question interesting, please post a comment with your favorite book and type of bookmark. J

Hi, I'm partial to horses so this one at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_19&listing_id=14347300
And I enjoyed Skin by Ted Dekker. I love your bookmarks. Especially the orange one with the semi precious stones. Have a great day!

Oh, that is a really neat bookmark. Isn't it amazing how some people can draw so realistically! I know I used to draw horses when I was young, but none of mine ever looked like that! I've never read Ted Dekker. I'm partial to Anne McCaffery and Nora Roberts myself.

What a great list of books you have here. :) Now to answer your questions:

I love the Vampire Dairies by J. J. Smith. It's a series of books.

As for bookmarks this one caught my eye as I love color:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14428861

PS: I too sell on etsy so I know how promoting can go, good luck!

Mostly I like crime novels, and my favorite author right now is Greg Iles. One of the best books I've read lately is Deception Point....thriller!
my most used bookmarks are the 'page clip' type

Your bookmarks are lovely. I love crime drama novels so right now I am reading John Sandford. As for bookmarks, I am not really a bookmark user. I am more of a dog-ear the page kinda person.
