A couple of weeks late, but I thought I’d share these anyway. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book our library gave away the above bookmarks and badge. I didn’t start reading the series until after I saw the first movie, but I bought the seventh book on the day it came out and had it finished the same weekend.

Saturday was Canada Day, so I thought I’d share this free Canada 150 bookmark that I got from our local library. We had a fairly quiet weekend and that was fine.

Today is the Victoria Day holiday in Canada, so I thought I’d share this picture of a souvenir bookmark that dates from 1897 and was issued to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It is on display at the British Museum.

With the Leafs making the playoffs this year for the first time in a few years, there’s more hockey being watched in our house this year. Although it’s good to see 5 of the 7 Canadian teams making the playoffs, there’s really only 2 of them that I’d like to see winning the cup. I treated myself to this NHL bookmark last week when I was in Indigo on my birthday.

I saw the following bookmark at the library tonight when I was picking up some more books and I thought it would be appropriate with tomorrow being Valentine’s Day.

Bookmark Monday – Coffee (Jan 23)

This week’s bookmark is another one from our local library, this time one featuring coffee, as opposed to the tea one I shared a couple of weeks ago. I used to drink a minimum of 6 cups of coffee a day, but now I’m down to a couple of cups of decaf. The caffeinated version was just affecting me too much in a negative way, so I went cold turkey and have never looked back.

I couldn’t decide which bookmark to use this week, so I just took a picture of the box of bookmarks that sits on one of our bookshelves. We’re never stuck for something to keep our place in whatever we happen to be reading.

I stopped drinking caffeinated coffee about 6 or 7 months ago, so now I drink a lot of tea instead. I used to drink a lot of coffee, probably too much, but I don’t really miss at all these days. I picked up the following tea themed bookmark at our local library last week. The book it is sitting on is one that has been waiting to be read for a few years now. Maybe I need to brew some tea from the teabag sitting on it and finally get started on it!

I found this neat idea – an origami reindeer bookmark – at Easy Peasy and Fun. With Christmas getting ever closer it might be one worth trying. The page has links to other origami animal bookmarks as well.

With less than 4 weeks until Christmas, it’s almost time to get the Advent Calendars out. My choice for this year is a Kinder Surprise calendar. I’m not doing the Starbucks calendar this year because I gave up caffeinated coffee earlier this year. But I digress. An alternative, or even an addition, to having an Advent Calendar is the following bookmark and idea shared at My Little Bookcase. It’s the neat and easy little idea of having  Christmas countdown bookmark. Check out the post and consider making your own.
