The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Do you collect bookmarks?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
I don’t collect bookmarks per se but I have two special collections of bookmarks that I hold dear.
One is a Harry Potter set of 4 metal bookmarks representing the 4 Hogwarts houses that my daughter gave me one year as a gift.
The other is a set of wooden painted bookmarks from China that I was given as a gift from a Chinese TA in my biology class. I helped him write a letter to get his wife over to the US from China, and he was so grateful, he had her send the bookmarks as a thank you. I’ve never used them as I immediately framed them in a shadow box frame and placed them on my wall.
I was hoping to include a photo of them but they are currently packed up for safe keeping. When we moved, I realized that our new home has too many windows and not much wall space. So almost all of my wall hangings are still packed and kept in storage.
