Do you use bookmarks?

I hate dog-earred pages so yes, I do use bookmarks. (The one in the picture is a souvenir from my mom's aunt who visited Cambodia a couple of years back.) I recently read an interesting post about the different (and weird) types of bookmarks people use for their books. Leaves, pencils and pens, plane tickets, grocery store receipts - these are just some of the stuff people use. The most unconventional one I've used is probably my cellphone. That's when I can't find anything else to use. Do you use one? If you do, what do you use? Anything weird at all?

I will never dog ear a page. Most books I read are ebooks, but when I do read a book literally everything turns into a bookmark. When I was a teenager, I used to use a piece of paper and write my favorite quotes from books onto the paper and use that a bookmark.

I have a bit of fabric from my mom's favorite kitchen curtains that I cut into a strip for a bookmark; that's probably the one that's been with me the longest. But I do love bookmarks as much as the books. You have to think about what they're made of sometimes, because I had a red leather one that tinted the page pink, and even a receipt might leave an ink transfer.
