simple, quick, easy, geeky
The weekend we went to the dog show, my husband and Dad stopped at their favorite bookstore, Uncle Hugo's, which happens to be near Children's Hospital. Dad tried to sell back some books and many were taken but several were not. He left them with me.
I took the Mary Stewart book (which I have a copy of and have read) and the Piers Anthony book (which neither my husband I would probably read) and the nearly fifty year-old copy of The Island of Doctor Moreau (in poor condition) which I had picked up and read for my literary book club and made me some bookmarks.
Fun, simple, and nearly instant gratification. :)
P.S. I do not have a laminating machine. I simply make sure that when I make bookmarks they are narrow enough to sandwich between two layers of packing tape. If you burnish the packing tape well and trim carefully the results are quite durable.
