I am always losing bookmarks and, as I don’t like to fold down the edges of pages when I want to put a book down, I just find the nearest thing to hand to mark my place be it a bus ticket, or an envelope, or anything that will allow me to get back to where I had got to before.

Otherwise I have to guess where I was and end up starting to read and soon after realising that I had already read that part and was actually further along in the book than I thought I was, which I hate.
