Robin at In My Books sent me three wonderful bookmarks. No, wait, greeting cards. Yes, they're both! Imagine you're giving a friend a gift that just happens to be a book. You fill out a card that says, "Enjoy! Get well soon! I loved this book and hope you do too!" or whatever. After your grateful recipient reads your note, he or she can simply tear it along the perforation and have a swell bookmark to keep forever and ever.
There are many different styles, each with an original pen-and-ink drawing by artist Meredith Hamilton and with a cute dedication: "In my book ... you're quite a character." "In my book ... you're novel." "In my book ... you're the happy ending."And so on. They can be purchased for $3.95 each at the website.
Robin was kind enough to send me three bookmarks (each comes with its own red envelope)—one to keep and two to give away to you. If you'd like to win one (still in its cellophane sleeve so you can give it away with a gift), leave a comment telling me what book you're reading now, and what you're using for a bookmark in it. I'll take entries until Sunday midnight, my time. Good luck, and happy reading!
Update 10/4/10: The contest is over, and Pam and Mark are the winners! Congratulations!
