Things I leave the house with.
- My keys
- My purse
- My Kindle or a book.
Have I told you how much I love my Kindle?
I do not remember sharing my pure devotion the best e-reader ever, but if you say so I'll take your word for it.....
I LOVE MY KINDLE!!!!!
I named her Kinderlee
One of the best features of Kinderlee is the fact that I can highlight passages that I love. Those highlighted passages are stored on my Kindle and on my Kindle website. Sometimes I like to go back and read the passages that made me think, made me laugh or just plain touched my heart.
Now that I have been spoiled by the highlighting feature on Kindle I find it hard to sit down and read a paper book. I find myself aching to highlight and I can't. Well I could sit there with a highlighter and mark up a perfectly good book but I don't want to. It seems wrong to deface a book. Like killing a puppy wrong.
I like to pass books on, and allow people to enjoy it without my influences. I come from a time and place where writing in books was frowned upon.
So I came up with a great solution! I get to document my favorite passages, have them easily accessible and not deface fine works of literature.
'It's just a bookmark!' you say?
Well no, look closer....
Ahhh! It opens up to form a little notebook...A notebook-mark if you must.
And you must.
All I did was take about five or six pieces of plain white paper and cut them all to the same size. I used my Cricut, thus the shape and uniform appearance. Note you can just free-hand cut this, it comes out just fine Than I cut a fancy piece of paper for the cover. Stack all the papers together, punch a hole at the top, string a ribbon through the hole and add a brad to keep it all together.
When I come to a passage I love I write the page number and either the whole passage or a shortened version. .
This bookmark will stay in this book forever and ever for me to reference anytime I come back to it.
Okay you can say it.
I know, and proud of it!
