  1. lol! i never thought of it, but bacon is actually the perfect size and shape for a bookmark. i'm imagining a nice hardcover edition of Hamlet with a piece of bacon poking out the top – how classy.

  2. Hee, LM! Thanks for the laugh.
    These bookmarks are way fancy. I used to have a big bookmark collection, but now I use old boarding passes from trips. It's fun to stop for a moment and remember a fun vacation or getaway.

  3. Of course! We'll give the (paper) ones away as promotional materials. It will increase both literacy and cholesterol.

  4. This is cool — I used to have a bookmark from England that was a "jam butty" that also was apparently inspired by something actually found in a book. Maybe the same company made both bookmarks? When I was given the bookmark, I had to go home and look up "jam butty"… it's a sandwich made with one piece of bread folded over some jam. What I called, when I was very small, an "awkward sandwich" (for reasons that made sense to me at the time).

  5. Ooh, I *love* bookmarks! Thanks so much for all the links, mariser.And Useta I think "awkward sandwich" makes a lot of sense now. ;)
