After the Ilustrado book launch, I was wandering around National Book Store with Flipper friend Ruby (who’s just moved her blog, by the way — I have to update my links!), because I needed new paintbrushes for the project I’m currently working on and I found these nifty bookmarks!
As you all know, I’ve started collecting bookmarks (apt, don’t you think, since the title of my blog is ‘Bookmarked!’?), and I wanted these for my collection. These brightly colored bookmarks caught my eye — four to a set in purple, orange, yellow, and sky blue, not bad for P75 (less than $2), and I found it’s priced higher at the other bookstores (P100 at another bookstore and a whopping P275 at another!).
I just love them! When you see one inserted in a book, it just calls out to you. I can imagine them saying, “Help! Finish this book already!” or “Help! Book addict alert!” (or in my case, also “Bookmark addict alert!”), and there’s your cue to shake your head at my overactive imagination. Haha!
Coolness!!! There are also, of all things, cocktail stirrers (yes, at the bookstore) that match these bookmarks — I guess a good book and a cool cocktail (margarita, yum!) make a perfect combination!
