Makes a change from the easyJet ticket stubs I normally use.

I usually use the receipt too. But when I bought my HP book they gave me a free bookmark, so I'm using that.

A piece of paper - that way the book eating budgie has something to gnaw on, until she gets board of that , pulls it out, waddles around trying to control something the same size as herself, dragging it across my arm, then throwing it on the floor before declaring: good girl, good good girl, cackling and buggering off

They make great bookmarks! and easy to find if you get a ticket inspector.

I tried that... only if you finish one book and you leave your ticket (which is a monthly ticket for me) it means that you don't have your ticket with you when you start the next book (it's happened to me, anyway :oops: )
Not to mention the risk with library books...

I have a rather nice brass bookmark which has a turtle and four elephants hanging on a fine chain from the end. It was made by a lady in the US who sells books and makes special bookmarks to go with them - handcuffs & gun for detective stories, bats & daggers for fantasy etc.

But to be honest, I usually use a old train ticket or receipt :lol:
