A black collar book event.

Reading is one of my favorite past times. However, it seems like I’m always struggling to find a way to keep my place in a book. I lose bookmarks left and right and I’m often folding the book jacket onto my page of choice or using an old fast food receipt I scrounge up from the floor board of my car. So when I stumbled across this adorable idea for a diy bow tie page marker, “brilliant” came to mind.
Not only are these “bookmarks” a snap to make, they’re also pretty as a picture. It’s also a great way to recycle any fabric scraps you may have that you weren’t quite sure what to do with. I like the idea of making up a handful of these and giving them as teacher gifts. Hop over to How About Orange for the instructions on making this simple, eco-friendly craft project.
In the meantime, I’m holding my place in Blood Promise by Richelle Mead. It’s the fourth book in the Vampire Academy series and also a teen novel. I’m a huge fan of sci-fi/fantasy and paranormal fiction, so this series is right up my alley. Sometimes I have to dip into the teen fiction pool for something interesting while waiting for a new novel from one of my favorite “adult” fiction authors to come up with something new. Generally I find I am not disappointed.
So what’s currently on your reading list?

    Awesome book series! I love it. I’m waiting for the library to get Last Sacrifice in.

    that’s so cute! I’ll have to go and check out the instructions!!

    the Vampire Academy series has been on my list of books to read for a long time, but I’m just about to read Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr. It’s the final book in the series, so I had to go back and re-read the first four =)
