Old Book Marks

Yesterday my husband took me to Nice Price Books in Carborro, NC for the first time.

Both of us are bibliophiles and LOVE adding to our collection and I have to say I can't wait to go back! They have an amazingly diverse and well organized collection in what used to be an old church in the 40's.

I'm a firm believer that the right books always find me. I rarely go to a second hand book store looking for anything in particular. I enjoy taking my time in each section until I come across a book that seems to scream "take me home".

Often it's not only the book, but the book mark that seals the deal. - My most recent find was a Dale Carnegie classic : How to Stop Worrying and Start Living (4th printing 1948).

The book mark that Discovered folded neatly on page 144 is an old full page Esquire cartoon that reads: ". . . so you see, Mr. Carnegie, my problem now is to get him to stop living and start worrying again"

What book marks do you leave behind?

What book marks have you discovered and still use?
