Just two ribbons, and a pencil for noting page no.s down.

3 Post It flags right now, but I just printed off the bookmarks on the main page so I will be using them instead

I'm using two - the ones with the calendar/timetable found elsewhere on this site. I have cut them out and stuck them on some pink cardboard, which prompted derisive comments from my girlfriend. I think I should leave her.

Dog-ears forever! One for my current page, one for whatever passage I'm particularly enjoying at the moment, and one for the footnotes.

My book looks like a complicated hairstyle in mid-process. Here it is pictured, with accoutrements.

I've got 2: an old realtor's business card that I dug out of my wallet for the main text, and a metrocard that may have a few bucks on it for the endnotes.

So far I'm using 3 bookmarks, the calendars from http://miklb.com/user/downloads/infsum_bookmark.pdf. (Thanks, Miklb)

I also have a notebook, a sharp pencil, one of those leather-covered lead things to hold the pages of the book open, and a stack of post-it notes that I've used sparingly, but with increased frequency.

I've found I can seldom move from inside the house to the backyard without dropping something.

Three bookmarks: one for the current page, one for the endnotes, and one for the next "goal" page on the schedule.

Two bookmarks, one for my current place and one for footnotes. I also have a bunch of post-its that I add along the way to jot down little summaries of parts I'll probably want to check back on. The post-its are something I've started on my second reading. I only used the two bookmarks the first time.
