Old and new bookmarks

Elaine has posted photographs of her old and new bookmarks. The old one, a DO-NOT-USE-AS-BOOKMARK bookmark, made it through five years of the Four Seasons Reading Club. The new one is a legit bookmark, from Three Lives & Company.

As someone who in the dark ages once had to endure the un-dog-eared discipline of trying to get those things to run through a card reader I can attest that using them as bookmarks was a very bad thing, unless of course it's being done to taunt a book about Fortran77 :-)

Ha! I always like finding these cards (they’re rarer all the time), and even better, circulation slips going back to the ’30s and ’40s (also rarer all the time).
