I dog-ear the pages of a book to keep my place. Always have.
I could never make bookmarks work the way they should. I found they would fall out and lose my place, or get lost when I took them out to read.
Plenty of my childhood books have those bendy, tattered deckle-edged corners where I have dog-eared my book to keep my place.
Fortunately, most books I read nowadays are eBooks. I can't dog ear them; I must use bookmarks. At least when I toss my Kobo into my bag, those bookmarks do not fall out.
Today's question: Dog ears: convenient necessity or evil practice?
Her Grace is not such a heathen that she would ever dog ear a loaner or a library book. But she will leave them lying open, face-down, which some people consider just as bad.
