Commuter Bookmark

About: I'm just exploring my way through this mysterious world of webs and pixels.


My dear friend is a voracious reader. She goes through paperbacks the way that I go through cardstock: with surgical precision and speed. She promised to pass her recently-completed books to me, but I found myself woefully unprepared to keep track of my place. I used a dollar bill at first, and that led me to believe, for a while, that the local hobos had a burgeoning interest in literature. Turns out, that was not the case. Then I began to use a tissue, but a bout with hay fever made me lose my bookmark and my spot in the text.

Here is my solution for the 9-5 commuter: a commuter bookmark! To make it:

1) I opened up MS Paint
2) I drew my ideal bus/train seat partner
3) I printed to cardstock
4) Using my good scissors, I carefully trimmed around his outline
5) I inserted him betwixt my pages

    I have a bookmark similar to your bookmark. I would like you to make an instruction about it. You don't even need to mention me but just let me use your instruction in the future, please!

    I strongly recommend "Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night" to anybody needing to get a grasp of the autistic world-view, but unable to get specialist training (such as teachers).
