My mother passed away last year. My sisters name in Jean. Although I know there is no way it could be.. for a couple of minutes it was pleasant to dream. I miss my mother. The handwriting is even similar. Thank you.

That's a great book!

I just discovered your blog, and I am so glad I did. I can't believe it's not monetized! What a goldmine. Sorry-- that's the accountant in me talking.

I love the handwritten recipes, too. If you find some handwritten in Portuguese, let me know. I'm putting together a cookbook and I'll buy them.

Your blog is one of the most original I've ever seen.

I watched the movie. It's awesome. Sorry. Just being the typical 17-year-old that I am here. I'd love to have the book. Surely it's more interesting than the movie itself. Great blog btw :)

I really like your blog.

Good job mate.

I find this post very touching. It is one of the most unusual posts I have seen in a long time.

Your bookmark find is almost an evocation of bookmarks I use, not signed, that I usually hunt years for, because I cannot remember which book I left it/them in.

Beautiful...

I LOVE that book. :) The card is poignant, and just the right find for it.

I found this blog not too long ago, and how delightful it is! Thanks so much for sharing with us.

This blog alone has made me feel less self conscious about the odd-ball things I use as bookmarks. Right now I'm using a random business card I was handed at a tattoo convention. It's for a business I have no desire to shop from (a sex-toy shop), but I love the card because it has a lovely image of a pin-up girl on it.

has anyone ever read your blog and found their own bookmark?

Such a neat blog!
I love looking through library books for bookmarks. I used to collect them. Now I only keep the cool ones. The gum wrappers and little slips of paper got kind of boring after a while.

I also collect cards from the old card catalog system.

Anyway, I'm now following your blog. Keep up the neat work :)

that was kind of sad even though it was meant to be sweet.

that's one of my favourite books in the whole world, although I love the old 70's cover art by Michael Heslop much, much better. the recent movie was such an abomination it upset me and many others no end... for a book with such evocative imagery, it was terrible the way they tampered with the sense of place and the storyline.

my mother was the one who discovered the series in a local book store when I was about 10, and every time I read these books (which is still almost annually) I think of her and her remarkable talent for knowing exactly what I'd love. just like a mum :-)
