I’m well on my way with my 2016 reading plan! This past week I had the pleasure of starting in on two of this year’s selections: Teaching From Rest and The Awakening of Miss Prim. I really like to have at least two books on the go — a fiction and a non-fiction, or a “heavy” read and a light read. This week has been a bit of a treat because both books are such easy going page turners! Although it is a short book, and charmingly written, there is still a lot of meat and inspiration in Teaching from Rest; it is giving me much encouragement regarding my children’s education and my mothering.
And since I’m chugging along full steam ahead with my reading commitments, I thought I would refresh my stash of bookmarks with a good supply of motivational bookmarks to keep me reading all the year through!
So here they are, the are intended to be thought provoking and to inspire self education and a literary lifestyle! Each bookmark features beautiful watercolour flowers and contains a quotation on the subject of reading and books from such writers as Hemingway, Emerson and Thoreau. So go ahead, print them off for yourself and enjoy! You can print them off on regular paper or cardstock, and even laminate them if you want to make sure they last. Or punch a hole in the top and tie a ribbon on, and tuck one into your next book gift or when you loan a book to a friend!
The beautiful watercolour clipart is from Angie Makes.

These are lovely. My daughter is always looking for at new book marks for her reading addiction. I will have to print these for her. 🙂 She would love that one that says There is no friend as loyal as a book. 🙂
Those are beautiful bookmarks. 🙂 I also like to read a nonfiction and a fictional book at the same time.
Nice! Sure beats the ripped paper I’m currently using as a bookmark. 🙂
Ha! That’s always the way it ends up, isn’t it?
I don’t get time to read much. 🙁 I usually end up stuffing some kind of playing card or folded up post-it-note into my book as a bookmark when I do get to read! lol.
Thanks for sharing.
I don’t get nearly so much time to read as I’d like. One of these days, the kids will be gone for a whole day (or even a few hours) and I’ll curl up with a book . . . nevermind, I’ll probably end up cleaning 😉
These book marks are so pretty- My son is an avid reader who constantly looses his bookmarks so these will make a nice addition! Plus I have a ton of yarn sitting in my basement so I might make some fun tassles to top them off 🙂
