Booked by 3: November aka Book Plates

I've been away, and managed to mangle (cut and bruise) my right index finger by jamming it in a sliding van door while visiting my best friend in New Jersey. It's healing and I can type with it now.

And since I found a neato link for Book Plates, I decided to make it this month's Booked by 3 theme, that of marking your books in some way to show they belong to you.

  1. Do you use bookplates (For those who don't know, they're nice designs on paper you glue into books to claim them as yours)?
  2. Do you write your name in your books?
  3. Do you attach stickers with your name and / or other info into your books?

As always, my answers will be posted in a day or two.


  1. I stamp mine with my name in purple ink like libraries, the purple will not fad as much as other colors. Since I started stamping the top spine and bottom spine based on a recommendation I not get back about 90% of the books I lend out, as opposed to about 60% before started stamping them.

  2. That reminds me of when I was a kid. I'd make my own library pockets for books and when I lent them to friends, I put in a due date card. Guess I was meant to become a librarian. :)

  3. Well, such as they are, my answers are posted. I'm lazy...or I don't loan my books. :-)

  4. I'd love to look at your blog, lrts, but I can't access it because your profile isn't public.

  5. answers up on my page, you may have started something with me here Shelly :)

  6. Thanks for the link, Shelley. I'm in the midst of my post as I type.

  7. You're welcome, Jenclair. :)
