I just found this while browsing the site. Click on Community--->Spread the word----> Bookmarks

So many neat designs and patterns!

I work at a library, so I plan to sneak a few into books as well as have a few on hand since I am always talking to patrons about the site :)

That's a brilliant idea!

When I was at college, I printed some out and left them on tables in the Literary House. They were gone after a few days. I can only hope that they were found by my fellow students and not tossed out by the cleaning ladies. I've been meaning to do this again. Perhaps I'll leave some at my local library!

I was thinking I could leave them in books I send...but you all know about the site lol

I love the quotes, especially "Outside of a dof, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." Groucho Marx

I always carry a few bookmarks or the business cards with me to hand to people I meet, who are interested in the site, or to leave places to promote it!  They are great tools and so cute!

Margaret, that's a really good idea to keep some on your person!

One of the last times I was at the Post Office to mail out some PBS books, the woman in line behind me asked me what they were and I started telling her about PBS. She sounded really interested and said she's check it out. Now I wish I could have given her one of the PBS bookmarks to help remind her to visit the site.

Has anyone actually gotten referrals from them?

I have printed them various times and left them at the doctors office, dentist office, pinned some to the bulletin board at the supermarket, etc,  but haven't gotten any referrals from them.

I deleted off my e-mail and changed my name to Join Us! Since I plan on leaving them around where I work, I don't want my personal info out there. Plus, I have enough credits :)

I have it as my signature on my personal email.  I will be running our local FOL sale this year, so I will printed a ton out and leave them for buyers to pick up as free book marks.
