I have just beefed up my bookshelf to 121 books. Please peruse it HERE.

O.K., then. Now that I have that out of the way, here's the deal - Until Harry Potter comes out (July 15) I am including 4 (that's FOUR) bookmarks with every request. You say, "So what?" Well first off, they are the totally original and widely acclaimed 'daddio' bookmarks featured HERE. As you can see, they are vividly colorful, clever, original, and as you can't see, they come fully laminated for years of placeholding fun (and YES, they really, really work!) Why four? Aside from the fact that they're so cool and collectable, they make great gifts for family & friends. And what Harry Potter fans wouldn't want bookmarks with images from the upcoming Half Blood Prince movie? (a little disclaimer here - These designs are ones I made strictly for my own personal use with no intention of any sales or remuneration. I consider that I am solely sharing them with friends, which is what I consider all PBS members - or you might say that I just happen to be leaving them in my books where others might find them.)

That all being said, here's how the bookmark event will run.

  1. When you place a book request you will have a choice of 4 bookmarks.
  2. While specific bookmarks can not be requested, you can request by category (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Potter) using the following guidelines (I have hundreds of designs, but I have actually MADE only so many.)
  3. You will have to PM me with your request - make sure I know which order is yours.
  4. Only 2 can be had from any category except the HP6 ones, from which you can have all 4. If you like the seasons ones, you might consider getting one of each.
  5. If you make a request of more than 1 book, each book will have 4 bookmarks.

Other than a few close friends, the reason I ever started making bookmarks was for sharing with the PBS community. If nothing else, please just enjoy the link and viewing all of them.A lot of time and effort went into their creation.

One final favor - please. If you have read through this post, please just leave a word or short comment so that it might get bumped up so members can view it for a while.

Thanks to all in advance who might participate and to all those in the past who have helped in similar events.

Thanks, Kristen. You must have quite a collection by now. Why don't the rest of you surf on over and see what it's all about. You won't be disappointed.

Daddio's bookmarks are awesome!  Well worth the price of a book order.  I ordered a book and sent you a PM.

Hi Daddio,

I've ordered a Straub book (been wanting to read Hellfire for awhile).  Straub is the author of my most favorite horror book, Ghost Story. I remember reading it on a lunch break, with my co-workers around, and being scared.

Fabulous bookmarks!  I just ordered Space by James Michener and would love a bookmark for each season.  Thanks for the great idea, the great read, and the great bookmarks.

I can't believe the response so far. It's going to be a very busy weekend for me. Thank you all so much.

Once again, a huge response - at least 15 books shipped out so far. Tons of bookmarks left to give out though (especially Harry Potter), and 12 days left of the promotion. Check it out!
