The Bibliophile In Japleen Is In Love With This Bookmark
Every January 1, I make a list of things that I have to accomplish through the year. So, out came my diary and pen on Sunday, to jot down things that may or may not be achieved. Apart from going on treks more frequently, I HAVE to read at least one book a month. No excuses about not having time — it is basically a necessity that needs to be a part of my life. And to motivate me to keep reading and not allow social media to steal my attention, I am going to indulge in a few splurges. Buy a cool reading lamp, make a nice nook in my room with fairy lights, paste book quotes on my walls, most importantly, get a beautiful bookmark!
And as soon as I voiced out this wish, my cutest friend, Farozan Dossani, she helped me find one that was perfect.
‘Curators of cool’ came to the rescue once again and, this time, with a message. Propshop’s ‘Be free’ bookmark is the ideal thing to help make sure I never put that book down. Sure, it’s a bit pricey at Rs 800, but it *is* gold plated and oh-so shiny! That justifies it, right? Plus, it is doing 2 jobs at one go — making me read more and giving me a kickass new year’s resolution. Beautifully designed and easy to carry around, I think I’ve found my new obsession.
I will also DIY this into a gorgeous locket at some point, and wear it around like a boss. I’m going to go note that in my diary now.
