Holiday Challenge

Our bookmarks are well-traveled: They have been spotted all over the country and beyond - even as far away as Australia. In honor of our humble bookmarks, we're setting up a fun challenge for the summer months. Please send in your photos of our bookmark in whatever holiday spot you find yourself. We will award a prize to the person who sends in the most interesting bookmark photo. The winning entry will receive a $25 gift certificate for the bookshop. Send entries to with the subject line Bookmark Challenge. Entries must be received on or before Labor Day. 

Here's one of the entries: sand dollars, horseshoe crab, and a bookmark!
