Like the accessories that virtually all ladies can’t seem to live and move around with, a book isn’t complete without having a bookmark.
Today, you’ll learn about what a bookmark is, and why it’s important to have one for your book as an author. The ‘bookmark’ being talked about here isn’t a special mark or stamp that will be placed on your book… NO.
A quick look into the Oxford Dictionary gives us a vivid understanding of what a ‘bookmark’ really is. It is a strip of leather, card, or other material, used to mark one’s place in a book.
When a reader goes through your book, some of them can place within the pages of your book, a random piece of anything, to signify where they currently stopped reading, or fold the page they just stopped at; which damages the book faster.
This situation then calls for the need of a bookmark to be attached to the book. A bookmark that is attached to the book will be slotted in between the pages of your book, and they’ll have a more enjoyable reading experience when next they choose to pick up the book to read.
Here’s what a bookmark looks like:
It comes in different shapes & sizes, and with a variety of colors.
Some major reasons why authors should find Bookmarks important for books are listed below:
IMPORTANCE OF A BOOKMARK
– It Reduces Frequency of Book Damage
When your reader makes a purchase of your book, except for gifting purposes, they don’t really have it at the top of their mind to buy that same copy of your book again.
You can make your reader’s life easier by ensuring they end up with a longer-lasting book, when you attach a bookmark to your book, to avoid having them fold up several pages of your book that they bought.
– It Allows For Easier Multi-Reading of Books
For many of the avid readers that will purchase your book, they tend to read some parts of a book, pick a lesson, implement it, then move on swiftly to another book to perform the same cycle.
Eventually, when they come back to go through the books they’ve dropped, which inadvertently be your book,
By having a bookmark in place in the book, they won’t have to go through the mental stress of figuring out the page they stopped reading at, which may even lead to them not reading the book itself.
You don’t want your book to just gather dust on their shelves, and not actually help your audience that bought it.
A bookmark eliminates that reading procrastination factor for your book.
– It’s a Fantastic Gift Idea
During the special occasion of your loved ones who are bibliophiles, you can send them a bunch of your customized bookmark.
You’ll hold a dear place in their heart and stay top of mind, which means more recommendations of your book to their friends and dear ones too.
– Time Saver for Book Readers
People that bought your books also have a life to live. They party, work, sleep, eat & drink.
This means they won’t always be glued to the pages of your book, and if they find it problematic to always switch open your book to the page where they stopped reading, their interest in reading it will definitely be reduced.
With a bookmark in your book, this won’t be an issue, as they’ll just be able to switch to their ‘last read’.
