Bacon Bookmark - photo by James the Page on Tumblr
'I never thought of it, but bacon is actually the perfect size and shape for a bookmark. I'm imagining a nice hardcover edition of Hamlet with a piece of bacon poking out the top - how classy.' - little miao, mariser.vox.com
'The oldest reference is from Omaha, NE, which reported that the Omaha Public Library “has a new trophy in its collection of things used as bookmarks—a slice of bacon.” The article wryly observed that “the library staff will not undertake to preserve it.”' - Laine Farley, The Legend of the Bacon Bookmark, BiblioBuffet Website
