page corner bookmarks | I Could Make That This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Page corner bookmarks are cute, practical and deeply under-represented in the world.* They’re easy to make, easy to customize, and will set you apart from all those same-same flat rectangular bookmarks. If you like this tutorial, here are a couple others that might be up your alley.

Toptitel der Kindle-E-Books Charts sind oft kostenlos Die Mehrheit der elektronischen Bücher für den Kindle, die bei Amazon nachgefragt werden, ist gratis. So stehen 20 Titel auf der Top-25-Liste der Bestseller im Kindle Shop fast kostenlos zum Download bereit. Der E-Commercekonzern Amazon.com hatte zuvor verkündet, am ersten Weihnachtstag 2009 erstmalig mehr E-Books für den Kindle-Reader verkauft zu haben als gedruckte Bücher. Die Gratistitel seien dabei aber nicht mitgerechnet worden, erklärte Amazon dem Blog des Wall Street Journal All Things Digital. Auf dem ersten Platz der Bestseller im Kindle Store lag um 14:00 Uhr am 29. Dezember 2009 der Titel Midnight in Madrid von Noel Hynd. Die folgenden sechs Titel in der Hitliste sind ebenfalls für 2,30 US-Dollar zu haben. Der E-Bookreader Kindle ist auch in Deutschland bestellbar, doch der Nutzer hat damit nur Zugriff auf Amazons Onlineshop, der bislang ausschließlich englischsprachige Bücher anbietet. 300.000 Bücher seien für deutsche Kunden verfügbar, so der E-Commercekonzern.
