"From a biological point of view, the common Bookmark (lat. Signum libri), together with the Bookhound and the Bookworm, belongs in the family of book inhabitants.
This cute little animal was first domesticated in Egypt, when it still roamed the faraway reading corners of our globe, untamed and wild. The famous pharao Tut-Was-Lesen (Reads-a-bit) was even buried with his favourite bookmark.
The Bookmark probably came to Europe during the Migration Period, inside the poetry book of a Barbarian prince. Since then, the Bookmark has been enjoying lots of popularity and high renown in our regions.
It is said that Goethes bookmark inspired him to write his most beautiful works, while another one emigrated to America in the 19th century, where it founded Les Angeles (Lesen - to read).
Bookmarks are quite frugal when it comes to their husbandry conditions. It is absolutely enough to put them in a book from bookstore Riemann from time to time.
How the Bookmark breeds and raises its young, however, still remains one of the great mysteries of bibliology."
