I am dubbed Mark Wordsworm. I am a Hallmark bookmark, serial number 95 HBM 80-1. At a guess, I’m around 25 years old. I spend most of my time inside a book (well, duh) while my Travelling Companion sees the world.
My exact origins are lost in the mists of time and geography. My Travelling Companion picked me up (lucky thing, She is) in a bookshop called “The Bookworm” somewhere in South Africa — Cape Town or Rivonia, most likely. The year was probably earlier than 1986. Putting modesty aside, I haven’t changed much. Alas, I can’t say the same for Her.
Since then I’ve lived in South Africa, England, the Netherlands and Australia and travelled the world. In this blog, I’ll tell you about my travels and pass on some acquired wisdom. A tad tedious, you think? Wait and see.
The Travelling Companion goes by the name of Sarah Maddox. She has her own blog at ffeathers.
Do you know anything about me?
Please drop me a comment if you’ve seen others like me or if you can pinpoint my age more exactly than I can.
