Bookmark Template for Your Most Important Books

Last month I wrote the post How to Live Your Books and Not Just Read Them. There I introduced the idea of “most important books” (MIBs) which says that you should treat some very important books differently to get maximum benefit. Reader Ann M. Mione took the idea and created a bookmark template based on it.

In her words:

I really liked the idea of MIBs in your recent blog post (I was backlogged and just caught up a day or so ago, that’s why I’m just reading it now.) My problem would be that I would forget exactly what I’m supposed to be looking for in the books. So I made up a bookmark to print out and put in my MIBs when they are active (I’m just starting with 2.) I made them into a .pdf template for anyone else who may be interested in using an MIB bookmark.

Ann also has a plan to expand the MIBs idea to non-fiction books (you can check her site for more information). The template is available here.

Thanks, Ann!


  1. Good stuff Donald! MIBs are something that I have too, but they just naturally rose to the surface. What are some of yours? Mine has to include A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, and the Sedona Method.

  2. Thanks, Albert! Mine are now Never Eat Alone and Your Best Life Now. It takes long time before I change my MIBs, perhaps because I’m not good enough at applying them 🙂

  3. […] of my time to take rest and restore my energy. Thankfully, this past week the contents created by Ann and Albert had kept the blog […]

  4. My MIB’s presently include Getting Things Done by David Allen and Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins. Good post. Good concept. This is something that I’ve thought about, but it’s nice to know others have thought about it. And it’s nice to hear the wisdom and insight.
