It’s cliche at this point to call fall reading season, but there’s a reason cliches resonate: they have some bit of the truth to them. This is the time of year when temperatures cool down — even if it’s minimal — and the nights grow longer and darker. Hoodies and warm beverages become irresistible, and once you’re settled in under a cozy blanket, it’s hard to not want to pick up a book and settle in. When you need to refill your cup, though, what better way to bring the season into your reading quite literally than with fall bookmarks?
I initially wanted to stick to fall floral bookmarks for this roundup, to correspond to the pressed flower bookmarks perfect for spring. There were surprisingly few, though, but they’re included. Also included among this selection of fall bookmarks are gourds and pumpkins, leaves, and all of the autumnal vibes in oranges, yellows, reds, and deep blues and purples. I haven’t included much in terms of spooky bookmarks because you can find them linked. Holiday themed bookmarks are also not included but we know how fall-themed goods work for all of the celebrations that land in this season.
Ready? Set? Let’s get our reading on.

My college had a giant gingko tree that inspired a number of legends, including one where if someone brushed their hair under a full moon there, they’d see the face of their one true love.
