My son is a book collector. And a Doctor Who nerd. I wonder who he gets those two traits from? Because he often reads many books at once and has piles all over the house, we need a lot of bookmarks. I’ve been making my own, like the Marvel bookmarks that I shared the other day, and these Doctor Who ones.
Here is the front of the bookmarks, with all of our favorite characters.
Here is the back of the bookmarks, with many fantastic Doctor Who quotes, like:
“Some people live more in 20 years than others do in 80. It’s not the time that matters, it’s the person.”
“You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world!”
“In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important.”
You can download a printable of the Doctor Who Bookmarks to use for your own books. Be sure to laminate them to keep them in good shape. In case you do not already have one, this laminator is the best one out there and is only $30 at Amazon. I purchase these laminating sheets to use with the machine.
We have almost every Doctor Who book known to man and this one – Doctor Who: The Visual Dictionary – is the latest in our library. By the way, my son loves to place props in our photos and that gorgeous Doctor Who fob watch was his birthday gift from my friend Renee.
All it takes is one look inside and you can tell that this is a DK book. Does anyone make books that are more visually appealing, mentally stimulating, and heart-meltingly nostalgic? No, no one does. The book goes beyond the story lines to examine the characters, aliens, weapons and curiosities of Doctor Who.
Have you ever wanted to know exactly what was what inside the TARDIS control room? Doctor Who: The Visual Dictionary has a section that opens up to a 4 page spread that shows you the inner workings of the console. Until this book, I never realized that the console was divided into 6 distinct sections, each with specific functions such as the communications panel or the navigation panel.
My non-Doctor Who friends are going to think I am such a nerd, but I really loved this page. If you’ve ever wanted to know how a fictional sonic screwdriver works, this is the book for you.
Why, hello sweetie. You know how much I love River Song. After all, she is my patronus.
One more page. Just indulge me. A cut away image of a Dalek ship.
