Cigar Life Diary: Cigar Bookmarking

I enjoy spending an afternoon or evening off with a cigar and a great book. The quiet helps me relax completely as I indulge in the luxury of a cigar and book pairing (cigars, after all, have stories, too).

But one of the little things I enjoy afterward is using my cigar band as a bookmark for the next time I have the fortune to continue reading. I don’t always smoke a cigar when I read, some places simply don’t allow it. I do however like keeping all my cigar bands and recycling them as bookmarks as often as I can. It is very simple to do and adds an elegant touch to the home library.

What do you do with your cigar bands?

    What a great idea. Don’t know if I’ll remember the book, but I’ll definitely remember the cigar.

    Thank you, Robert- I truly appreciate that 🙂

    Terri, it makes the book a bit more involved for me and then in the end more memorable because of the cigar. Smell and memory go together after all. And it’s just a great way to make use of the bands 😉

    I myself and not a fan of Gurkha ive given it my best to be onpeed minded ive tried the Warlord, the viper and ninja, and the Assassin all are different blends but all share the same characteristics bad draw, splitting in the wrapper, very flaky ash probably due to poor rolling. my thoughts are if they spent as much time crafting there trendy beautiful boxes and put that effort in there cigars then they might have a good product but thats just my opinion
