Bookmarks is a bimonthly American literary magazine dedicated to general readers, book groups, and librarians. It carries the tagline, "For everyone who hasn't read everything." Launched in 2002,[1] Bookmarks summarizes and distills published book reviews and includes articles covering classic and contemporary authors, "best-of" genre reading lists, reader recommendations, and book group profiles. It was named a "Best New Magazine" shortly after its debut by Library Journal.[2] Bookmarks magazine is based in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.[3] It was previously headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.[4]

Kurt Vonnegut also weighed in on one of the earlier issues; the September/October 2003 issue, which featured a profile on Vonnegut's life and works, prompted him to describe Bookmarks as "the first publication to summarize my career as a writer." "I am beguiled by your physical beauty," he continued, "and I am moved by how head-over-heels in love with books you are. And nowhere else have I found such thoughtful and literate reportage on the state of the American soul, as that soul makes itself known in the books we write. News of the hour indeed!"
