Privacy Concerns: Don't Use Mail as a Bookmark

I recently read a letter in a Dear Abby column from a librarian who noted an alarming trend. It seems that quite often people use their mail as bookmarks, but they forget to remove the mail when they return the book! This is a huge concern with identity theft so rampant. Not only does the mail have a person’s name and address on it, but sometimes its a bill or bank statement with sensitive information. Bottom line: Don’t use your mail as a bookmark. If you don’t have a bookmark handy, then use one of the free printable ones below:
