Translating Bookmark

Alright, I admit I may have spent about $100 on light novels a bit early, but I really wanted them. But for now, I at least wanna know what the bookmark means. Can any of you help me sort it out a little?


It’s a sales slip for the bookstore’s use. You’ll find them in a lot of Japanese books. Is there a particular part of it that you’re interested in understanding further?


when you buy a book in a japanese bookstore, the cashier will pull out the “bookmark” and keep it, presumably to keep track of sales.

When you buy books online, there is no cashier or anyone to take that slip out to keep track of sales since online companies do it automatically by computer anyways.

I may have made some mistakes, but I’m sure if I did someone else will correct me.
