I know we hate it when people answer our questions with something else, but I did want to point out that from my experience the large loops that you put over a book with some cute thing at the bottom, works the best for me. The corner ones would not stay on and got bumped off very easily. The ones I prefer are also called book thongs. The added nice thing is that you can just slip them over your wrist when you start reading and then slip them back over the book when you are done. No searching to see where you put the bookmark.
