On page 70 of the Emacs 26 manual (10.8 Bookmarks) the phrase

> The prototypical use of bookmarks is to record where you were
> reading in various files.

After listing out various keybindings, the manual continues with

> The prototypical use for bookmarks is to record one current position
> in each of several files. So the command C-x r m, which sets a
> bookmark ...

This is potentially confusing, so might I suggest changing the second
paragraph to

> The command C-x r m, which sets a bookmark...

Thus eliminating the duplicate sentence.
