Looks like it should work fine to me. Bookmarks will only return a resource though.
Are you calling the bookmarks function from somewhere? I assume your connection is open somewhere; mysql should be a global resource so it will find whatever open connection you have regardless of scope.
Can you be more specific by doesn't work?
