In the same node:
"your default bookmark file, `~/.emacs.bmk'"

I would suspect that the bookmarks file is damaged. Either open it in

the wrong place, as the error message says) or delete it.

Was it plain elisp or some very strange letters? In the latter case it
might be so that it got byte compiled on the way.
