Is there any software for Windows or web based application that would allow me to open pdf and before closing create a bookmark so I know where to 'open my book' next time?

I can see that there is a question from a linux user. I need windows version or web based application.

The best would be to mark exact paragraph, or even a word

Adobe PDF Reader can do this.

that's great, what exact paragraph? word? – Radek Nov 14 '10 at 4:28
It restores to the last line that you were viewing @Radek – Sathya Nov 14 '10 at 4:48
yes, you're right. I clicked the line I had in my mind. I didn't scroll there. Cool solved. Any web based application that does the same? – Radek Nov 14 '10 at 4:57
@Radek I'm not aware of any web based apps which can do this. – Sathya Nov 14 '10 at 14:49

SumatraPDF does not create bookmarks per se but remembers where you were in a PDF when you close the app and opens to that page when you re-open.

Evince has a Win32 port.

Foxit is a Windows PDF-reader with bookmarks support (including creation and editing).
This feature is included even in the free version as can be seen in this comparison-sheet of their version.

Mobipocket Reader remembers your last page and also allows bookmarks so you can easily switch between selected passages. It's free and has links to many eBook sites if you want more.

Adobe Digital Editions also remembers the last page read. It's not great, but has some desirable features.
