I saw this picture and post on the Facebook page of The Reading Room and thought it was interesting. I wanted to share it with you all! Have you ever left something in a book (on purpose) for another reader, like this note? Or have you ever left something in a book accidentally? Ooh, have you ever found something in a book, like a note or something else?
The only time I remember intentionally leaving something in a book was when I gave a friend (who was moving far away) a book – I left a note at the end. I don’t think I’ve accidentally left anything behind in a book in a long time. After working in a library for a few years, I’ve developed a habit of flipping through books – either when returning them to the library or returning/loaning to a friend.
Personally, I’ve only found bookmarks, receipts, or blank pieces of paper (bookmarks) in books that I get from the library or used bookstore. When I worked at the library, though, I found all kinds of things!!
I think it would be kind of cool to find a note like these in a book! So, I’m going to try to remember to do this on occasion! I really like this idea! So, have any of you ever left or found a note (or something else) in a book? What did you leave or find?
