Secret Bookmarks

I've been reading through White Oleander, which I picked up at the library's book sale a few weeks ago. I keep finding hidden treasures in the books, like this square card from Panache Restaurant. There's a giant coffee stain on the back. I don't want to know where this restaurant is or how their food is. I just want to appreciate this little glimpse into someone else's life.

The previous owner also left a newspaper clipping of a jumble puzzle. My grandmother does the little jumble puzzles from the newspaper every morning. That makes me smile.

I like books presents almost as much as I like books.

That's so fun... I love finding things that other people stuck in books. It makes me wonder what prompted them to put it in there... did they ever finish the book? Were they just looking for a way to get rid of a piece of scrap paper? Were they going to come back later and write something down from the book? Love it.

I don't think I've ever gotten a book present before. Hrm..I think I might have to start hitting up more used book sales.

When I was in Rome I found a ticket to the 1976 World Open in a library book. Someone must've been using it as a bookmark. I left it in for the next lucky person who checked out the obscure theatre section.
