I was surfing the net this week, when I found a post about funny, cute, and weird things found in books. Whether it be at a garage sale, or in a library book, a previous owner or reader of the book had used something special or different to mark their page.
Check some of them out:

Why was I looking for stuff about hidden book treasures?
I have my own story to tell.
One afternoon while sitting in a school library, I had a box of new books at my feet. I was visiting from Beattie & Forbes Booksellers and had just shown the librarian through the selection I had for the month.
While she went to check something on her computer, I picked up a book at random and absently ran my thumb across the pages, flicking through it while I waited. To my surprise, I saw something as the pages flicked by - and this is what I found.
May you be blessed with everything good - peace, love, happiness, good health and prosperity!
Who left it there? I never found out of course.
I still have this note which I keep in my office, and I still have the $5 Australian Dollars which is worth much more to me as a good luck charm than the $ worth.
There's so many funny, clever, inspiring, thoughtful, things out there about books, reading and writing - I thought I'd have somewhere to save and share the best ones....
