Finding things in books
Sometimes when you buy a book from a second hand store there is something left inside. An old shopping list or a cutting of a review that impressed the reader. In a recent buy I found an old business card acting as a bookmark in an Anthony Powell book. The reader can't have got far the card was left on page 36 but it is a little object that captures the eye and adds a certain something to the experience of buying the book.
