Things that other people found in books


For everyone who enjoyed Richard’s article about Things Found in Books, you should read the comments from The Chronicle for Higher Education, who ran the story in their paper.
I think my favourite was the first one…

When I attended the same Univ that my Dad had 30 years earlier, he told me to go check out his dissertation. I did and found a $10 bill inside! I called him and told him. He had forgotten that — when he had recently earned his doctorate — he had placed that bill in the library’s copy of his dissertation, just to see if anyone ever read those things. 30 years later, it was still in there. I initialed it, replaced it, and returned the book.

… all I ever find are receipts, what have you found?
