Bookmark at the Lost and Found

Laura Page, in her blog Literary Legs, wrote about bookmarks and finding interesting things in books which she forgot she had once used as a bookmark. She likes to buy a bookmark too. I do as well, but find them a bit expensive for just a piece of cardboard. When you think of all the free stuff you can stick in a book to mark your page it seems a bit extravagant to spend $5 on a fancy bookmark. You could buy a latte instead!

I’ve found some interesting things people have left in books when I buy a secondhand book or a thrift store book. Most recent was a ticket (never used) to a classical music concert which took place in Toronto.

What have you found in a book, used as a bookmark?

Think of a situation where something really unusual is used as a bookmark. Write about it. Is it lost or found?
