Things found in books
This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.
This topic was suggested to me by some comments in the Book Talk thread about inscriptions. I was reminded that I have found a number of interesting objects in books, not least have been letters, postcards, cash, announcements (birth, wedding, death), and so on. I have saved some of the more unusual or poignant, such as a letter to an ill WAVE in a VA hospital, circa 1951. One item that I particularly enjoyed finding was a train ticket from 1944 (Pimlico - West Arlington/Route 5 & 33). An FBI warning on the face of the ticket exhorts the ticketholder to report suspicious persons to the FBI and to "Beware of those who spread enemy propaganda! Don't repeat vicious rumors or vicious whispers. Tell it to the FBI."
