Hidden treasure: Store owners find the forgotten inside pages of books


Anonymous Patron writes "Check out Store owners find the forgotten inside pages of books, on Linda Schnelbach and Katherine DeLoach, owners of Linda's Used Books, in CA. After more than 20 years in the used-book business, Schnelbach and daughter DeLoach said they know that between the pages there can be some unintended surprises.

Dried flowers, love letters, post cards, family photos, money and cards are just a few of the things local librarians, used-book lovers and bookstore owners find. They are mementos placed inside and long forgotten. "


I remember once I was checking books in when I was a page at the public library in high school, and I found my ex-boyfriend's checkbook tucked inside a book. Good thing I'm honest! :-)
