    I used to find dollar bills and old essays people shoved into old textbooks they resold at the college bookstore.

    I once found a handwritten note inside a library copy of Jeff VanderMeer’s City of Saints and Madmen instructing me to search for a second coded note hidden in another library. Who knows what fantastic journey I might have embarked on had I followed it up, but I returned it intact.

    At our local borders, we had some psychic vampire group that puts cards about their site and… ya know… their whole energy sucking lifestyle in books in the occult section.

    I love Where’s George and when I have a few moments, i log in bills on the site then write on them with the wheresgeorge.com URL. (Shhh, don’t tell anyone.) I want to buy their little rubber stamp to make it easier.
