Found in Used Books, #1

with 4 comments

I bookmarked this post from The Guardian about a week and half ago, and you should check it out. It’s about “The private life of books”, a concept I love, and a series of letters found inside an old copy of Isaac Asimov tales.

It also leads nicely into an idea I’ve had a while for a feature in which I post pictures of things found in used books, of which I have a steadily growing and admired collection.

So here’s the first: a Reggie Jackson baseball card found in a copy of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, by D.H. Lawrence.
