We won this book in a charity raffle at a gig on Valentine’s Day, and I got a big cheer when I went up to collect it. I was even more pleased when we found this amazing dedication inside. At first I assumed it was a present from a creepy older guy to a woman he had designs on; but, when I read to the end and saw a woman’s name, it took on a more poignant overtone.
I bartend at a restaurant and worked a private party for an OB/GYN group. They left these notes behind on a table. Some of them I can’t understand or make out. My favorite note by far is “Masturbating vigorously on the basement floor.”
I found this while shelving Teen books at the library where I work. The fluorescent yellow caught my eye as it was sticking out of a copy of Dramarama by E. Lockhart. It particularly made me chuckle because I imagine the first writer trying to use “Bookworm!” as an insult only to receive this comeback, which I think would pretty effectively shut him or her down. Don’t mess with us bookworms!
Our 10-year-old is becoming a little man so to help explain all the changes, we got some books out of the library. In this one book about puberty, he found these notes from a previous borrower, each sticky note placed at a page with the corresponding information. I wonder if Dad agreed with Mom. And I love how she signed it “Love, Mom.”
