I Found This…

…inside my The Unbearable Lightness of Being that arrived today. There’s something so enchanting about finding messages in books, it’s like the book as a piece of literature tells a story, but then the book as an object also tells its own story. I think that’s why I love used books so much. I found a cinema ticket from 1996 inside Youth once which made me think about who it was who had read that book before me and what they were like and how they spent their life inbetween reading Coetzee.

I hope the recipient of The Unbearable Lightness of Being found it thought-provoking, interesting and inspirational as the person who gave it to them intended. And I hope I do too.

    Oh I love getting used books and seeing messages! It makes it so personal and gives you insight into someone’s life. I love especially old books with messages from back in the day, very fascinating.
    Thanks for sharing!
