I love books. I've lost count how many I now have. Its too expensive buying them new so most of mine come from charity shops, car boot sales or second
Today my Mum had to go back to the village I grew up in for an appointment and, seeing as I barely go out these days, she asked if I'd like to go out.
So she picked me up and I hobbled around the local charity shops and had a look at the old place.
In one of the shops all the paperbacks were 50p each so I picked Hunter S Thompsons Kingdom of Fear. It should be an interesting read and was in good
condition. Inside was one US dollar and it got me round to thinking. I usually find bookmarks like postcards, shopping lists, bus tickets...the usual
stuff. A good one I found was a lovely child's drawing of the Pink Panther, lovingly coloured in then covered with clear plastic. Probably a gift to
an older relative, maybe Grandma or Grandpa.I wonder if the owner now misses it or even if they're still alive.
Funny how these little things strike a chord within.
The best one I found was in a CD. It was a copy of The Wall by Pink Floyd. There was only one disc but it was 50p and I thought there's no harm in
having a spare. The booklet seemed a bit lumpy so I took it out to straighten it up and inside were two twenty pound notes!!!
I was broke at the time so that was an amazing stroke of luck and I'm wondering, what about you lot?
Have you found anything cool in anything you've bought second hand?
I'd prefer to hear about your finds in books or CDs but if you've got a good fnd you want to post, here's the place.
Cheers in advance.
