I wrote on a piece of paper  then attached on the first inside page of a book that I borrowed from the library :

"To destroy a culture

You do not have to burn books

Just do not call them people. . .

Author: Ray Bradbury"

Thought the quote fit and might be inspirational to the next reader, but I doubt the book is read very often...

I left a note in one of the "Lord of The Rings" books. 

When I went to high school I read them all, it took me 3 years, because I found them SO boring and they just went on and on telling me things I found unnecessary in relation to the story. 

I wrote: "It took me 1,5 years to read this book, because I found it boring. But I did it because it's one of thoses books you just have to read. And now I can say that I did it". 


It was kind of a lame thing to write, but I had some time to kill, so I went to the library to read, and remembered this goal.

I really liked doing this. Felt like I was sharing some secret world with other readers. Really hope to continue this tradition with new notes inside other books.

The book is "Close Encounters of the Third Kind - A novel by Stephen Spielberg." It's the novelization of the movie and one of my favorite science fiction books ever.  The note reads:

"Hi there! We probably have never met, but you obviously have great taste in books and that makes you absolutely awesome! Have a great day!


A guy who likes this book"

I hope it brightens somebody's day just a bit.

I did this alone because I like my solitude in the library. 

I chose this thick medical book and left an encouraging note- as most people are also discouraging me in taking the medical career.

I put a note in the last book of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. 'City of Heavnley fire". I think i just thought that the book deserved so many people to read it and by putting a note in the last book it would totally help them read the series. Should of put a note in the first book... Oh well, it was fun. Really good series btw "The Mortal Instruments"

I left a note in a book in the lower Reference Section of the Gilbreath Library at East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, Tennessee.  This was done in conjunction with my friend, Keith Lee Potter.  The note was more of a joke.

I left four at my local library: 2 long ones, a silly one, and one that just said, "You are beautiful." All of them I left my profile for Bucketlist on, so if you found a note from golden_lily in Ohio, leave me a comment. Because I meant everything I wrote. <3

I left a note in one of the Silver Ravenwolf books at the library notifying the reader of the extreme garbage they would find inside the text.  All of her books are made up hocus pocus that con artists sell and I wanted to be able to note this to whatever idiot decided to actually believe any of it.
