"It's happened to all of us: we're reading a book, something interrupts us, and we grab the closest thing at hand to mark our spot. It could be a train ticket, a letter, an advertisement, a photograph, or a four-leaf clover. Eventually the book finds its way into the world-a library, a flea market, other people's bookshelves, or to a used bookstore. But what becomes of those forgotten bookmarks? What stories could they tell? By day, Michael Popek works in his family's used bookstore. By night, he's the voyeuristic force behind www.forgottenbookmarks.com, where he shares the weird objects he has found among the stacks at his store. Forgotten Bookmarks is a scrapbook of Popek's most interesting finds. Sure, there are actual bookmarks, but there are also pictures and ticket stubs, old recipes and notes, valentines, unsent letters, four-leaf clovers, and various sordid, heartbreaking, and bizarre keepsakes. Together this collection of lost treasures offers a glimpse into other readers' lives that they never intended for us to see. "--… (mais)

If you have ever borrowed a book, gotten something from a library, or purchased from a used book store, you likely know the thrill of finding someone has read this book before you, whether a glossy printed bookmark advertising a faraway bookstore or a library receipt offering a peek into another’s reading habits. In this pretty little book based on his blog, Michael Popek, a used book store manager, reproduces some of his most interesting and odd finds, along with the books in which they were found. As to be expected, these range from the mundane (a home improvement shopping list) to the historical (notes from government officials) and the domestic (a son’s dramatic epistle to his mother explaining his need for money). There is a certain voyeurism vibe that comes from reading these, a la Postsecret, especially some of the letters and notes which have no other context.

This is a fun little book to flip through, and if you want to see more, I suggest subscribing to Popek’s blog, http://www.forgottenbookmarks.com/. ( )

Creative, interesting, and fun read. Photo stories of what is left behind in books. ( )

This was an interesting book. It was not a book to actually read, but more one to leaf through and be amazed at what people leave inside a book/use for bookmarks.
I'm happy it crossed my path :-) ( )

Forgotten Bookmarks is a collection of items found in books that Mr Popek has come across in his used bookstore. I enjoyed the letters and postcards, those stories that told a little of the people who read the books. I also loved seeing the covers on the books and have added a few books to my TBR list as I enjoy reading old books.

A quick easy read, more pictures than reading actually so those that might just enjoy a bit of history might also enjoy this - even if they aren't as fond of books as I am. ( )
