I have heard it said that people like to stash money in bibles. Seems like a good thing to check out the used bibles in the thrift stores. I haven't ever found any, tho.

best personal find: ticket stub from Graceland

(not a book) but a former co-worker of mine once found a sheet of acid in a used fairport convention LP.

found a NYC ticket stub in a book I got here in Denver

otherwise, never really much aside from coffee stains or things that resemble boogers of a bygone era

lots of bookmarks, a grocery store receipt once with a phone number on the back of it - tried calling it but it was disconnected

I found a few family photos taped to the blank pages of the hardcover booklet that came with the Dock Boggs CD I bought. there's a (1950s?) polaroid of a young couple standing in front of a fireplace, a polaroid (also '50s?) of two boys and two middle aged ladies on a porch, and a color photo (1980s or '90s?) of a family (mom + dad and four kids) sitting on one side of a kitchen table. there's also a sentimental note from "Ron, Jr." to his brother Bill. all that stuff must've really hurt the resale value of the CD, because I got it for ≈$8 at a time when copies were going for ten times that much on Amazon.

I would've been more impressed if the ppl in the photos were spooky Depression-era southerners. they look pretty normal as far as I can tell.

in a library book I found one of those fake dollar bills with an angel in the place of the dead president and cutesy details like "Jesus Christ paid for all debts, public and private". I was disappointed that it wasn't actual money.
