Because I enjoyed looking through the book PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives by Frank Warren, I thought I might enjoy Forgotten Bookmarks by Michael Popek.
Well, yes and no. I thought some of the items left in old books were interesting. There were a couple of letters written during the Civil War and a few things that were older than that. I learned a little history from people who were there at the time.
I kept trying to relate the item with the title of the book in which it was found. That didn't work. Just like I do, those people simply took something flat and put it in whatever book they were reading. Or they put a precious keepsake in their favorite book.
If you like checking out the odds and ends of life, this is a book you should pick up. If you want action and a plot, go for something else.
