What’s the Strangest Thing You’ve Ever Found Inside A Book?

Atlas Obscura recently posted about strange things found inside books.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever found?

I have found other people’s homework notes, letters and strange bookmarks.  Dead bugs.  Pressed flowers — especially those I’ve pressed myself and forgotten about.  (And my, they bring back memories!)

I think the strangest thing I’ve ever found is a note I wrote myself, decades ago.  I don’t remember writing it at all.  I can’t even remember the context, or recall what I might have been thinking when I wrote it–the handwriting is definitely mine, and the syntax suggests I was very young.  The context also says I was very cynical, too.  That probably means I wrote it as a teenager (the epitome of angst and cynacism).

But, I’m completely blank about why I wrote the observation about human nature.

You?  What have you found?  Share it in comments.
