I came across this rather lovely collection of lost book marks - kiddies ones with clowns on, little old ladies' flowers and prayers, joyless corporate giveaways and Celtic metal ones that'd rip your page out soon as look at it. There were punishment bookmarks of stiff leather, flimsy hand-crafted affairs, notes from lovers and postcards from the past.
A colleague of mine once found a twenty pound note marking someone's place between the covers. Another swears she found a rasher of bacon.
What's the strangest thing YOU ever used as a book mark? And can you guess what the other most common item is left in a library (apart from books, obviously?)
