When you check a book out from the library in Philadelphia, the circulation desk slips a receipt between the pages of one of the books. I often find someone’s old receipt tucked in the pages of my new library book. It could be an interesting way to get new ideas for books to read, or just a look at what other people are reading. For example, in the pages of Cormac McCarthy’s “All the Pretty Horses” the previous lendee had checked out:
- All the Pretty Horses
- Facebook Marketing for Dummies by Paul Dunay.
I don’t plan on putting that book on my “to-read list” and I can also imagine that it is probably a book that Mr. McCarthy would never read.
