Real books are better than e-books because sometimes you find conversations written in the back of them.

Used book conversation

This conversation appears to be between several women, at least one of whom is in the military. There’s talk of a ring and a baby and seems to have been written while they were on a trip, presumably driving or flying.

I find these things super interesting, even though there’s no great revelations or anything. It changes, albeit slightly, how I take in the book while reading it, knowing something, however small, about those that have read it before and where the book has been.

This book I found in a Little Free Library up the street from my apartment in San Diego. If you’re not familiar with LFLs check out their site and see if there’s any in your town. They’re a great resource for anyone who loves books.
