Kindness Bandit: Library Sneaks (Bonus: Update on Big Project)
Have you ever found somebody's notes in a book that you've bought at a garage sale or used bookstore or one that you've checked out from the library? Usually the notes are kind of dull, perhaps taken for a class. I love finding a book with passages that have been underlined. I contemplate the passage, wondering why it was chosen by a mysterious reader from the book's history.
Today's Kindness Bandit was inspired by that very idea. It just so happens that I have several research books checked out through inter-library loan. The books are from Indiana, Colorado, Utah, New York and more.I thought this would be a great opportunity to spread the Kindness Bandit across the U.S. Instead of marking the pages of a library book I inserted some sticky notes on which I had written various proverbs and quotes that I like. Now, when I return the books they will carry little messages of inspiration. Who knows, maybe the notes won't be found for a decade or more!
