Have you ever given someone a book as a present but first you scribbled a personal note inside?
It could end up on The Book Inscriptions Project.

Found at the Arlington, VA Library sale. October 2005.
The Book Inscriptions Project is trying to collect as many book inscriptions as possible from all around the world so they can put up a new one every day on their website.
All you have to do is scan any inscriptions you’ve found over the years, send a pic of the book cover, and describe the details of how, when and where you found the book. The Project will post the best ones.
Remember a posting I did entitled “Yorkshire Speak” where I mentioned that everyone’s favourite Yorkshire poofs sent me a Yorkshire-English dictionary?
I am so tempted to send the inscription to The Book Inscriptions Project.
If only that dictionary were a “found” book as it looks to me like they’re just looking for books you’ve found by chance.
I found it in my mailbox. Does that count?
