31st-Jan-2011 08:28 pm - Cryptic One-Liner
Occasionally, I like to lurk around on /x/ to see if I can find any new images or creepypastas to add to my collection. Well, one day, someone suggested leaving cryptic notes in books-- even going so far as to suggest a "game" in which one note hinted at a book containing another note and etc. Some people posted suggestions for the notes, and I figured I should share my giant list with the people. Only not the 4chan people; I already have the hernias.

Most of these are really just lines taken out of context from songs. Points if you can name them without searching! The ones with the asterisks are ones I swiped off 4chan, having met my criteria for creepiness.

 If only I had photos of the things I've left in books. 
Over the past month I very happily found a bookmark in my copy of Les Fleurs du Mal. Apparently someone in Spokane had tucked it into the book upon purchasing it and then later sold it to the the little small town new and used bookstore that I bought it at. 

Earlier this year, however, I decided to create a club at my university in Colorado and publicized by leaving bright magenta post-its with the title of said student organization, "The Colorado Society of Creative Eccentrics", in a variety of books throughout different sections of the library. I only wonder when people will find them all. I'm sure librarians have picked a lot of them up by now, but I can't help but think that maybe a couple of years down the road I'll get an e-mail in the inbox of the account I set up for the club from someone who's interested in the organization. 
I would think it was cool if I found that in my book ^_^

Temp layout by premade_ljs.

I don't like using layouts that I haven't edited a little bit, so I'll probably mess with this or another some time.

Ah, it seems I'm not the only one who found this interesting. :3

Like here.

This is similar.

For things people found in books.

Though, this worries me (scroll down to 'Patron mutilation'). How are post-it notes comparable to actually writing in a book? Loosen your buns (that can go two ways xD ), people. Maybe because it's a university library?
