Over the past decades of browsing and buying used books, I'd found many interesting stuff used as bookmarks inside those books.
They are brochures; envelops; airline, bus, and train tickets; lottery tickets; Christmas cards; name cards; postcards; photographs; sales receipts; used postage stamps; and bookmarks (of course) among several others.
I have heard of absent-minded readers who'd conveniently used banknotes as bookmarks but, being a keen paper money collector myself, I don't have any luck yet in finding one so far.
You can never know some of those weird but interesting stuff readers tucked into their books as bookmarks. Have you ever heard of the story about someone who'd found a piece of ham bacon left behind as a bookmark?
