Description
By day, Michael Popek works in his family's used bookstore. By night, he is the voyeuristic creative force behind www.forgottenbookmarks.com, where he posts online the abandoned objects he has found within the stacks, from love letters to 200-year-old receipts. Forgotten Bookmarks is a scrapbook of Popek's favorite finds—a fascinating and surprising journey through the personal ephemera of widely varied lives, some quite normal (a cutout bookmark of a sleepy reader and the imprint "My eyes tired here," advertising an optometrist) and some extraordinary (an 1895 photo labeled "J.W. Teasdale, St. Louis MO," whose daughter Sara won the first Pulitzer Prize for poetry 23 years later).
