B@@K NOTES :: I Don't Know What This Is.

Shot at Ormond Beach, FL
When I read a  book I take a blank sheet of paper and 
fold it into quarters then use that as a bookmark. Then i'll make notes on the bookmark of words I don't know or that I like, or that I want to know more about. Sometimes the mark comes up empty, sometimes I'll fill it across all four sides and the back. I found a bunch stashed in a desk drawer. In most cases I have no idea what books they're from but I thought I'd post them for your entertainment. Assuming you exist, of course.
