We actually did 100 notes as a challenge at church for how to impact the world. We left 100s of post it notes in books at mckays!!!!
Two books are going to the charity shop today... they both have a note like this inside them...
My graduating second-grade students in my ESL class asked for different series of books and I wrote notes for each of the students in their books.
I stopped by Barnes and Noble on my way to work today and left an inspirational note in this book.
Placing the note in the book without anyone noticing was the challenge. Hopefully someone finds it.
Dear Beautiful Random Stranger,
You know you are beautiful don't ya? .. If you have any doubts just look inside your heart, think of something beautiful like a butterfly fluttering through the air landing on the prettiest flower .. smile .. your smile lights up your face .. look at the beautiful stranger in front, behind, opposite, beside you .. let them feel your smile and they will smile too .. now they are thinking a beautiful thought .. maybe they are having a bad day, they are tired from the stress of school, their job or from life itself, your smile has just given them a little lift to their day and taken their weary thoughts away to another place just for a moment but its a beautiful moment .. you did that .. see how beautiful you are!
Decorated with smiley faces, flowers and butterflies .. I left the note in an autobiographical book about a psychic I have never heard of and never read, it came through my door one day, I didn't buy it or ask for it so I decided to pay it forward and left it on my local bus.
Left a note in a book at the hotel we stayed at, in Stockholm.

A simple quick positive message put out into the world, roughly once a week. (No playing catch up.)
Placed inside One Million Lovely Letters by Jodi Ann Bickley (Library book from Taunton Library, Somerset, England).
It lies in a Library in Perth, in the philosophy section, but it'll be a while before its found I reckon.
At the library in a Dutch self help book.
I put the inspirational note in one of these books. I hope it blesses the person who finds it.
I did this when I studied for my concept paper in the library and quietly slipped the note so the librarian or the students can see it obviously.
Left in a copy of Me Before You @ Waterstones, Kensington, London
I finally did it!
at the Illiad bookshop. Catcher in the Rye was the winner
Added notes to the following library books:
1. Ransom Riggs - "Hollow City" (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children #2)
I have placed the note in the book, and walked away leaving it to be found on a library shelf. It is fun imagining the smiling surprise on the stranger's face when they come across it. It is the little, happy surprises that make a day special.
Never let anyone's opinions about your dreams,stop you from achieving them.
Keep your chin up,
You're beautiful, even if you don't see or believe it,
Follow your dreams and you'll go far
Believe in yourself because
Where there's a will; there's a way
If you don't feel important, special or loved,
Relax because there's always someone who will and does
Oh, and Congrats on finding this note, you have great taste in books, just like me.
and let your imagination take you into the book

I put it in my favorite book - Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Wrote in a book and dropped it off at Goodwill. Hoping it proves helpful to whoever finds it.
Left a little letter in a book in the Millennium Library on 30th May
Returning this library book today. I have no idea why this goal shows up on the 40 Hardest Things to Complete list, it is not hard. Just do it!
