donated a book and placed a note inside for someone hopefully to find
Completed this 4/1/2022.

I returned my book to the library where I left a note for someone.

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!!!!
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.
Little message inside.
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. :D
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 :)
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.

Keep reading,

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!

I left a note in a book before bringing it back to the library :)
Just so happens I ended up with a Titletrader request, so I slipped a note in the middle of the book telling the person they were awesome and that their hair looked great.

Dear whomever this may concern,

Life is like a book, it will always have a beginning and an end, but it is up to you to revel in those happy moments, smell the roses and I know it sounds cheesy but live, laugh and love. seize every moment and I know that big fight with your rents may seem like the end of the world but think in 5 years will you even recall what the fight was about, who started and so on?

I created these bookmarks and slipped them into random books at the library!

Note written - 3 inspirational messages

Try get to shop before it shuts tonight
I have left notes inside people's books but I don't think they can be considered inspirational... haha
I combined this with the write a love letter prompt and made a The World Needs More Love Letters glamourbomb and stuck it in a book at the library. I'm not sure how often the book gets checked out, but I figured if someone did read it it was a fitting book to stick it in. :)
Some of the books for my "get 20 recommendations and read them all" challenge I get from the library. This is a golden opportunity to leave inspirational notes for strangers, wouldn't you say? Instead of a note I leave a hand made bookmark with a quote about reading (the challenge doesn't say what I should inspire people to do, so I try to inspire them to read and live).
I left three notes in three different books that we have stacked up for soldiers to take. 7/4/2013
Will leave the note in my favourite page of Jane Eyre (my favourite novel) in my favourite book shop - just need to figure out what to write now
"She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her away, she adjusted her sails."

"Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on it's ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing that it is stupid."

Note written, just need to distribute it now
Here's one note, I'm going to put others too inside books.
Dear avid reader,

You’re Awesome for wanting to read this book! I thought I might leave you with a few of my favorite quotes:

"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy.' They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life." – Anonymous

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” – Michael Jordan

Avoid the 3 enemies of personal peace: Regret over yesterday’s mistake, inattention over today’s blessings, and anxiety over tomorrow’s problems. – My friend’s FB status

Smile. It looks good on you. :) #DayZeroProject.com

Best wishes,

Library book borrower
