I checked out a copy of Stephen King’s book Pet Sematary from my local library, and found this note on the inside front cover:
I love it when you’re reading a Stephen King novel — you sleep closer to me at night.
So — a present for both of us.
Isn’t that the cutest thing ever? I wish Bill had given a last name, because I would love to have some way to reach out to him / his family and see if they realized this note was inside the book when they donated it. If the note makes me smile this much — me, a stranger not even born yet in 1983 — I can’t imagine how much it would mean for its original writer or recipient to see it now after all those years.
