Found in "The Bookseller of Kabul" by Asne Seierstad, because Americans can't even begin to think about Afghanistan while sober...

I am not making this one up.

I swear on the Jewish Bible that we found this receipt for window tinting in a copy of Bram Stroker's "Dracula." I know that sounds unbelievable, but we did. Did someone put it there purposely as a joke? I don't know. Did a real life dracula take his car into the shop while reading about his forefather? I don't know.

Our first guest submission! From archivist (and drummer) Sarah Norris (, New Music Co-op, etc), remains of squished insect found inside "Texas Court of Appeals Reports, vol VI," 1879, as reported by A.M. Jackson and A.M. Jackson, Jr. Is this an antique bug, or a new bug in an antique book?
