about things in books

I’ve found all sorts of things in all sorts of books, haven’t you? A receipt. A letter. A bookmark. A wrapper. A flower. A train ticket. A glimpse into the random doings of another person, leaving you to wonder who they were, what they were doing. leaving you to marvel at the chaotic universe around us…

thingsinbooks.com is the place to collect the things, and wonder together.

People from all over the world are taking pictures of their things and uploading them to thingsinbooks.com – take a look at the column of recently added things on the right.


We launched on 13 July 2008, and we’re adding new features all the time.

At the moment:

  • You can upload your things (including up to five images, a short description and some keywords, or “tags”)
  • You can comment on other people’s things
  • When you’re logged in, you can rate things


Coming soon:

  • You will be able to edit your own things.
  • You will be able to see all things a particular user has found
  • You will be able to bookmark particular things
  • (what else would you like?)


who are you?

I’m just this guy, you know?
