Help from a Stranger

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I left a library book (Ysabel, by Guy Gavriel Kay) in the airline seat pocket on a flight from Madison, Wisconsin, to Minneapolis, Minnesota. A few days ago I went to the library, armed with my checkbook, to pay for this lost volume. When the library clerk pulled up my record she discovered that the book had been returned! I don't know if thanks are due to someone who works at Northwest Airlines, or to a good Samaritan passenger (maybe someone en route home to Madison?) who found my book and returned it to the Madison Public Library, but whoever did it, I am very grateful. Thanks for saving me the cost of a hardback and for making this book available for others to read. What a nice feeling it was to discover this!
