This is an origami white mouse for the book “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. It should be obvious why I chose this design if you’ve read the book.
“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be. -Douglas Adams”
Quote is from the author. Just a nice one, nothing to amazing.
And, with that, I am considering this goal complete. :)
Though, I do hope/plan to continue doing this. I just won’t be documenting them.
I hope people enjoy finding them! :D

I made this note an origami dove for the book “A Reliable Wife” because the woman in the book got a pet bird and there is a bird on the cover. I made it white because a lot of story takes place in a north Wisconsin town during the winter.
“There is a loveliness to life that does not fade. Even in the terrors of the night, there is a tendency toward grace that does not fail us. -Robert Goolrick”
And, this quote is by the author from a different book of his.

I made this note an origami fox for the book “Ella Minnow Pea” because it has a lot to do with the pangram “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”
“A word in earnest is as good as a speech. -Charles Dickens”

I made this note an origami white rabbit because it was going into “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and I put a note in it with a quote by Lewis Carroll.
“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others. -Lewis Carroll”
The White Rabbit.

The White Rabbit secured in the pocket, waiting to be found.
I made this note an origami heart because it is close to Valentine’s Day and because you can open it and write something inside. And, I made it yellow because I put the note into the book “Dandelion Wine”. :)
I just put a nice quote in this one:
“To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world. -Heather Cortez”
So, I figure I will mark this done when I have put either five or ten different notes into books that I return. But, I hope to do more than that.
I’ll probably use post-it notes so that they don’t fall out.
I really like this goal.
I’ve found things in books before, but I don’t know if it was intentional or on accident. I hope the people who find my notes know I left them for them. :)
