Hi Frank,

Recently, you posted an email about someone who had discovered a secret in a book that ultimately brought comfort in a time of need. After so many years of reading about how people hide their own secrets in physical books, I have to admit I had never once opened one in a bookstore.

After a particularly rough couple of days last week, I was compelled to get up and go straight to Powell’s. I told myself I had to keep having just a little bit of hope, and that it would be a sign if I found a secret. I sat on a stool in front of of the shelf, and opened one book after another. I was ready to give up, but there was one book left.

To my surprise, as I flipped through I found a hand written note. Just the simple act of holding it in my hands renewed my faith. Thank you so much for building this community that truly brings people together and reminds us that we are not alone.

I have been reading post secret for over 10 years now, and I hardly ever miss a Sunday. Back when I was 19, I was going through a nasty divorce with my abusive ex-husband, and post secret really helped me get through some of those really hard times. Well today, you posted a secret of someone who bought all four books and sent them to random people… well I’ve done that!

Back in 2009, I believe. At the time, there were only 3 books, and I just went online, found 3 random people and shipped them out. I always wonder what happened to those books and if they made it to those people. I wonder if I helped save them in the midst of their chaotic life like so many other people saved mine.
