Mine flucuates depending on how much cash I have on hand. I write down a numbe rthat corresponds to what I have in my pocket when I start the book. I have also included that I will write a poem for the person who returns it, or make them a custom picture frame. I want to try to grab their curiosity as well as their greed. (CoryQ)

I must confess, I've done little more than glance, and then ignore this section of the Notebooks. Maybe I have little faith in human nature and never expect a return if I did happen to lose it.

If, however, I did complete this part of the book, I would reward the returnee with ... Mmm, this is a difficult one. I'm not really in a financial position to go handing out money willy nilly, but I would be so grateful, that I would insist on something, although I have absolutley no idea what.
Zack Sheppard PRO 9 years ago
My brother gave me mine and simply put:
"my gratitude."

I actually lost it, the number was out of order and the person who found it sent a letter. When I picked it up I gave him a gift certificate to a restaurant in town to say thanks anyway.
