Just out of curiousity, what have you all put in the blank for the "As a Reward" line?

$15 for pockets and $20 for the larger Moleskines. Then I usually add something funny: a "Good game," a warm hug, soda/beer, Su Doku, and so on.

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)

Up till now, I've put down $100, but I think, I'm going to start being more creative from now on - partly inspired by this thread.

Something with eternal gratitude for starters ... and beer.

I have a business card taped over the reward blank and wrote "reward for return" above it. As the book gets fuller the reward would probably go up. Twenty bucks and postage is what I think I'd offer.

Juan Kerr says:

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.

My brother gave me mine and simply put:

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.
