A pleasant surprise

When I buy a used book, I sometimes found unexpected bonus between the pages.

Did she make this bookmark by herself so that she can enjoy reading?

I couldn’t help thinking how she became to make this bookmark, what she was thinking while reading the book, that she read it excitedly although she had no special reason.

And imagining how that previous owner of the book, YUMI-chan, (I wonder if she is elementary school girl?) mumbled the lyrics of the song the main character of this book was singing, I did the same, looking up at the night sky from the train window when I finished reading.

(Translators Note: The Book is about a little girl and her mother, who sing a funny song while cooking, the Mother hoping her daughter will keep a happy memory of this song.)
