I guess the heart & the octopus here are so-so, especially given that the heart couldn’t be identified. The rest seem pretty predictable, not as lost property but as the kinds of objects that might be selected from the category. I believe I’ve had cause to complain about this before. Lists of genuinely bizarre objects found in public places, please. & let’s have something weird, even if you have to make it up.
Reading: Born to Run by Christopher McDougall, it’s good. Thanx Lara & Julian for that. & thanx Ruth & Will for recommending The Lost City of Z by David Grann & Ground Control by Anna Minton, both of which fit snugly with my obsessions (in fact childhood memories of the 1950s fad for Fawcett’s doomed expedition to Z may lie behind that whole entradista thing).
