A young reader found an abandoned book on the side of a road in the U.K. 65 years ago, but she just now returned it to the library. The book, titled, Forgotten Submarine, was found by Jill Davies in 1957. She recently re-discovered it on a shelf collecting dust and decided to return it to its original home. She wrote in a letter to the Portsmouth City Council, “As an avid reader, there was no way I was going to return the book until I had read it — which I did, and thoroughly enjoyed. But the one thing I never got around to doing was taking it to the library.” Davies was concerned about late fees after all this time, but the Portsmouth Library waived them.
