(Newser) – An associate professor of English at an Ontario university lent her copy of a textbook to one of her students five years ago and never saw it again. That is, until she recently ordered a replacement copy on Amazon ... and her old copy arrived, complete with her name and the date written in her handwriting on the title page. "I was stunned," Eugenia Zuroski tells Mashable. She notes that it's particularly "uncanny" because the book is "about shopping practices and how consumer markets encourage us to feel closely attached to the things we buy." Her astonished tweet about the experience, which includes a picture of the signed title page, has since gone viral.
