Surprise Stash of Sweets Found in Cambridge Library

A book on the shelves of a library at Cambridge housed a sweet secret awaiting any student who cracked it.
 A Newnham College Library stock check turned up chocolate bars stashed in a hollowed out area inside the cover of The Oxford Companion to English Literature by Margaret Drabble, a Newnham alumna.  

Within the hollow area was also message encouraging the treats recipient to replenish the book with more chocolates after they enjoyed their find.

Newnham College spokeswoman Jo Tynan said.

"We do regular stock checks at the library and a student stock taker came across this book last week. It didn’t have any issue numbers on it so she opened it and the inside had been completely hollowed out.” It is not clear whether these two bars are the original chocolates or whether they have been replaced many times over the exam period. 

We don’t know how long the book was there for but we don’t think it was very long."
