As I was checking out the book, I found a St. Benedict Prayer Card as a bookmark, and it seemed cooler than the book, so I put this in my pocket but put the book back. Was this stealing? It wasn't what they were selling, but it would be different than taking a post it note out of the book, since this holds more value. Please be honest, did I sin?

When you find things in a book -
best to buy the book & contents.

Bibles are worth flipping through just to see what the former owner had left in them. Most people do put personal items in their bibles and sad to say when they die the children do sometimes donate them to thrift stores. If it's an india paper bible (becoming rare) it could be a good investment, (if you need a incentive to buy a bible for the prayer cards).

India paper, also known as bible paper or oxford paper, measures a 1,000 pages per inch, so as to make a compact bible, and usually are bound in leather.

As far as if it's a sin or not its hard to say but it's definitely dishonest in my opinion
Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!
