Steal This Book
The Times of London has come out with a list of the most stolen books in Britain. The survey is unscientific, but interesting nonetheless. Don’t forget to read the article before scrolling down to the list. It has some fascinating tidbits on who steals books and why, from people who just can’t afford their favorite book to forklift operator at the HarperCollins publishing plant who had a side business selling books he’d stolen from work. The article also includes a list of the library books most often borrowed in the UK.
