Stealing Books

The Paper Cuts blog has a piece on stealing books.

They are asking: Dear readers, have you ever stolen a book? Post your true confessions here — assuming the statute of limitations has run out.

Not suprising that several of the confessions are about thefts from libraries.

The Paper Cuts blog post is in response to an essay in the Sunday Book Review called Steal These Books

Interesting statistic

From article: Only 40 percent of books that are read are paid for, and only 28 percent are purchased new, said Peter Hildick-Smith of the Codex Group, a consultant to the publishing industry. The rest are shared, borrowed, given away — or stolen.
