A complete nutter out of Alabama has reportedly been jailed and fined for stealing over $5,000 in library books [ai.com], The Anniston Star :
“Titles of the books police and library officials say Smith stole include the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella, The Art of Brazilian Cookery, by Dolores Botafogo, and a number of murder mysteries.”
This makes absolutely no sense (not the titles but the act itself). It doesn’t sound like she was turning the books around to make a profit but keeping them for her own collection. And I wonder if she removed the library labels or kept them. Will her library rights be revoked for life? A library thief leaves me with so many questions. At any rate though, stealing from the library is as bad as stealing from your own grandmother and/or drinking unicorn’s blood.
