“Borrowed” Words


I was reminded of this article recently when I was thinking about stolen books. Actually, I was thinking about books that I’ve leant out over the years, which have never made it back onto my shelf. There are so many. I haven’t bothered keeping count.

What an interesting concept though. I can’t imagine why someone would want to steal a book. It seems sacreligious. Books are one thing (amogst others) that I can never seem to throw out…

Anyway, according to the article, the five most stolen books in the states are those by:

1. Charles Bukowski

2. Jim Thompson

3. Philip K. Dick

4. William S. Burroughs

5. Any Graphic Novel

Is there a book you’d consider stealing? What do you think would make our top five?
