BOOK BURNING 2010 STYLE

It seems that rising UK fuel costs have led many cash-strapped senior citizens to begin utilizing a new, inexpensive fuel source: used books.

Note: If this post has inspired you to start burning "book logs," please ask yourself these questions before consigning that book to the fire:

Would any person I know like this book as a gift?

Would any library I use appreciate this book as a donation to its collection?

If the answer to either question is yes, DON'T burn that book!
