The article reminded me of a book I own, with a great title The Man who loved Books too much, pity I don't know anybody who fits that title

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Man-Who-Loved-Books-Much/dp/1594484813

It is an interesting read.

Guardian article on book thefts, a certain Professor's books get nicked a lot in Oxford.

"Culprits come in all shapes and sizes. Drake the Bookshop in Stockton-on-Tees has had only one title stolen in its two years of operation: fantasy novel The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, swiped by an 80-year-old woman with a Zimmer frame"

This made me laugh. I'm surprised any books have been stolen in Stockton. Reading is not the strong point, there...
