The Book Thief

Books by Charles Bukowski, Jack Kerouac, Paul Auster, William S. Burroughs, and Don DeLillo are frequently stolen from bookstores, but Melville House’s Claire Kelley reports that the books most likley to be stolen from a library are books about “pregnancy care, dream interpretation and witchcraft.” Also, books by Stephen King. Stealing from libraries is particularly sad because the books are free to check out with a library card, and yet it happens.
