Good for him... I wish I had known about it before hand as I have started collecting old books a few years ago after I got a original copy of 'Birth of a Nation' and couple older illustrated bibles...

Got them from a church auction up in northern Missouri for a dollar each... Dang Mormons snag most of them..

That was a great plan, now that he made his point. all the books that were burnt can't be read. real smart.

If he wanted to sell more books he should have found out where the fiber optic cables were run and broke out a shovel and a little bit of elbow grease.

Man, I hope this guy didn't roast all the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books.

Thanks Wayne, you really made your point. Books are the only media that people are able to read. Newspaper, magazines, or even the ABC internet article describing your protest require no reading skills at all.

It is truly a shame that people now days don't even know how to read. You even burned a bound report from the Fourth Pan-American Conference in 1910. Back in my day before video games and satanic rock and roll, all the kids spent their summers reading the Pan-American conference reports.
