Eating Books ?!?

Browsing news sources, a Pakistan Daily Times article titled "Eating Books" caught my eye. If this is a new way to learn, it -- sounds like something out of the Thursday Next stories. If it's a way to smuggle books out of libraries, it seems... self-defeating.

The article is either figuratively or wrongly or capriciously titled, as no actual book-eating is involved. But it is an interesting review of book theft problems across centuries and cultures. It seems Pakistani library problems are in some respect no different from Wisconsin problems. It's a small world.

I trust I won't have to eat my words...
