Books cost less than coal by the pound in England

England is suffering from the coldest winter in years. And some smart geezers have learned that thrift shops sell heavy old books for less than the price of coal.

The interesting thing about this is that just today I was looking at a box of old hardbound books in the garage and thinking that I really should just burn them in the woodstove or start putting them in the trash a couple at a time so as not to make the trash bags too heavy.

hat tip to Greg Pollowitz of National Review who posted about the book burners on NROs Planet Gore blog.
