Stealing books from indies

Here's a story from Paul Constant of The Stranger on book thieves. Very funny, really, especially about the link between comic/graphic novel readers and thieving from independent bookshops. It reminds me of the time when, aged twelve or so, I waited outside a large comic shop in the Phoenix shopping centre, in the university area in Manchester when, all of a sudden, my brothers comes speeding out, with a Spiderman comic in his hand. A second behind him was the guy from behind the counter. He was caught and then arrested! He still reads them!
