I'm torn...I'm appalled to see this happen to books, but also envious, wishing I could stop by for a rummage:
Thousands in scramble for free books after Amazon supplier abandons warehouse
The warehouse, whose lease recently ran out, once contained as many as five million books destined to be sold online.
After the lease expired, he firm running the secondhand book business moved out, leaving it full of books.Managers of the industrial estate invited people to help themselves so they can free up space at the site.
Do I wish I could be involved in this feeding frenzy? Of course. Would I still be appalled at the cavalier treatment of the books if I were there? Probably not. I'd be hunting for my own treasures.
Ah well. It's too bad I can't join the madness, but I'm sure my husband is pleased!
