A book store owner in Missouri is burning his unwanted books!

Tom Wayne, with the eloquence of an American book store owner, explains himself:
“After slogging through the tens of thousands of books we’ve slogged through and to accumulate that many and to have people turn you away when you take them somewhere, it’s just kind of a knee-jerk reaction,” he said. “And it’s a good excuse for fun.”

Yep. That’s what I do for fun… burn some books. I find it extremely hard to believe he couldn’t find anywhere to donate these books. What a waste. Not to mention the smoke being released into the atmosphere probably isn’t good for the neighbours.
