Whoops.

I'm doing a book cull and I found this...



It didn't scan too well but the due date stamp says: April 7th, 1983. So it's a bit overdue. Before I saw this, I was ready to fling the book into the charity shop pile but now I just can't. Now I really want to go to Calgary, to that library, walk right up to the desk and, as straight-faced as possible, return it. haha!

I wonder what the fine might be? =:-o

  2. You just wait til Sarah reads this, then you will be in trouble....


    Some libraries have amnesties, when you can hand in your overdue books and spare weapons. The librarians use the weapons on the public who don't take their books back in time.

    A little known fact

  4. Dr. Zhivago to boot! You Rebel you! It's a freaking collectors item by now. One of my favourite books and movies. Then again, I love anything that causes controversy. I wouldn't worry too much about returning it though, the Librarian probably lost her job over it! You could always sell it on EBay.

  5. LOL and oh crap, Mog! Sarah... and she's attending that Librarian/Arms Trading Convention in Chicago.
    Blogging = ass whoopin'.

    As Neil already knows. ;-)

    Bogey, I don't think I actually ever read it all the way through! I think I got frustrated by not understanding a lot of it (was only 14/15?) and watched the film instead. Maybe I should actually read it before I shell out the $3,225 in overdue fines. haha!

  12. So YOU'RE the one they were talking about in Chicago! Watch out, a posse of librarians may be showing up at your door. Oh, right. You live pretty far from Chicago. And the Calgary library already purchased a replacement copy twenty years ago. I guess we'll have to look for another miscreant to pursue.

  13. So, I'm off the hook, Sarah? Whew!

    I still want to return it though. And I will! When I'm ever in Cowtown again.
