Welcome back Mr. Wyndham

So I spent last night cataloguing books. It certainly went a lot quicker than last time - I managed 360 in the past 4 or so hours. That's just over 25% of the whole lot and about half of the books that were there. We've even ended up with more books than when we started as a bunch of supposedly missing books just weren't put in fully, so John Wyndham has lost the top spot of most "stolen" author.


He would have deserved the title too.

We would? *is probably missing something here?*

I think, if we had better tracked what books we had way back in the past, that Mr. Pratchett would be the clear winner of the title as I believe we lost loads of his books back when they were kept in (what I've been led to believe is known as) the societies' cupboard (although most people think it's the tech crew cupboard?)

Just that John Wyndham's books are well worth reading, and hence stealing.

I can however see why no one would want to actually pay for a Pratchett book!

Yeah, the library was certainly a lot easier to browse in those days. It's a shame we're unlikely to ever get enough secure space on campus to be able to have them out on shelves like that again. But hopefully the online library is the next best thing.
