As seen on TV – and elsewhere

About a week ago, we put up a post on our webpage about one of our books getting returned after 90 years. We thought it would be an interesting and amusing way to explain a little about what happens when books are overdue. Little did we know.

The book, “Youth and Two Other Stories” by Joseph Conrad, was published in 1925. Now, I know what you are all thinking; I wonder how much that would be in overdue fees? At twenty cents a day, it seems like the fine could easily have reached over $6,400. But no, the real answer isRead More
