A used bookseller in the UK, apparently hit by hard times, walked off and left their warehouse unlocked and available to anybody who walked by. People, of course, took advantage of this opportunity, and began running off with books by the armload. It doesn't appear to be illegal - the books were abandoned by the bookseller, and the owner of the warehouse has invited anybody to help in the cleanup by removing the books for free. Millions of book-lovers around the world are lamenting: "why can't this happen somewhere near me!?"
