Book Bites

The Curse of Books: What else but the eternal storage question?

You have no idea how disturbed this makes me. It would drive me mad to have books I knew I had but couldn't find. And how can you just "mislay" 9,000 books? I mean, I know the British Library is huge and I'm sure it's chronically short-staffed and -funded, as such places always are, but really! Don't they have demons bound by centuries-gone occultists to guard and retrieve their books? The secret tomes filled with eldritch and profane lore hidden in the basement must be good for something!
