At least East Village shoplifters still have good tastes in books

Still catching up with the Sunday Times, where I noticed this article about an uptick in shoplifting at bookstores...

Fiction is the most commonly poached genre at St. Mark’s Bookshop in the East Village of Manhattan; the titles that continually disappear are moved to the X-Case, safely ensconced behind the counter. This library of temptation includes books by Martin Amis, Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Raymond Carver, Don DeLillo and Jack Kerouac, among others.
