Bought a brand new book, read it in a few hours, and then still in brand new shape, I stuck it in an envelope and dropped it off at the library so they could add it to their stacks.
Inside the envelope was an anonymous note, declaring my intention for them to add it to their collection and my reasons for doing so. It was in fine condition, brand new, perfect spine, beautiful corners, no smudges or fingerprints.
Library has volumes 1-6 of this series, which I borrowed and enjoyed immensely. So on my own I purchased, read, and then donated volume 7 to them, figuring they'd be pleased as punch to have it for free -- having volumes 1 through 6, surely they were planning on acquiring this one anyway -- and that it would be processed and shelved in a matter of days.
Four weeks later, it's still not in their catalog, not even in a "currently processing/on the way" status. I bet they just threw it in the trash or sent it to the Salvation Army. Those clueless fucks! Random act of kindness for the season wasted.
i work in a library and it sometimes takes them 3-4 months to process books, if that makes you feel any better
i'm wondering if you gave them vol. 7 of the dark tower series though, they might have thrown it away out of spite

If they can live without Undo's book, they can certainly do without my withholding.
There will never be a time when I am not outraged at the amount of money the government steals from me every pay period.

Still waiting for Slackmo to delete this thread.
