And this is why…

From The Guardian again:

A Canadian woman’s house is collapsing under the weight of the 350,000 books she rescued from a neighbour who was planning to burn them after her bibliophile husband died…

After trying and failing to sell the books online and to used book stores, Raycraft is now having to contemplate burning them herself. “We’re talking 30 tonnes of books. The weight of the books is pulling the house apart,” she said. “We are kind of at a standstill. I work at two jobs. My husband is a full-time student. We have three kids and no time. And no money. And so we’re at the point now where were looking at having to burn some of the books ourselves.”
