Looters do not take books in England

I found this in a letter in the pages of the New York Times. Interesting.

To the Editor:
During the rioting that gripped England, a bit of telling irony was seen at a shopping mall, in which widespread looting had struck.
Rampaging mobs had broken into virtually every shop there, stealing everything from designer clothing to electronics. One store stood alone, however, its windows intact and its goods untouched.
It was a bookstore, wherein perhaps the best hope for a better future lay ignored.
