Books Should Never Be Destroyed!

The Chattanooga Newspaper last weekend
 had this article about the UNITED STATES POST OFFICE SHREDDING BOOKS! 

I cannot believe it!
Someone, somewhere can use it!

I just last week purchase some Discard Library Books at the Friends of the Library for only 10 cents each! Talk about a great price, could it pass them up!
AT least, the do not destroy them, they pass them on to someone, somewhere who can use them. 
I can donate them to the Senior Center or read them, craft with them, or donate to a Thrift Shop who will probably sell them for $1.00-$2.00. 

They still are good readable books and Good Stories and I can see where the Library may need more room for new incoming books but Never Destroy a book, please! 

Many of what I got had been on the New York Best Seller List at one time even. 


Take care of these books!

That makes me sick. What is wrong them? They claim to be so broke they could have had a book sale. Shame on them for destroying books.

Oh, God! This is so sad! An old book, what a marvelous thing. Even damaged books, destroyed beyond repair can have a new life and can be transformed in something beautiful! Did they have not hear of Dictionary Art Print?!

Our tax dollars at work by complete and utter idiots. And they wonder why people hate postal employees.
