Library book overdue by 123 years (via @mswainwright)

A pleasant read about a book borrowed in 1888 friday link from the Guardian's The Northerner blog. It invokes a more relaxed time...

I do not think we will need the book back, I do not think anyone even looks at our books in the reading room anymore, they are just there for old times' sake.
