One Man's Trash...

I admit it, I have been known to pick up a discarded book from the sidewalk on occasion. The Times this morning tells us how books have become the new 'recyclables' for some of the city's homeless and down and outs. No suggestion that these budding entrepreneurs are reading the books they collect from rubbish and recycling, but they do trot down to The Strand and cash them in. Sometimes they get lucky, and relationships count in this game: One resourceful chap received $600 for a set of leather bound books.
