And did they also steal from the collection plate?

According to a filler in yesterday's Asheville Citizen-Times, the Bible is not only the world's best-selling book, but also the world's most shoplifted book. ("" is cited as the source for this.)

To my knowledge, we've never had a Bible stolen from Accent on Books. But a few years back we did evidently have someone swipe a Book of Common Prayer. It was a boxed gift edition: we found an empty box back in the prayer book section and when we checked our actual inventory against what we should have had, sure enough we were one prayer book short.

I don't think I'd want that thief's karma.
