  • OP that is not the kind of stolen i meant. what i meant was literalty stolen. as in from the store.
    FACT:If the New York Times were to compile a "Most Stolen Books" list, up near
    the top would be the Beat Generation classics "Howl," by Alan Ginsberg, and
    "On the Road," by Jack Kerouac. Also up there, not surprisingly, would be
    "Steal This Book," the popular '70's hippie guide on how to live for free,
    by Abbie Hoffman.

    And topping the list, in some cities at least, would be none other than the
    Holy Bible itself.

    "It's true, it's absolutely true," says Kevin Finn, the manager at Book
    People, an independent bookstore in Austin, Texas. "The most shoplifted book
    is the Bible."

    Why? "Perhaps people feel the Bible should be free," he says. "The average
    King James Bible with a zipper is about 35 bucks."

  • They are expensive but most churches will give you a Bible for nothing if you don't have one of your own. All you've gotta do is ask!

    I received a free Bible (NT only) from the internet.

  • Stolen? Like from hotels? Well, really those are provided by the Gideons and they would be happy for anyone to take them!!!

    I suspect Barnes & Noble may disagree with you there.
