This story, courtesy of Megan at Bookdwarf, comes as a welcome respite from the sad news of the last couple of weeks. If the American Booksellers' Association has a good citizenship award, Harvard Bookstore could be a shoe-in.
After a Harvard grad student's Amazon package containing two books about Peruvian anthropology were stolen out of his lobby, he went around to some local shops that buy back students' textbooks. Just a few hours later, the bookthief strolled into the shop, looking to unload the loot and the kindly booksellers offered a low price. As the grad student said,
"They basically paid the ransom on the books and turned them back over to me. So, it was very kind of them."
