    It is outright thievery, and I’m apalled at how some people defend it. “Everything should be free,” they say. No! Thou Shalt Not Steal!!

      Thank you, Joy. I get a daily list of free ebooks and there are generally 30-40 new ones every day of a variety of genres so in theory I need never buy another book again. I also get sent short story collections and writing guides for review (and requests by novelists) but they tend to be newer writers who are keen to get an audience aware of their books. So people don’t need to steal but they always will. There are reports of ‘celebrities’ who have shoplifted despite having the money. There was also a report only this week of a woman who claimed a 5p loaf of bread as hers when another woman went to pick it off the shelf but woman A was waiting until it went down to 1p. There’s nowt so queer as folk which is just as well or we wouldn’t have anyone to write about. :)

    I’ve read about homeowners who found out it was relatives stealing when they installed a camera and store owners who found out that it was trusted customers they’d known for years. Why?

      I guess they do it because they won’t be suspected… like the murderers in most of Agatha Christie’s books. :)
