you wouldn't?

i have read several books which deserved such a fate. although come to 
think of it i didn't do it either.

I did have some fun once, in one of my own books, pointing out that it's 
actually quite difficult to burn a book. If Hitler had been thinking 
clearly he would simply have allowed them to mildew to death, although I 
suppose that wouldn't have had the necessary drama.
