How a HarperCollins library book looks after 26 checkouts (pretty good!)

Shocked by the news that HarperCollins has told libraries that its ebooks will now self-destruct after 26 checkouts because that's how long a print book lasts, these librarians give us a tour of some of HarperCollins's books in their collection that have circulated much more than 26 times. They even have a copy of Coraline with a lifetime guarantee!

The HarperCollins editions of my books are damned hardy items, I must say. I know whereof I speak — I've done time repairing books at busy circulating libraries and I'm happy to report that the HC editions of my work are robust and fine examples of bookbindery.

HarperCollins 26+ checkouts

(Thanks, a librarian!)
