A man has been labelled a 'murderer' and been disowned by the internet after revealing the horrifying way he stores his long books.
As a way to save space, he cuts his books in half. And as you can imagine it has not gone down well with bookworms.
"Yesterday my colleague called me a 'book murderer' because I cut long books in half to make them more portable. Does anyone else do this? Is it just me?" the man said.
The reaction online was incredibly mixed.
"Downside is that it then becomes possible to lose half a book." one person pointed out.
"There's something simultaneously brilliant and inhumane about this... I'd also be curious to see a bookshelf of yours with lots of butchered books on it." added another.
While others didn't see the big deal...
"I really like this Alex, and am completely ok with it."
