stealing, much?

Today in a bookstore there was a lady copying a recipe word for word onto a scrap piece of paper from a book she had simply pulled off the shelf. Does anyone else think that this is really weird? Like, stealing, but not?

Life is... hectic and weird and kinda crap at the moment, so updates will probably be even more sparse than they have been lately. Emails/comments are always appreciated though. :)

Are you safe Madeline???? The news said that there was an earthquake near Tasmania!!!!!!!

Anyway, copying the entire recipe is like stealing.. but not..... the most I copy out of books is their ISBN or a picture reference.

Well, it is kind-of like stealing, but she she could have bought the book, photocopied the recipes she wanted, and then returned it... Now THAT is definitely stealing! Some may say it is smart, but it sure is stealing...

I don't really think its stealing. I'd totally do it if I thought noone was watching...but I guess if I'm worried that people are watching, I must think it's wrong...hmm
