I didn't catch any joke about digital copyright. Could you guys just be overthinking it? I mean, all it is as I read it is a joke that they can't catch you if your brain contains the book, only if you possess a copy (physical or digital alike). Hppavilion1 (talk) 17:27, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

One could consider your memory of the book in your mind's synapses to be an electronic copy (of sorts). 16:30, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

The first half of this has happened to me at the library a lot. Like, a LOT. 17:13, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

This might become a thing in libraries, and if that happens, I am not going to step into the library again since that I read books and store the storyline and plot in my mind. I might set off the alarm like what Cueball did here.Boeing-787lover 07:55, 23 June 2018 (UTC) -- Xkcdreader52 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I used to do this all the time when I was in school :P Being at school I didn't always have the readies to buy all the books I wanted to read, so I would go stand in the bookshop and read the books right there! As I'm a voracious reader it didn't take me more than an hour or two to finish a book. --The Cat Lady (talk) 16:03, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Same! I still love going to my local bookstore and reading the new books in my favourite series so that I don’t need to wait months for everyone else in the public library to finish reading it or buying the book. :) (talk) 18:36, 2 February 2024 (UTC)
