I got a new woodstove last year. Since then, both my church attendance
and my stays at Marriott hotels have increased. The stove seems to prefer
hymnals. I use one of those 25lb rice bags - carefully unthread the top and the
carry-handles are perfect. they hold about 10 copies (which is about all the
rooms you can get into for the $39.95 Late Arrival Special) and the Mexican
cleaning ladies think you're the guy delivering Asian takeout.

If your Spanish is a bit better and more correctly regional, you can just park a
pickup truck in the back at noon, and go have a beer while The Ladies Of The Day
fill it up for the same 40 bux.

There's also your local Thai Temple - which has not only oodles of flammable
material (usually the babblings of Really Ugly Old Guys), but free lunch. Taking
a well-disciplined scout troupe to one can yield nearly 50,000 BTU of
toe-warming material that has no other use in the entire world.

Stock up now - buy more bookselves!  Oh... that was "shelves"...
