•  Book returned 99 years overdue. Stanley Dudek of New Bedford, Massachusetts returned the book, Facts I Ought to Know about the Government of My Country to the library a little bit late – the book was originally due on May 10, 1910. The book was originally borrowed from the library by his mother, and if Dudek had been asked to pay the late fees, at a penny a day, it would have come to $361.35. It would have been amusing if the book had been Tropic of Cancer, but unfortunately, Miller’s novel didn’t come out for another 50 years. [MSNBC/AP]
