Have you ever wanted to desperately read a book only to find it’s sold out or not in stock at the bookshop or library? Well, it seems this may have happened to one lady who broke into a St.Petersburg library one night, local news portal Fontanka reports.

After smashing a window, the women entered the building before leaving with a single copy of a book - but no one knows which one. The rogue reader was soon apprehended by the police.

Luckily for the intruder, the library was still in a festive mood and decided to forgive her - after she returned the book of course.
