Random information on the term “Shoplifting?”:

Book store shoplifting is a problem for book sellers and has sometimes led stores to keep certain volumes behind store counters.

Shoplifters at book stores may be thieves who want the book, or thieves who want to make money by selling the book. Those with systematic resale in mind usually target high-priced books and books that are easily resold, such as academic textbooks. Overall, most books are stolen by people who steal books occasionally, but professionals may steal more books in a single visit. Disaffected young white males may be over-represented among thieves who steal for reasons other than the book’s immediate resale value.

In addition to shoplifting, book stores suffer from pilfering by shipping personnel and from burglary (theft that happens while the store is closed). Book stores also are victimized by thefts of non-book merchandise and other items.

Owners of small, independent book stores find shoplifting particularly bothersome. According to Paul Constant, a Seattle book-store employee, “I know a few booksellers who have literally been driven a little bit crazy at the thought of their inventory evaporating out the door, and with good reason: An overabundance of shoplifters can put bookstores out of business. One local bookstore owner can famously talk about shoplifters with total strangers for hours, with the detail and passion that some people reserve for sexual conquests.”
