I have 350,000 books...

Shaunna Raycraft, from Pike Lake, Saskatchewan, stepped in when her widowed neighbour began to burn her husband's collection of books. "There was a house floor-to-ceiling with books.

She didn't know how to deal with them so she started to burn them," Raycraft told Canadian national broadcaster CBC.
