According to the Genius Town blog, the English are up to their old tricks again. Except this time, instead of expanding their empire across the globe to establish everlasting colonial dominion, the citizens of Westbury-sub-Mendip in Somerset, England have stuffed 100 books into a tiny phone booth. It’s a community library! But will imperialism ever end? (The BBC has a few more details.)

Size does matter.......small is best.....always.:-0)
