Another book sadly referred to the Book Cemetery. It was killed by Katrina.

Journal Entry 5 by BookCemetery on Wednesday, November 2, 2005
Another victim of the vicious, voracious, vagrant, vengeful, vexing, vile, villainous, violent, viperish, vulgar Katrina; the sodden remains of this dear departed arrived at the Book Cemetery today (Wednesday 02 November 2005) and were immediately cremated for health reasons. A most moving Memorial Service was held in the Crypt of the Chapel of Sighs before a sad and distressed congregation of bookcrossers. The Choir, resplendent in new robes, gave a mournful rendition of the seldom heard hymn "V is for Victory" as the Head Book Undertaker released a flock of white doves. A 21 gun salute was fired from the Parade Ground and the Facility Flags were blown to shreds. The memory of the dear departed was released into the ether in the Nurse's Office as the congregation were being treated for smoke inhalation caused by the fire among the trees started by burning flag remnants drifting about on the breeze. It was a sad, sad day.

The Chief Mourner was retc, who, yet again, was a tower of strength during the whole event. The Management and Staff extend sincere condolences at this sad time, and have not rendered an account, on account of the damage to the Chief Mourner's clothing, vehicle and reputation as a result of this very sad fiasco.
