Concern for Lawrence Wallis

Books can be dangerous, as evidenced by recent words in Printweek

"One of the joys of library research is the byways that beckon from the mainstream to reveal nuggets of enthralling information, usually irrelevant to the prime purpose of enquiry."

I am writing this on a fairly busy afternoon at LifeBytes. They will politely remind me when time has passed and I should stop staring at the screen. Unfortunately such a service is rare in a book library.

Printweek have put in a comments option but there is nothing there at the moment. Suggest something is added just in case the world of books results in social isolation.
