Top ten most frequently stolen books

For the Guardian, Alison Flood compiled a list of the top 10 most frequently stolen books.

One book on the chart:
JK Rowling: Harry Potter

Rowling's reluctance to grant interviews as well as her donations to the Labour party has meant that the creator of Harry Potter has become an easy target - so it seems pertinent to remember that a considerable percentage of Rowling's income has helped to support charities such as Comic Relief, One Parent Families and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Great Britain. Do you bookstealers feel guilty yet?
Read about another title on the list.

Harry Potter is also apparently a favorite of the detainees at Guantanamo.
