The public library remains a location where market forces lose power and goods are handed over for free

According to a report in a newspaper the other day, a library in Leeds has taken to labelling its novels with a system similar to that used on ready-meal curries. "Hot" reads are those that are so exciting you begin to perspire (not simply a literary fantasy incidentally - I have myself been reduced to moist-palmed anxiety by a good thriller), "medium" reads are "fascinating books you'll find hard to put down" and mild books are "stress-busters, like Emily Bronte".

`Independent' wins Financial Journal award

The Independent was yesterday named Financial Journal of the Year by the Wincott Foundation. This is the second time the paper has won the award, the most prestigious in financial journalism. It is the only paper to have been given the prize twice. The judges praised the Independent's business, city and economics coverage for its campaigning style, judgement, visual impact and regular scoops. The chairman of the judging panel; Professor Ian Morison, dean of social sciences and humanities at Loughborough University, said it had been struck by the balance and strength of the Independent's economics coverage, led by the economics editor Diane Coyle and supported by the columists Hamish McRae and Gavyn Davies. The judges also applauded the paper's "high scoop content", its coverage of important City stories such as the Peter Young affair and its campaigns on issues including the privatised utilities and share buy-backs.
