Library Books Save FSU Student by Standing Up to Bullet

Susan Notes:

Something tells us a Kindle wouldn't have been quite as sturdy.

By Katie Zavadski

One lucky Florida State University student escaped unscathed from a Thursday morning shooting rampage in the school's library thanks to his good study habits. Jason Derfuss didn't even notice that he'd been hit until he came home and unloaded his backpack, only to find that a bullet had pierced the sack and several books he had just checked out from the library before finally getting caught in one. Something tells us a Kindle wouldn't have been quite as sturdy.
