A copy of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was recently burned, but not as a protest against its content.

The Digital Reader recently shared a story from the BBC about prison inmates in the UK who appear to have smoked pages from the book, which was likely sprayed with a psychoactive substance.

Similar complaints and concerns had been raised in the United States as well, prompting a few to ban the donation of books to inmates.

Read about the Nottingham prison case on the BBC’s website and refresh your memory on the issue in the US on The Digital Reader.
