Paradox in the Bookshop

"When the Viennese government compiled a Catalogue of Forbidden Books in 1765, so many Austrians used it as a reading guide that the Hapsburg censors were forced to include the Catalogue itself as a forbidden book." - (Craig Nelson,    Thomas Paine: Enlightenment, Revolution, and the Birth of Modern Nations)
