" ... a work of fiction by Estonian author Eduard Vilde."

Funny thing is, he was originally looking for 'Rarnaby Budge' by Charles Dikkens. That's Dikkens with two Ks, the well-known Dutch author.

Maybe he wanted to return the book to a Nazi library, but it seemed unlikely at this point?

I have done this. Checked out a library book on the last day of elementary school. Returned it 20+ years later.

You are not alone.  Did you see the link to the related article?  Apparently the father of our country couldn't tell a lie, but that didn't stop him from swiping a library book and ducking out on the overdue fees.
