At a library, Julian checks out 30 books at once, although neither he nor anyone he knows has the intention of reading them. What's going on?

Relevant that there are 30 as opposed to say, 25?
Do they share a similar quality? If so, content? author? height? weight?
Did Julian intend to use them for something that one would not typically use books for? Such as propping open 30 doors? :-D
Was Julian's main purpose to remove them from the library? For instance, to keep another person from checking them out?
Did he intend to use them for decoration?
Mythbusters relevant?

Does he do it on a regular basis? Or he did it only once? Has he the intention of returning them?

Relevant in which period of the year he performed this "operation"?
