Amy and I took a quick trip to the library today. Our books were due, so we braved the elements (it was really raining here, now it’s snowing), returned them, and got some more.
On our quest for frugality, we decided to stop buying books. I did cave and buy a couple of books for my train ride this week. I couldn’t get to the library beforehand and I regret it. I spent $22 for 2 books! Atrocious, if you ask me. The best thing about the library? IT’S FREE!!!!!
I have also found out recently, that the Toronto Library sells off old books that they want to take out of circulation. If I recall what my co-worker said, they sell them for cheap, cheap, cheap! So if you like to own books, that’s fairly inexpensive options.
I picked up 3 books, due in 3 weeks…James Patterson, Jeffrey Archer, and Stephen King. That should be enough to tide me over…I like to read on the bus to and from work. Amy got the Mercedes Lackey book that she’s been wanting to read for forever, plus a few more in that fantasy genre.
So, do you take advantage of all your local library has to offer?
